  • Summary

  • This episode is part 2 of Ali and I's conversation on empathy during the current crises. We explore the range of our emotional reactions after a crisis has shocked millions into empathy, such as the tragic explosion in Beirut, Lebanon recently. Lebanon here stands symbolically for all the crises we face of course, one after the other. I also share a couple of intimate stories of my childhood, growing up in some explosions and warfare and the impact it has had on my career in emotional intelligence.

    Is it okay to feel fear and anger during tragedy? What do we do with our subdued desire for empathy after anger, that fiery emotion, turns into a sad melancholy? Have the hit after hit of crises made our generation crises junkies?  We defer to to the Emotional Intelligence experts once again.  Is an 'integrated mind' as neuroscience experts like Daniel Siegel the solution to how we process crises and empathy?  

    Fearlessly yours,
    Tania and Ali
