They care about others' pain, and do their best to support them. Their best moment when they get the chance to help someone. They believe that others' problems are not just others' problems, whenever they can help.
Empathetic people are constantly alert to their interactions with others whether it's in line at the grocery store, on the freeway, calling customer service, talking to friends - talking to strangers. Their daily life, inside of their heads, is the subconscious questioning of how their actions are affecting another. They understand that 'There, but for the grace of God (or some cosmic force), go I.'
An empathetic person on the freeway, for example, anticipates that the person moving over into his lane without signaling will need space - and they give it to them. The empathetic person doesn't judge the other driver, but realizes how many times he himself has been inattentive or unfocused. An empathetic person doesn't assume the worst in another, but the best.
An empathetic person watches the facial expression of people he meets and notices how his words are affecting that person and modifies his discourse accordingly. He has nothing to prove about himself in his daily interactions with others and therefore endeavors to listen carefully to another's needs rather than expressing his own.
Empathy is not sympathy and therefore doesn't imply that the empathetic person is merely sorry for another's pain, but that he understands the pain and desires to alleviate it for that person.
Empathy is not judgmental. It walks with grace and balance. The empathetic person knows no borders, nor race, nor nationality. He sees everyone as he sees himself or herself; he understands the human condition and his goal is to do his humble part toward alleviating any pain and toward humbly inspiring.
An empathetic person constantly asks himself, "What would I like someone to do for me?" and does it. He understands that he can over-shoot his mark by his assumptions about another's needs and is careful to observe what those needs might be, neither embellishing nor diminishing them.
An empathetic person asks, "What can I do to help?" always being careful that he doesn't put himself above another.
An empathetic person analyzes his own motivation and when he suspects his actions are for some reward or accolade, he immediately adjusts his mind to make his motivations pure.
The empathetic person sees beyond religion, beyond philosophy, and believes most fervently, that humankind is at its best when we hold hands and walk together.
The empathetic person is one who realizes that there ARE "habits" of empathy and thus takes the time to ask such an insightful question:)
This answer is a precious piece of art, it could be a fantastic Hub. I will print it and put in a my file to read it again and again.
Cristin and Taleb80 - You both really made my day. Thank you so much; your comments mean a great deal to me. This ques. by midget38 was really a WONDERFUL "prompt"! Thank you m38
They listen to others, care for them. It is about getting out of our own selves and being able to understand others and their feelings, so, we can interact in a caring way.
My son's school gives them agendas that teach them great principles to become students of honor. Empathy is one of the values and habit we worked on a few months ago and I know he knows what I mean when I talk about it now. Sometimes, I just have to say care or empathy and he would change the way he does something. Lovely!
Thank you midget38.
Since you are so sweet and sincere, I will give you a sincere answer.
You will find plenty of answers in self-help, motivational, coaching and life skills books. My experience, and my Teachers philosophy, is that meditation is the answer to All life's questions. Pray and serve, and serve and pray. They go together.
What are the habits of empathetic people? They see beauty in the small things so that when the time comes, they do not fail in the larger ones. They strive to identify with our sorrows and pray for our well-being. They try to avoid hurting us by malicious gossip. They pray interiorly or meditate daily and send out loving thoughts.
They tend to look for opportunities to lend a helping hand, but they are not philantrophist in a mundane sense. They do all for the love or glory of God. Their only goal is loving service, and they have an unshakeable belief in Something Higher. Their friends are always like-minded wholesome people. Still they serve ALL as they see God in all. They practice purity in thought, word and deed.
They tend to eat satvic food and abstain from intoxicating liquids. They are weary of 'noisy' people. All empathetic people are spiritual people. They do not like to do to others, what they do not like for themselves. They see the positive and pray for the advancement of mankind or God's victory here on earth and there in heaven. Some know this, and some don't. They can be found even among atheists. Loving thoughts.
Feeling for people harder than the normal capacity of human nature allows.
Empathetic people have the gift of knowing. They have an intuitive nature that enables them to identify with you and what you are experiencing. They know just the right thing to say or do in order to connect with you. Individuals that are able to "put them selves in your shoes" have often experienced great pain and suffering in their own lives. They are able to console you because they have walked where you are treading and have had the same or similar experiences. The greatest asset that an empathetic person has is that of "listening and being fully present with you."
My habits were formed at a very young age and I have followed them ever since. I believe in walking a mile in his mocassins to try to know how he is feeling. Imagining how I would feel if it was me, but most of all, wanting to help.
