Sympathy is nice – but Empathy is the key

 

Feeling sympathy for someone often is simply not enough. Dr. Brené Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work, gives some very useful insights into the difference between sympathy and empathy in a short film, pointing out that empathy is way more meaningful.

She also gave an entire lecture about The Power of Empathy and a very popular TEDx Talk on The Power of Vulnerability.
