Empathy Vs Sympathy – Did you know?

We all must have heard the word Empathy, sounds very similar to Sympathy which we as humans always are good at getting for ourselves and giving it to others around us. But the difference among these words are miles apart from beyond those three alphabets Em to Sym!  :)

Empathy as per the dictionary definition means, “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another” whereas, Sympathy means “feelings of pity and sorrow for someone else’s misfortune.” .

To describe the difference beyond words i am gonna share a video today which i happen to come across recently on YouTube. I think there is lot to learn from this big internet gift called YouTube beyond watching videos. You can learn so many things from people all around the world. And similarly sometimes, Blogging is all about sharing stuff not necessarily what one thinks but also what someone else thinks or knows that could help everyone.. isn’t it???

P.S – they also have many such videos and are worth watching
