Dear All,

For this week I would love for your to practice empathy.

ACTIVITY I: How is it to be someone else?

It is normal that in our relationships with others, at times, some difference in opinions arises. It is more difficult to be more empathetic with a person with whom we disagree this is not a case in the absence of a conflict.

  1. Pick one person from your family/work colleague/friend you think with whom your relationship is not going so well.
  2. By setting some time aside every day, attempt to find out how is to be him/her.
  3. Start asking him/her some simple questions, e.g., How do you usually feel when you get up in the morning? If you wake up moody, what helps you get over it?, etc.
  4. Use your curiosity to find out little by little about him/her every day. Continue a conversation with an open mind about the other person. Listen carefully and actively to what is she/he saying.
  5. Please write down your reflections in your notebook.

We will reflect on the empathetic practice in Week 9.

Thank you,

Warm regards,

Milena
