empathy is understanding someone elses feelings and being able to relate with them. i think that it is important for people to have, because it helps us be a little more ‘human’. its nice to have because you can feel like other people care about you when you’re having a hard time, or even if youre just happy that something good happened.
since me and my best friend (averie kristina giles) and i are basically the same person its really easy for us to have empathy for each other. a lot of the time when shes sad about something or if im sad about something its easy to have empathy because we understand what its like, and if we have a success its really nice to have someone who will celebrate it with you. i think that it really helps people to connect when they have empathy for someone, because they can relate to them and that can make friendships and relationships stronger.
