Empathetic or Sympathetic?

When I was younger – a teenager – I thought that to be sympathetic was an ideal attribute to have. Don’t get me wrong – I still feel it is important – but I have come to the idea that it is kinder to be empathetic. When you are empathetic you’re imagining what it is like to be in another’s place – and considering their feelings.

Remember ‘sympathy is with the brain but empathy is with the heart’.
