The Compassion Project Lesson 2
Empathy is when you see someone in a situation (or hear a story) and you can understand what they want, how they might feel, and it may even make your feelings change in response. When you know how others feel, and you understand what they need or want, that could lead to showing compassion. Being able to relate with someone in need increases your desire to give them compassion.
