empathy

“Sometimes it can be very productive, especially in a difficult situation, to actually switch perspectives and see from the other person’s point of view. What does the situation look like to them? This switch in perspective is the basis for developing empathy and is the essence of awakened heart and mind.”

David Nichtern (via abiding-in-peace)
