Friendship: Friends show empathy.
|Reciprocal confidences deepen any relationship. Ideally those confidences are received with empathy. Empathy is identifying with another’s feelings. It is seeing life through his/her eyes.
How can you communicate empathy?
If you felt certain of a caring, empathetic response to a confidence, you would rarely hesitate to confide. However, when you are not certain of the response, you may find yourself teetering on the brink of intimate disclosures:
"Should I risk saying this or not?"
"Should I reveal this part of myself?"
"Can I trust my friend not to use my disclosure to hurt me in the future?"
