How Can I Develop Empathy?

Stefan Molyneux discusses acting on emotions, staying away from people who push the pain button and offers suggestions on how empathy can be further developed in adulthood.

Listener Question: I’ve noticed that my empathy has been growing as I’ve have been becoming aware of how sad and destructive situations can be for people, or, as I understand what is abusive for people and how these abuses effect a person, I empathize with others and have compassion for them. Given that learning empathy is about as hard as learning Japanese, any help would be greatly appreciated. Am I doing it right? and what other tools can you suggest to help develop empathy?
