Empathy rarely extends beyond our line of sight – therefore out of sight out of mind? What if we were more of what we were because of what has happened to ourselves or others, Interpretation not only of our own trauma, but the interpretation of the len’s of someone else’s.
Recognizing the value of another human being, noticing each other’s strengths. The cognitive framing can change our response to future experiences of ourselves and others. When we change our perspective on the experience of every human being we truly embrace diversity, and with this we connect through communication in the most powerful way.
