We live in bitterness – Marian Rojas Estapé

We live in bitterness, we have no empathy

We live in bitterness because we lack empathy.

This is one of the messages that Psychiatrist Marian Rojas Estapé brings us.

In this video, Dr. Marian Rojas Estapé talks about empathy. We live in a society without empathy, we do not know how to manage our emotions, we relate from the mind and we are not able to put ourselves in other people’s shoes.

We can recognize emotions, but we do not feel empathy, we do not put ourselves in their shoes, much less feel compassion. We live in a society without compassion.

Our way of communicating is increasingly digital, through social networks such as whatsapp, we can not appreciate signs or emotional expressions in the faces, so we do not generate empathy towards who is talking to us .

Having empathy feels good, makes both your mind and your body feel better, generates less cortisol, favoring your physical and mental health and that of the people around you.

Empathy as the basis of our relationships

Empathy allows us to put ourselves in the other person’s shoes, feel what they feel, identify their emotions and understand their perspective. We must stop relating them to the mind and move to an emotional plane. When we are empathetic, we create a bridge between ourselves and others, leading to greater understanding and harmony. But what happens when that bridge collapses or is not even built?

Bitterness in the digital age

We live in a digital age where social networks dominate much of our interactions. Despite being “connected” all the time, these connections are often superficial. Marian Rojas Estapé points out that this constant exposure to the lives of others without a true emotional connection can lead us to compare ourselves and feel dissatisfied with our own lives.

The cycle of bitterness

Lack of empathy not only disconnects us from others, it also disconnects us from ourselves. We become critical, judgmental and often resentful. This attitude leads us into a spiral of bitterness where every interaction or experience is viewed through a negative lens.

Reconnecting with empathy

All is not lost. According to Dr. Rojas Estapé, there are concrete steps we can take to cultivate empathy:

  1. Active listening: When conversing, it is vital to be present and genuinely listen to what the other person is saying.
  2. Avoid premature judgments: Before judging, it is important to understand the entire situation.
  3. Practice self-empathy: Knowing and understanding yourself is the first step to understanding others.
  4. Limit time on social networks: Set limits so as not to fall into the cycle of comparison.

Empathy is more than a skill; it is a necessity in our world today. Knowing how to manage and identify our emotions is key. The vision of Dr. Marian Rojas Estapé reminds us of the importance of genuinely connecting with others to create a more harmonious and happier society. By cultivating empathy, we not only improve our relationships, but also combat the bitterness that has taken over many of our lives.
