I think that empathy is feeling how someone is feeling. Like showing or relating an experience that you have personally had. Some people need empathy to show that they have emotions also. You get empathy by having an emotional thought, then you remember that thought and when someone else is having an experience like you had then you can share and maybe make them feel better. I once got hurt on my bike and I didn’t like it. After a couple of years my brother had the same experience and I told him what happened to me and I told him how to fix it. I think that everybody feels empathy for something.
