Empathy is to share the feelings of another and being able to understand those feelings. People do need it. They need someone to give them empathy, because they need to feel like they aren’t the only ones feeling that way. I think everyone has empathy to give it’s just whether or not they want to give it to others. People should bother to give it to others , because it makes people happy knowing that they share those feeling as well as others. One time my neighbor was so excited that she got a car she came over to tell me, and I didn’t exactly give her the empathy she needed, because right when she told me and I didn’t show her empathy her mood died and she wasn’t excited as much as she was earlier. That time I should of showed empathy, but I didn’t.
