I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too!
Day 74: What does it mean to be human? I would say empathy makes us human. It’s about more than just the ability to recognize another person’s emotions as happy or sad–you’re able to connect with them on a deeper level and understand those emotions.
