The Art of Empathy: Sympathy & Understanding Others
Listen to episode 32 of the Inspirational Living podcast: The Art of Empathy: Sympathy & Understanding Others. Adapted from the book Seeing and Being by H. Clay Trumbull.
Podcast Excerpt: The common belief is that, in order to come into sympathy with someone, and to like them deeply, you must first know them thoroughly and understand them as they are; but the truer truth is that, in many cases, the sympathy and liking must PRECEDE the understanding; and that the worthier one is of being loved and admired, the more difficulty there is of understanding them until you DO love them, or until in some way you come to have a feeling of kinship with them.
