Sensitivity

Sensitivity
(vs. Callousness)

Trying to understand others' needs, feelings, and experiences

To practice Sensitivity I will:

Do you remember the droid called C3PO from Star Wars? He was a protocol droid – he was fluent in the languages and customs for over six million forms of communication throughout the universe. He was used whenever someone had to communicate with someone from another country or galaxy.  He helped them speak the same language and also made sure that their body language did not contradict what they were saying.  Wouldn’t it be nice if we all had the range of sensitivity that C3PO had?

This month practice Sensitivity by focusing on others by building empathy and listening skills.
