empathy.jpgA good man is empathic..he naturally flows out to others..Empathic men…listen and stand beside you, and in their presence you have an uncanny feeling that you have been given permission to be yourself.”  –Sam Keene

I desire to be such a man: available, a listener, a responder, empathic, flowing out to others, making people feel comfortable. I seek to get behind others’ eyes to see where they are coming from, where they are hurting or rejoicing. Where others can tap into my strength and health, and have it not deplete me. To be safe for all to share with, allowing people to be their best, most loving, selves through my authentic friendship..
