Feeling emotions deeply & empathy = greater brain development.


Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

brain

People who don’t feel emotions deeply and don’t have empathy and don’t have self insight, will often say that those who do – are weak, lack strength and are stupid.

This is because, those who don’t have these, can’t understand them and their ego will assume it means the other empathic, emotional, insightful person, is wrong, weaker.

I read that people with empathy, who feel emotions deeply have that area of the brain more developed and this is being proven with neuroscience. There is also more blood flow and brain activity in that area, so this means more development is occurring too.

Whereas, those who lack empathy, don’t feel emotions deeply, don’t have compassion for others, actually have less brain development and less blood flow and less activity, and that area of the brain, continues to die and shrink.

If not exercised, the brain dies quicker.
