Empathy allows us a unique ability to feel and experience things through the eyes of another. As an empath I have utilized my special gift to help people feel safe, confident and connected to something powerful and beautiful within themselves. The journey of healing is a difficult process to embark and not going through it alone can make a world of difference.
“Empathy is…communicating that incredibly healing message of, ‘you’re not alone.’” -Brene Brown
