The difference between empathy and sympathy

Empathy is hard to do, and I’m almost always terrible at expressing it. I’m that person with an awkwardly timed “I’m sorry to hear that”, the one who resists the urge to find a silver lining because I know that doesn’t help but the silence is so uncomfortable! So I’m learning, and probably always will be. Also, watch Brené Brown’s TED talk on the power of vulnerability.
