On empathy

Being  on the receiving end of empathy allows me to re-frame situations in a newer, perhaps healthier, light. And being on the giving end allows me to be a true friend.

When you’ve been heard, you never want to go back underground with the powerful points of your life. And when I listen, I know I am offering a gift.
