Use this eight step process to develop your self empathy/regulation skills.

Our brains tend to see those outside our circle of belonging as non-human. This occurs reflexively when we have more advantages than others. When we notice people that look like us, we'll think about them, wonder about them, and imagine their lives, and empathize more -- but not so for those of other affiliations, classes, "races", etc. Working with this is crucial if we want to live nonviolently. Read on for 7 related practices.

Everyone in your life, and most especially you, will benefit from this.

Trainer Tip: If you're doing personal growth work, and changing your behaviors, you may find yourself wanting others to join your efforts with similar levels of enthusiasm. When they don't do so, you may feel frustrated and place judgments on them, thinking they aren't as caring. You'll be less likely to feel disappointed in people if you remind yourself that when you do personal growth work, what needs you are meeting for yourself.
