An awesome, short video by Dr. Brené Brown that explains the difference between sympathy & empathy.

BY indefiniteloop

I think that this video does something that none have been able to do for me - it explains, in a very simple language, what’re the differences between empathy and sympathy are.

I am not sure about any one else, but I am not very emotionally expressive guy. I do not know how to empathise; I did not even know how to approach anyone who would be feeling pain or was/is feeling low. Not until, I watched the video.

Must Watch - Difference Between Empathy & Sympathy

It’s undoubtedly one of the best tutorials, of any kind whatsoever, that I’ve had stumbled onto. Dr. Brene ´ Brown explains in two odd minutes, the difference between sympathy, and empathy. She shows us how to form connections, and how these connections further help us sharing the pain, and suffering of others. There are two more videos embedded below. I absolutely loved these videos, and thought that I did share ’em here.

If you have a couple of minutes to spare today, then do watch this video - it’s a must watch!

The Power Of Vulnerability

Dr. Brené Brown has spent at least a decade researching, and studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame. She loves studying human connections - empathy, love, belonging, et. all.

In the second video embedded below - The Power of Vulnerability, she tells us that vulnerability is not a weakness. She further says that instead of it being a weakness, vulnerability is the fastest, surest way to courage, and creating meaningful connections.
