ANGER ON MY MIND

Building Empathy to Resolve Conflict

Posted on: August 4, 2009

Empathy is when you put yourself in the shoes of someone else and imagine how they feel.
Apathy is when you feel nothing. Sympathy is when you feel sorry for someone. Empathy is
the strongest of these personality traits that we should all feel in our lifetime in most or all situations. Being able to empathize with others is one way to be able to truly build healthy
relationships and resolve conflicts.
If you can see the point of view of the other person, you have a better chance of resolving the
conflict to everyone’s advantage. If you can only see your own point of view, you will not only
have problem resolving conflicts, but with any sort of communication as well.
