Empathy vs. Sympathy: What Makes Something Better is Connection

Share:
What is the difference between empathy and sympathy? I never really knew until I watched this video by Dr Brené Brown. Recognizing emotion in other people is not as easy as it seems! I love her definition of empathy: "Empathy is a choice, and it's a vulnerable choice because in order to connect with you, I have to connect with something in myself that knows that feeling." I also liked that the lack of words can actually be ok: "The truth is, rarely can a response make something better — what makes something better is connection."
