Why a problem shared is a problem doubled

3 posts in this topic

Perhaps one of the most defining features of humanity is people's capacity for empathy – the ability to put ourselves in others' shoes.

A new study has added to a growing body of scientific evidence that the human brain is not only hardwired to empathise with others, but does this so strongly that individuals cannot differentiate between what happens to a close friend or family member and themselves.

Way to go, Daily Mail. Encourage people to bottle-up their troubles. That'll help. :(

Good topic! Which I will come back to. I'm interested in what happens when something 'goes wrong' with this process in an individual.
