Among the skills, empathy stands out as a fundamental competence for social coexistence. This word refers to the ability to place oneself in the other's place, perceive their feelings and act in accordance with that perception.

Once understood as a function of human intelligence, empathy becomes the basis of a greater learning, which goes from childhood to adult life and refers to the management of emotions.

There is a power in empathy that affects our life.


The behavior of who is empathetic
Being empathetic is, first of all, being a good listener. It is having an openness to know the reality of the other and everything that he communicates, even what is not said, but that can be perceived in the tone of voice or in the look.


Knowing how to listen, empathic people do not make hasty judgments about the behavior of the other, trying to perceive, first, the reasons that lead them to act in a certain way. In addition, these people know how to practice forgiveness, understand and achieve a balance between what they expect and what the other can offer.

They are also always willing to help, to help solve problems. They are attentive to the needs of the other and offer help because they really care about their doubts or pains.


Finally, these people treat others the way they expect to be treated. By distributing understanding and kindness, that is what they receive back.

The power of empathy as a two-way street

The benefits are not only felt by those who live with an empathic person: in reality, that ability makes the life of those who are willing to cultivate it, improve their relationships and have a positive impact on their well-being.


In the family, coexistence becomes lighter. Thanks to the tolerance to deal with different personalities, the empathic person enjoys patience and support in the family relationship. In studies or in the professional environment, knowing how to understand different points of view, who has empathy manages to expose their ideas better without invalidating the contribution of each colleague, achieving success in teamwork.
 
In the relationship with friends or partner, the cultivation of that skill strengthens trust between people. Confident, they open up more and manage to forge bonds based on respect for the truth of the other, favoring the permanence of relationships. 

The effect of empathy on children

As they grow older, children expand the social circle, experiencing interactions that favor the acquisition of empathy and other social-emotional skills important for children's learning and development.

When they experience it in family coexistence, they learn with parents to exercise it daily, children create mechanisms to better face the challenges of the school and it is possible to perceive positive reflections on school performance and on the behavior of the child as a whole.

As long as the child knows the benefit of empathy, he will want to start practicing faster, but his positive effects multiply in the different areas of his early life. And since it is a skill, everything will be a matter of availability for learning, because the earlier the lessons begin, the better for their healthy development.


Learning and long-term benefits

La Empathy is not easy to practice, especially in the midst of a hectic life full of pressures. But, with persistence, it is possible to make small changes and, little by little, perceive improvements in the relationship in the family, at work or among friends.

 

Living a lesson every day, the ability to place yourself in the place of the other becomes the main rule for social coexistence, guiding a behavior that will bring success in interpersonal relationships in any situation. And for you, how has that learning been? How has the power of empathy impacted your mental and emotional health? Tell us a little in the comments! I'll wait for you!
