Every Monday I share a devotion, article, or video from one of my favorite writers, speakers, or ministers. Today I’m sharing a short animated video by Dr. Brené Brown, explaining the difference between sympathy and empathy.

Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston and has spent the past sixteen years studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. She is the author of three #1 New York Times bestsellers – The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, and Rising Strong. Her latest book, Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and The Courage to Stand Alone, will be released Fall 2017.

Brené’s TED talk – The Power Of Vulnerability– is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world with over 30 million views.
