  • I agree and support this blog post because I also think that the power of language stems from communication. Language creating relationships is a common I see throughout our everyday world. I like how you mentioned that even the deaf and blind have a way to communicate with others because it shows how strong the power of language is.

    • Peyton, I agree with how you said that empathy is the key to creating meaningful relationships. I really like the quotes that you used because they add to your argument and give relevant information to the reader. I also agree with your specific example about celebrities receiving a single story in the media. It is difficult for celebrities to overcome this single story because they are in the public-eye; however, we need to give them empathy for them to be able to do this.

    • Peyton, I liked that you used the example of Bryce Hall and Addison Rae’s relationship to describe the need for empathy. It is important for us to understand that we can not judge individuals based off of a single story we have been told. Showing empathy for Bryce’s relationship will decrease the judgement we have and increase understanding that we do not have the entire story. Overall, I thought your depiction on empathy is a good message for the need of it in everyday relationships.

    • Peyton, very interesting to read and a unique example of the importance of empathy. I think, for me, the best synopsis of the point you were trying to make is your last sentence, nicely done. I agree with how harmful and toxic it can be to be lacking empathy in a relationship. Whether it is from your partner or others relationships are definitely one of the areas where empathy needs to be prominent.
