This is my answer to question 1
When we expand our ability to empathize, we can more easily connect with people from a place of understanding and compassion. The first step to building more empathy for others is really cultivating a healthy empathy for ourselves. This means approaching our actions with gentleness and learning to study our soul, notice our needs, make peace with our mistakes, celebrate our successes, and grow more comfortable with our imperfect life paths. Extending the same level of awareness to others lets us help them in the best way we can.
Empathizing with others is a beautiful skill but one that shouldn’t be left unchecked. It’s very possible, and quite common, to overempathize, giving more than we receive and letting our own emotions, needs, and desires dissolve and disappear in the feelings of another. To achieve better balance, we need to continually edit our empathy by identifying unhealthy empathic tendencies and breaking down bad habits. This leads to reciprocal relationships and more opportunities to embrace what feels good and discard what doesn’t.
