"Empathy is at the heart of connection—it is the circuit board for leaning into the feelings of others, reflecting back a shared experience of the world, and reminding them that they are not alone.  To be able to stand in discomfort with people who are processing shame, or hurt, or disappointment, or hardship, and to be able to say to them “I see you, and I can hold space for this” is the epitome of courage.  The best part is that empathy is not hardwired into our genetic code:  We can learn it." Brené Brown
