Sympathy, Empathy, Apathy, and BACON!

At home, in the office, or any situation you find yourself in, life can be overwhelming. It’s filled with so much hate, hurt, and hardship. Because of that, so many are looking for help, healing, and to be heard. None of us can be an endless supply of support, but when we are needed, we must take a close look at what we can offer.

  • SYMPATHY is when you SHARE the feelings of another person; we see and acknowledge what they are going through. We feel sorry for them.

  • EMPATHY is when you UNDERSTAND the feelings of another person; we put ourselves in their shoes.

  • APATHY is when we show an ABSENCE of passion for another person; we are indifferent to their plight.

Although true happiness comes from being in the service of others, offering sympathy and empathy may not always be the best response.


In an emergency, on an airplane, you must put your mask on first before attempting to help others. The same is true is almost every aspect of your day to day.



Before you offer a shoulder to lean on…

B – Balance your reactions. You cannot be all things for all people.

A – Ask yourself what YOU/THEY need. Don’t offer the wrong response.

C – Compassion is the doing and Pathos is the feeling. Keep a safe distance.

O – Other perspectives help us Grow. Empathy is the fast-track to personal growth.

N – Necessity of Pathos. It's important for us to be able to feel what other people feel, care about their well-being, and act with compassion. This helps us get along with each other, work better, and thrive as a society.


We are all needed and have a need to be needed!
