“Once I chanced upon a mother sobbing in silence as she held her sick child. I stopped what I was doing and instinctively put a hand around the mother’s shoulders to comfort her. In that moment, it felt as though there was a transfer of emotions from the mother to my heart. It was a moment of intense empathy through a nurse’s touch.
A patient once told me, ‘We don’t need your sympathy; we need your empathy, and your healthcare knowledge’.
A simple act of love and a touch of compassion from your heart goes a long way in healing a broken spirit.”
