Empathy is a strange and illusive creature.
It’s not something everyone is born with,
Sometimes we learn it the hard way.
Pain is a good teacher.
Empathy is not sympathy.
We don’t want you to feel bad for us,
we just want you to feel us.
In turn, we will feel you.
Empathy is part of compassion.
Opening your heart to another,
walking a mile in their shoes,
looking outside yourself.
Empathy is a gift.
For those who experience it,
Empathy is a strange and illusive creature
