LET EMPATHY BE YOUR TRAIT

“Feeling of empathy touches end number of hearts than the feeling of sympathy.”

I’m sure you are thinking what I’m trying to put forth today which is going to make you think, smile and spend a day with the utmost satisfaction. We help most of the people around us in need but have we seriously analysed what makes us reach out to them. It’s an urge or instinct or some kind of craving for a societal recognition. Most of the times it’s our instinct that asks us to reach out to someone. That’s why we humans differ from animals, we can think and react. Not all times we reach out to help for our inner happiness for there are times when we do it to pacify our personal needs.

We need to treat people with empathy and not sympathy. Sympathy is inbuilt in all of us, empathy is the attribute which says you really have a heart.  A simple but thought provoking instance in the morning rush hour – We find children trying to go across the road to reach their school on the other side, there’s no zebra crossing. What do we do?  We are getting late, we walk off or as we walk, hold hands of one or two kids and go across the road.  We will notice a priceless smile. Small reactions can have a great impact on someone. Above of all, we will understand the real purport of our existence. So go ahead and reach out to someone and celebrate life.
