by Edmond Aman-Jean

Empathy is saying to someone:
ďIím trying to be a companion to you in your
search and your exploration.
I want to know, am I with you?
Is this the way it seems to you?
Is this the thing youíre trying to express?
Is this the meaning it has for you?Ē
So in a sense Iím saying,
ďIím walking with you step by step,
and I want to make sure I am with you.
Am I with you?
So thatís a little bit of my understanding
 about empathy."
Carl Rogers
