Friday Writing - Empathy
Empathy is an important ability. It is essentially the ability to understand another person's situation. Being able to "put oneself into another's shoes" is truly an important part of being human.
Can you feel how another person does when they skin their knee?
Do you have the ability to understand someone's feeling when a family pet dies?
Do you understand the feeling a person has when a surprise party is held in their honor?
Read these three question again. Think about your answers to these questions.
Now, how do YOU know how these people feel?
Write a paragraph explaining how you can understand another person's feelings.
I hope you all have a wonderful spring weekend!!
