How to Become More Empathetic

Scribbled Underline

Put yourself in other people's shoes.

This helps you get a better understanding of their outlook and perspective.

Be open to others' opinions and views.

This will help you have a more constructive conversation and may even change your mind about something.

Be patient and understanding.

One has to learn to acknowledge the other party’s feelings, without necessarily having to agree with their beliefs or decisions.

Be a keen listener

Try not to “own their story” and instead let them feel that they are being listened to and heard!

Be deliberately mindful

Learn to pay attention to the present moment and to accept it without being judgmental.
