This video touched me and finally described the difference between Sympathy and Empathy that I understood. It explains why when I tell my problems to some folks I feel worse and to others I don’t feel as heavy. Because the connection between me and the person I am telling lifts the “I am so alone” feeling out of my heart just a bit.
Empathy from the people I met at the church now attend is the reason I have started to know peace in my life.
This man from Nazareth the slum of the ancient arab world who was a born of the dirty cousin of King David totally empathise with me. People don’t talk the way he did and mean it usually. There is no way I or anyone deserves a friend like the way he a friend to everyone. This may sound strange but sometimes I think of him the same way I think of Dr Who because of how much they both love humanity even with all of it’s flaws. Both work really hard and in strange confusing ways and achieve the unexpected and needed.
So my friends I don’t know what your pain is but I see that it’s there and I am just glad you share a few moments on this blog and we can connect. Thank you for reading and I am always happy when I have written something that finds a connection with others.
Please have an amazing day!
