I like this video because I am able to remember two (for me) valuable messages:
1/ Try to connect on „humanness“ level (feelings + needs).
2/ Receive empathy to be able to give it.
Thanks, and I am looking forward to watch you on screen in 2019
Thank you Mirek, looking forward to have you as a ‘watcher’ again in 2019:-)
I just wanted to let u know that I recently discovered your channel.
And I’m so glad. I can really relate to the way u explain the concepts.
Thank u so much! You’re doing an AMAZING JOB!
Thank you Larisa that is very supportive to hear!
At first I thought…Oh, I get this…I know about this…blah, blah, blah…But at the end when you talked about the need to RECEIVE empathy in order to be able to GIVE empathy, and the space created by receiving…BAM. This hit me like a sledge hammer. If you don’t receive it enough…it is very hard to give it. Sounds like common sense when you say/write it, but no…it is a deep insight. What a wonderful concept…having empathy buddies!! And you, Marianne, admitting that you need your buddies to be able to keep your heart open to others. Wow…that’s touching, and powerful. Thank you for being vulnerable enough to share this, to provide a wonderful role model that emphasizes the IMPORTANCE of receiving empathy!! Now…to find a “buddy”…or maybe even two!…wonderful goal…essential goal. I’m going to work on it ASAP. First by sharing this video!! Thanks!
Thanks Barbara I feel thrilled to receive this appreciation and also about your intention to find an empathy buddy. Keep me posted how it goes!!
