Empathy is the ability to feel how others feel because you have been through the same or similar experience. I believe that people need empathy, without empathy there would be less trust, people’s friendships would be less strong. You feel a connection with someone that has been through the same thing and it can create really strong friendships.
There is this girl who moved to PG recently and we became friends, but after a while we opened up to each other about our experiences and it turns out we both have moved around a billion times. Moving kinda sucks and so we felt empathy towards each other and are best friends now. I have never met anyone who has moved as much as me and it’s really nice to have someone so close to me that knows what i’m going through. If it weren’t for her i’d feel so lonely.
