Walk in someone else's shoe that is the saying. A quote that is simple while getting the point across to its listeners. Experiencing what someone else has felt or is feeling comes naturally in people everywhere. There are natural disasters, mass shootings, physical diseases everywhere, somewhere around the world. When they happen the public synchronizes and feels the pain that these people feel. When a person cries people start to cry because of some kind of thought or feeling that is being displayed by others. People who share each others experiences in these terrible events are naturally comforting the other people around them. This comforting and empathizing allows people who are directly effected by these events to heal. There is some untapped potential by people that is not beeing seen here. Not the fact that we can come together as a mass and support, but the ability to experience what others are feeling. Even if we dont know the person we have the ability to empathize. My question is this if we do have the ability is there a reason we are not doing this with mental health?
More and more people are developing some kind of mental issue. There are many reasons for this. One of the reason is because people all around us are disconnected from one another. Think about this, if you are sitting in your house for 2-3 days how do you think you will feel? If you were in school/work and have no friends how do you think you would feel?
