I enjoyed this article about the relatively new idea that mental health is important as part of our overall health. We need to take care of our mind and emotions and much as we take care of our physical body.
“We thought for a while that everything was about protons, neutrons and electrons – that is, until quantum physics came along. For a while, we also thought that human health necessitated the killing of germs.” – Robin Grille
Empathy is not as easy as I originally thought. It’s not sympathy, but a true understanding of what the other person feels.
I enjoyed this article by Robin Grille and I think it’s more than worth the few minutes it will take to read.
“I believe the empathic experience means that you feel, in your own body, a little of what another person feels – without losing your sense of self in the process. In other words, you don’t lose sight of the fact that the feelings, emotions or sensations belong to the other person and not to you.” – Robin Grille
