A little empathetic reflection #1

I’ve done a lot of reflecting on what has supported the growth of my empathy, the tools I’ve used over the years to support a greater cultivation of empathetic engagement. I could write a thesis on my own reflections alone. One of the things that stand out strongly for me – in this moment at least – is a comfort in stillness and observation. Just watching and taking in the people and interactions that surround me. Just watching, letting my eyes rest on moments. Not holding the moments for deliberation, just letting my eyes softly stop and rest on the sight. – Jessie Giles
