Empathy is a very curious thing. Sympathy- a feeling of understanding or appreciating the life experiences of another individual- this is a very human quality. Sympathy is the ability of one individual to look at another, and see a mirror reflection. Empathy, is not simply understanding. Empathy is the embodiment of another’s life experience– looking at a mirror and stepping through to the other side. Empathy is not a human trait; it is a borrowed peculiarity from something far more divine.
