Empathy

I want to remember for safe passage in my encounters. So I am writing it down.

Empathy. Real empathy. Really trying to understand where the other person is.  Not trying to guess correctly where they are (and congratulate self for understanding). Not trying to fix them or change them. Not offering advice or solutions. Really caring about them. Really giving. Attention and presence. Really being curious. Genuinely, authentically. Observing, witnessing the feeling. Holding space for the feeling. Staying present and connected.
