Understanding Empathy

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 19, 2020 Emotions

What Is Empathy? Empathy is an emotion in which the individual can comprehend or feel what someone else is encountering and the ability to put oneself in another’s position. Being compassionate is the capacity to perceive, learn, and share someone else’s feelings and sentiments. Experiencing sympathy is essential for building connections and making relations stronger by understanding the other person’s situation. It includes acknowledging someone else’s perspective instead of merely one’s own. Why Is Empathy Important? Empathy encourages us to help others, manufacture companionships, settle on suitable choices, and meditate when we see others being harassed. People start to indicate compassion in the earliest stages, and the attribute grows consistently through youth and puberty. Amid a challenge or emergency, we must feel like our feelings are acknowledged and perceived by others. The more significant part of our population knows about the sentiment of being misjudged for their weaknesses, left to...

Embrace Change

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 19, 2020 Life

‘Change is constant’ is one of the most clichéd quotes any human will hear throughout their lifetime. But the truth is that some of the most overused quotes carry the most power and truism with them. The concept of change is a universal and natural one. Everything that exists is constantly undergoing one form of change or the other. It is impossible to hide from it.

The major reason is that change tampers with comfort. Change comes with adjustments that can be stressful. On the other hand, people detest change especially when...

The Dangers of Self-Development

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 19, 2020 Life

The average human yarns for perfection, to be free from the shackles of flaws that come in the form of addictions, negative thoughts, dream killers and other minor vices. We will do anything to achieve that Zen-like state where it looks like everything is in order and life simply becomes a sail on a smooth, peaceful ocean. If we don’t achieve such a state of mental utopia, we begin to see ourselves as failures, as people who definitely have faults and should do anything to get it right. This thought in itself is majorly a trap, because that state of ‘perfection’ doesn’t exist anywhere in the world. It is a destination that continues to remain a mirage even as we approach closer. The problem here is that many people have little or no idea that they are chasing shadows. They continue to live in dissatisfaction which causes them not to...

Comfort Kills Productivity

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 17, 2020 Productivity

The mention of the word ‘comfort’ instantly conjures an image of bliss, relaxation, happiness and peace. This is a state that many would love to bask in for the rest of their lives, and truly this is a valid wish and aspiration.

Just as the name implies, many people get into this zone and get hooked in comfort and complacence, losing even the little zest and zeal they once had for life. The longer they reside in the comfort zone the unhappier they get as time goes by,...
