Empathy: The Upside and Downside
November 5, 2020
Hosted by Dr. Paula Joyce
Empathy is far more complex than we have been led to believe. When there is healthy empathy, it supports the mutual exchange of love, strengthens cooperation, enhances our passion for life, and increases our well-being. When empathy is out of balance, it can cause problems. When someone has too much emotional empathy, they can easily be manipulated by people with too little empathy. In addition to emotional empathy, we can also have physical, mental, and spiritual empathy. With physical empathy, for example, you may feel someone else’s pain and even unintentionally take some of it into your own body because you want them to feel good. Once we understand what is happening to us and why, we can choose to do things differently and lead a healthier happier life. Please join us this Thursday to learn more about the different kinds of empathy and how to prevent the negative aspects and increase the positives of being an empathetic person.

Learning to see life from a spiritual perspective can change the way we think, which changes everything. As we let go of fear, worry, regret, blame, anger, guilt, resentment, jealousy and shame, we can create the loving, joyful, prosperous, healthy life that we want and deserve.
The best or worst place to live is in our own mind. You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness. Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit is broadcast live every Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
