We have different emotions and different kinds of empathy.

Empathy is the ability to step outside of your own bubble and into the bubbles of other people.”
― C. Joybell

I want to create empathy. Empathy is the key to collaboration and understanding. There are different kinds of understanding so there must be different kinds of empathy.

If empathy is sharing another person’s feeling—not knowing but sharing—then both people have to be able to recognize a common feeling, generate this feeling in themselves, and communicate the feeling. These three emotional things have to happen for empathy to manifest: recognition, generation, and communication.
