What role does empathy play in your life and how has it helped you?
Empathy is the basis of all human relationships, and is what makes life worth living. Without empathy, I wouldn't be able to enjoy my own feelings or relate to the feelings of others.
Due to my upbringing, I had a much harder time with empathy and social relationships as a younger person. As I moved into adulthood, I began to develop a stronger empathic response to other people, and my life has been dramatically better since then.
