I would love to go back and see that younger version of myself and “his” priorities. 1,032 more words

Empathy and Sympathy? What's the Difference?

Both empathy and sympathy are feelings concerning other people.

Sympathy is literally “feeling with” – compassion or commiseration with another person. Empathy, by contrast, is literally “feeling into” – the ability to project one’s personality into another person and more fully understand that person. 153 more words
