"Empathy emphasizes understanding, sympathy emphasizes sharing, of another person's feelings and experiences"

It seems very simple at first, but these words are very important, empathy and sympathy. Especially in these days and times where we are becoming so desensitized.

Eventually we will come to the realization that when you stop feeling. You stop existing.

This is something that I am slowly learning to do. open my self to feeling and not leading my self down the path of denial.

It's what alot of us need to do.
