We need to show more empathy to relate to how someone feels.
My first reason why we need to be empathetic is so that we make others feel comfortable, happy not all heavy hearted when others say bad tempered words to them.
Secondly put your feet in someone else's shoes to learn about their perspective and opinions. For instance if someone went in my body and I thought that something was important but they didn't feel the same way they would most likely start to feel the same way as me and act differently.
For example there is a new person in the class they feel scared and need help so you help them by looking through the new person’s glasses and you see what they see and try to act differently.
