What  is empathy? Empathy is an attitude in which a person puts himself in someone’s shoes to experience his/her feelings. Moreover, it drives us to act  through a series of chemical processes that are activated in our brain.

An example of empathic attitude is that of Patricia Moore, a 26-year-old- designer, who proposed to her colleagues the idea of a refrigerator with a door, so that a person with arthritis could easily open it. Yet, she was the only one who imagined the difficulties elderly people might find, putting herself in their shoes by pretending to be an elderly person.

Thanks to her disguise, objects that anyone could easily use were produced. Thanks to Patricia Moore’s experience, we can say that empathy helps our creative thinking, too. It also improves our interpersonal relationships, it can create new ones or make our relationships more lasting.

Empathy is undoubtedly one of the ingredients necessary to transform our world and bring a positive change. Moreover, it is also the secret element to increase the welfare of the community. It allows us to build a better future together,  through discussion, dialogue, understanding, brotherhood and solidarity.

In short, empathy definitely helps us to improve our life!
