Vulnerability & Empathy

‘When we take the risk of really witnessing another human being, when we validate their human experience, we risk becoming recruited to their welfare.’ (Quoting Robert Keegan from Harvard.) I allow my empathy to be engaged, and once it is – because my feelings help teach me what my values are – I’m on the path for which there is no return. I am inexorably an advocate when I allow my empathy to be engaged.” Ashley Judd
