This is amazing!
I am greatly empathetic and empathy being the main reason for generating this pagethis post is a MUST!
So many times people say "Yeah, i totally understand how you feel"
"Oh yes, the same happened to me"
"I know what you mean" I assure you that these words are hollow.
Not because they are lying; because they are unable to ACTUALLY understand. They understand the dilemma; perhaps not the extent and your personal perception of it.
Sympathy is when you grasp the situation and you naturally have emotions thus it happens to stir your emotions and you say things or do things that show your remorse.
Empathy is different. It makes you literally step out of your shoes, walk over to the other person's position and fit yourself into THEIR shoes.
Empathy is not as hollow as mere understanding. From the fact that you are able to separate yourself completely and become the other person for that moment and not only understand their problem but know/feel how they feel, how they experience it, the intensity, their reaction and their combating response in order to deal with it. You experience their perception and reaction as well.
It's an OVERALL understanding which is easily misunderstood.
Such people who are greatly empathetic are rare because we live in a narcissistic world.
It's a great gift yet a great curse.
Try your best to empathise with those around you. It makes a difference to have someone who actually understands youand not just your problems.
Empathy will make another person feel a little more loved and cared for - it is preached greatly in ISLAM. Let's practice it and try our bit of improving the world positively today.
