EMPATHY

​Personally I think this is one of the most important of all of our values. It is obvious that one has less empathy with others when we feel stressed or have limited opportunities to connect with others. The pandemic undoubtedly created a deficit of empathy. This is further affected by the preponderance of digital communication through social media, emails etc. The image above illustrates the value of face to face communication and how this enables people to understand each other’s point of view and ultimately help others.
