empathy vs sympathy

The power of empathy is so important, especially in todays society where people are so self involved even when they don’t realise it themselves. i never fully understood the difference of empathy and sympathy about 2 years ago, which seems strange to me because they are so¬†different and so important yet sound so similar. maybe this video will help you think, maybe it won’t affect you in anyway or maybe you know the difference already, which is likely. either way, i hope you take something away from it.
