You all know I love Brene Brown. I think that’s clear. I’ve mentioned her in at least 14 blog posts to date. Make that 15.
One of the concepts that I particularly love is the difference between empathy and sympathy. It’s one that I knew on some subconscious level, because some people’s responses to my hard times felt like connection and comfort and others felt empty and unhelpful. Brene’s words clarified what I felt.
Now her explanation has an adorably animated video to go with. Who can resist hand drawn animals? Not me!
