A better way to think about “soft skills”

In our Emotion Dynamics Facebook group, we search for images or messages that treat emotions and empathy with respect, but we don’t find many.

So we create our own!

This meme helps us think more clearly about the silly idea that emotional skills are soft skills. As we’ve all seen, when people don’t have emotional skills, they can create the hardest problems there are. Feel free to share this Better Meme.

If you’ve read The Language of Emotions or The Art of Empathy, and you’d like to join our Facebook group, come on over to The Language of Emotions and Empathy group on Facebook.

Anyone who says that emotional skills are soft skills is not paying attention.

Emotional skills are at the center of everything you are: every relationship, every dream, every failure, every triumph, every act of violence, and every act of love.

When you learn the language of emotions, you can change the entire world.
