Empathy - Rishona Chopra
We often misunderstand Empathy and Sympathy. Sympathy is when we feel pity for someone, while Empathy is feeling what the other person thinks and helping them out. If your friend won a basketball match, you can understand his feelings and be happy for him and celebrate his happiness. Even if you hate basketball, after being happy for him and by making him happy, you feel good too. This is where Empathy connects with Making Others Happy.
The above picture shows how two people can connect and understand each other as one. This is all because of Empathy.
Here is a poem I wrote on Empathy:
Empathy is something so strong,
It senses when something is wrong.
It connects us together,
And we become as calm as the weather!
I know how you feel,
And we can together heal.
I feel your pleasure and pain,
But empathy is a feeling, and it's hard to explain.
It might be a bit difficult,
but it's nothing different.
Everyone should understand it,
at least a little bit!!
