To me Empathy is when you are able to show someone that you care about them and you can relate to them and how they feel. People need to have empathy because if they don’t have t others won’t have it for them when they need it. You can get it when you treat others with more respect then they had ever had. In the past I was talking to some of my friends and they were talking about how they felt like no one in the world was really caring for them. It made me feel like I was going to lose them to something that I know no one in the world should ever go through. So Ijust had them sit down and talk and cry and talk some more and eventually they started to think that there was accually people in our cold world that had a genune care for them.
