Empathy & Sympathy- Why are some people so ignorant?

I’m sickened by the sheer volume of people who cannot show empathy towards other people little alone sympathy.

Have you ever put yourself in someone else’s shoes and really thought before  you replied something that was so cold hearted and harsh.

Real empathy is about being able to feel someone else’s pain. I cannot imagine going through life without the ability to show both  empathy and sensitivity.

Sometimes in life you have to suspend your own opinions and be able to both empathize and sympathize with the pain that someone else is going through.

Are you able to show empathy?

I’m not talking about sympathy here where you sympathize with another’s pain, but actually empathy, when you feel their pain for you have put yourself in their shoes.
