{Watch This} Empathy verses sympathy

empathy_vs_sympathy-580x275

A gorgeous person I know recently shared this beautiful short video that really contains one of the most important messages you will hear.

The ongoing battle of empathy verses sympathy is remarkably difficult to break, but really, your reaction to another’s situation can make the biggest of differences.

I, myself am guilty of ‘silver lining things’ that are tough, hard or difficult to discuss. The beauty about this film is that it shows the importance of creating a genuine empathetic connection with another person.

Please, for the sake of every other person that you share this world with, take the time to watch this video.
