Empathy vs Sympathy

This video spoke volumes to me.

When someone shares their problem with you, do you feel like you have to give a solution to their problem? I admit, I do. What I'm learning about myself and others, is that a solution isn't always what someone is looking for. They just want to be heard and understood. This video describes, in a fun way, the difference between being sympathetic and empathetic. Here's to being a more empathetic person.
