Capture Your Grief, October 2015- Day 5, Empathy

Monday, October 05, 2015

Empathy. I believe most of us confuse empathy with sympathy. Sympathy, however, pits us against one another while empathy joins us to one another.

My favorite empathy item isn't an image -- it's a little video which was passed around a few years ago on Facebook, but which remains relevant today.

This little short says more than I ever could, no matter what images I could think up. 

But.... If I had to choose an empathy subject, this is what I would choose. Me in my husband's shoes.

Though not as eloquent, the person I most work on empathy for, is my husband. Because mostly dads get left out of this messy grief thing.
