"the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.the ability to understand and share the feelings of another."
so hi assalamualaikum
after a really long weekend of doing nothing, i am finally in the mood for work (so last minute already), its currently 10pm on a Monday night, like woahh, time flies.
Anyways the first thing that i wanted to do before really getting into work was update my blog, its been to long honeyhhhh. I've been neglecting it for way too long. why ? its because i lost my purpose, i forgot why i started my blog in the first place. i forgot how to enjoy just typing away nonsense and nobody caring, i forgot about the joy that writing gave me. but now that i am at my wits end with no push to move forward, i keep looking for something to do, something to keep me sane, to keep me grounded, to make sure i remember who i am, and here i am, back at writing
so yeah, that was on long intro. back to my point about empathy. today of all days from personal experience and others peoples story, i came to realize how important empathy is. we all should be treating people with empathy and we deserve to be treated with empathy as well, well of course that is up to a certain extent. but i am not here to define that extent, all i want to talk about is empathy itself. i may not be someone with empathy but i hope by talking about it i may become someone with empathy and maybe help others become a person with a more empathetic view.
The point here is, we can never know why a person acts or do things a certain way, we will never know what the root for mistakes are for everyone, at the end of the day, people make mistakes, people are flawed and we wont know the reason, we may know yet not understand the circumstances that people are experiencing. so to a certain extent, you should give people a chance, give them the space of " maybe he has something going on right now", and "maybe she's have some issues at home" and so many other things. just open up your heart and allow yourself to be vulnerable to these possible thoughts before judging and making up your mind. You could be in a hard situation and imagine everyone treating you strictly with no empathy at all, and just with one flaw, your image is decided.
give people that space, that deserved treatment, and surely Allah will give you the same.
i know what i'm saying doesn't really make sense right now, if you understand what empathy is, than that's enough cause i just suck at giving examples.
mind you, i haven't been writing in while so i am rusted and busted.
