3 ways empathy can improve your life

Does it ever feel like people are all self-absorbed jerks? Like they’re not listening? Only in it for themselves. You’re not crazy. Empathy is declining.




Here’s how to be more empathetic:

  • Listen. And then open up until you have a “vulnerability hangover.”
  • Try meditation. Broaden the loving fuzzy feelings past family and friends.
  • Expose yourself to different ways of living. Hang out with different people. If it can end slavery, it can help you.
