Empathy: the Most Important Thing

Empathy is the most significant factor in relationships
Relationships are the most important things we have. Connections with our family, friends, coworkers, and spouses are the most valuable assets we could ever acquire, and they add more value to our life than any amount of money or success ever could.

The most influential element in forming relationships is not personality, nor similarities, nor attitude, nor initiative. The most significant factor is empathy.

Empathy is the most powerful tool we have, and the fundamental glue that binds people together.
