Re: Poll: Has your study of aikido made you more empathetic?
While in that case, I would say I believe I have always been empathetic to some extent, but Aikido defently had to help me be very empathetic now. I feel that I care alot more about others then I ever did before joining. As for telling if it has helped me or if it is from just living over time I can't say for sure. However I would say if it wasent for Aikido I would i'd most likely be dead by now anyways, and in that case I wouldent be showing any improved empathey.
