Ep.11 – More Heart, Less Heroics | 7keys: Empathy – Part 2

Let’s get real about self-sacrifice and what, if anything, it has to do with empathy. Candice shares a few hard-earned lessons she learned about ‘service’ while waiting tables, along with an intimate peek into how she and her partner often mess things up when it comes to offering empathy to one another. We’ll explore how hijacking vulnerability isn’t the same thing as helping, and explore options when it comes to supporting (versus saving) the people we love. The episode wraps up with four strategies to help us to develop emotional agility.
