October: Empathy

October: Empathy
“Judge your neighbour’s feelings by your own, and in every matter, be
thoughtful.” (Sir 31: 15)
God wants us to care about everyone’s feelings. An empathetic person…
Can understand and name their feelings
Cares about other’s feelings
Listens carefully to others
Listens for clues in tone of voice
Watches expressions and body gestures for messages
Notices when someone is upset
Can see and respect how others look at things
Knows that others may feel differently about things than they do
Responds generously to help others
