Empathy. How do you empathize? Usually people empathize not right, because when a friend tells about a problem, people try to give an advice. But here is a problem because they look on the problem from their opinion and their personality, position.
"I fall in love with this girl. She is my crush. When I see her I even can't speak, her beauty makes me sick. I should write to her... But I don't know how to start a conversation." — a guy tells a problem to his friend.
And a friend who when falls in love with somebody and usually don't speak with his crushes says: "Hey, don't do it. It's stupid to write to her."
What's happened? He started to give a piece of advice and he gave an advice based on his position.
He thinks that his friend is a person who he knows well, but it's not.
About me: to be honest I can't truly empathize like a lot people in.the world, because I give piece of advice to my friends with problems. I start to treat people.
So, as I already wrote, one of the components of emotional intelligence is empathy. And when you can empathy you can build better relationship with people.
I will write about empathy soon.
