E m p a t h y E x e r c i s e | 1 One situation in my life, which I have made an impulsive decision, is with my friend’s girlfriend. My primary impression of her was negative.

My friend always talked about her in a negative way, which aggravated me to create negative judgments about her additionally. Several months after I had met her, my friend confessed that he had been unfaithful to her in the very beginning of their relationship and she had found out about what happened.
