Neuroscientists Confirm That Our Loved Ones Become Ourselves

Good morning!

Today is a new week! I would like to share with you an article from Psychology Today entitled, 'Neuroscientists Confirm That Our Loved Ones Become Ourselves.' The article talks about how the human brain groups people into friends/people we know versus strangers. Studies showed that if a friend is under threat, it becomes the same as if we ourselves are under threat. We can understand the pain or difficulty they may be going through in the same way we understand our own pain." It also revealed how we don't feel anything in comparison to the strangers, or unfamiliar faces.

The article also talks about some reasons why we made want to hurt the ones we love and strategies for coping when they hurt us.
