My shero Brené Brown would say empathy is a huge part of connection, and I agree, as long as you can set some clear boundaries for yourself. I think a better choice is compassion however. I talk about this and more in my latest blog about three common ways that we relate to others: sympathetically, empathetically and compassionately.

My journal is too big to scan (whoops) So I had to take a picture. Next time I'll make it fit in an 8 x 11 border so I can scan it properly!
Here's my first two assignments for the week. One is about giving yourself permission and my list is going to be a work in progress but this is the start of it.
The other is about embracing your imperfection–being able to look back at that journal page and remembering what it feels like to be present with that feeling. Especially useful when you're feeling "less than." I took a "bad" photo just so I could do some extra embracing. It actually felt pretty great!
