Is there any moment that came in your life where you have felt that you are just stuck with not moving forward? Or a time when you really feel helpless of staring over everything once again, and also you cannot do anything to move forward? Well, this thing is called Mid-Life Crisis, but there is another similar and very serious term named Mid-Career Crisis. This is the situation where you realize or feel that you are just stuck in your career, and there is no chance that you will ever get a promotion or when there is no chance of progress in your career. True Meaning & Symptoms of Mid-Career Crisis There is no doubt that it is really a depressing situation when you have already spent a major part of your life struggling to get somewhere and in the end, you are not happy with it.

What is Empathy?

A black background with red border with a quote on it

Do you think that you really care about others? Can you sense and feel the pain in someone? Well, that exact feeling is Empathy. Now, most people will get confused between empathy and sympathy. Sympathy is that someone is in pain, and you try to console them in order to help them alleviate that pain whereas empathy in simple words is when someone else is in pain, and you feel that pain in your heart too, then that is the exact feeling known as Empathy. This is the best feeling in the world, because now here you are not thinking for others as the show of gratitude, but instead, you put yourself in the same position as them to understand how would you feel if you are in the place of that person.

Sympathy and Empathy

Sympathy is something that you need to develop in yourself, but empathy is something that will develop inside you naturally. According to Daniel Goleman, there are five different elements of Empathy, and if you have all five of these elements in you then you can consider that you have Empathy in you. So the first and main element is helping to develop people or to help them to grow. To understand this element is simple because all you need to do is help someone to progress. Like you can provide some kind of coaching to others that would help them in their career, or if someone is struggling then praise them to create a feel for enthusiasm for more struggle. You can even motivate others by your words as well, either written or spoken.

Different Elements

The second element is to understand people, and here it is meant that you feel what they feel. If someone is feeling down, then never criticize them or make them feel lower. Instead, cheer them, show them all the positivity around, make them realize that they are not alone. The best example of this element is doctors and other medical staff, who do not care about the background of any of their patient and treat each patient equally, with extreme care, and responsibility. The third element is really necessary for business owners if they want to run their business successfully, and above all with empathy. In this element, you need to make sure that your customers are just like your own friends and family members, for whom you will always give priority to provide the best services and products.

Prioritize your Customers

The same is the case here as well because here you need to let your customers realize that they have made the right choice by dealing with your company. Make sure that they are getting what they desire, provide them concession with as much. The fourth element is no less in importance than others as well. Especially for the government if they want to empathize with their people then they need to make sure that all the promises that they have made with their people during election campaigns are fulfilled after they have been elected. No doubt every single person of the nation must have hundreds of expectations from their political leaders, so you must ensure that all of their legal expectations should be fulfilled without any delay.

Be Helpful

Lastly, open up opportunities for others. This may sound impossible, but it is possible if you try, and look upon it. It is not necessary that you are able to help people whenever they need someone.A little help goes a long way.


A Note from the Writer

According to my personal belief, a lot can get better, a lot can change if we all start practising the virtue of empathy. The heinous acts like crimes, rape, theft, murder etc all can end if we start understanding the pain of others before inflicting any harm on them. If we start valuing individuals around, we will also value the individual within.

I don’t understand how giving pain to others can be a sign of relief for others. That is how frustrating and sick society is becoming. The only way to be out of this hell loop of sins every single day is to start practising empathy. As the moment you start evaluating what impact your actions have on others then there is nothing you will ever do intentionally which can hurt them.

The moment care, empathy and humanity vanishes from a society, evil takes precedence. Also one thing, there is no such thing as a devil which forces you to do wrong, it is really your own call from within. No one is perfect, we all have positive and negative thoughts from within it is just about what type of thoughts you cultivate, choose and practice your entire life that makes you a good or bad person.

Lets start to practice goodness by each person reading this, promise that they will stop one bad habit that they have practised for long enough now.

A Journey to Self-Care

What is self-care? Self-care is any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated. It is about valuing yourself, giving yourself a break, and accepting who you are. It is about knowing that it is okay to fall but at the same time having the belief that you deserve better and that better is something you can get for yourself only. So since you only have the key to the door of your dreams shouldn’t you take care of yourself as surely if the person with the key was someone else you would have done whatever it takes, for them to hand that key to you. Why is self-care important? It helps raise one’s self-esteem and self-confidence. It prepares one to face the world with a brighter smile as you know what your strengths are and what is it that you need to work on. Most importantly it helps you to understand yourself as after all you cannot understand the world until you understand yourself. Nowadays, people have a preoccupied lif

How to know your worth?

Self-worth means that you value yourself, and you have a sense of self-value which means that you are worthy. Self-worth is defined by  Merriam-Webster  as : “A feeling that you are a good person who deserves to be treated with respect” . Here are five of the top factors that people use to measure and compare their own self-worth to the worth of others: 1.   Appearance—whether measured by the number on the scale, the size of clothing worn, or the kind of attention received by others; 2.   Net worth—this can mean income, material possessions, financial assets, or all of the above; 3.   Who you know/your social circle—some people judge their own value and the value of others by their status and what important and influential people they know; 4.   What you do/your career—we often judge others by what they do; for example, a stockbroker is often considered more successful and valuable than a janitor or a teacher; 5.   What you achieve—as noted earlier, we frequently use ach

Teens In a Dilemma Of What Is Right And What Is Wrong

A teenager, or teen, is a person who falls within the ages of 13 to 19 years old. The word "teenager" is often associated with adolescence. However the World Health Organization considers anyone between the ages of 10 and 21 to be an adolescent, and most neurologists consider the brain still developing into the early third decade (early 20s). After the 20th birthday, one is no longer a teenager. However, neural plasticity continues, as the brain and particularly the prefrontal cortex (PFC) develop further. When typical teen behavior becomes troubled teen behavior As teenagers begin to assert their independence and find their own identity, many experience behavior changes that can seem, bizarre and unpredictable to parents. Your sweet and obedient child who once couldn’t bear to be separated from you, now won’t be seen within 20 yards of you, and greets everything you say with the roll of the eyes or the slam of a door. As difficult as this can be for paren
