Empathy VS Sympathy

I dreaded taking my Helping Children Cope with Stress Module during my Bachelor of Science degree course so much I didn’t do my assignments. Yet this was the one module I learnt the most, in terms of becoming an emotionally better person.
I once commented that ‘sympathize’ should be a banned word because there’s no one else who will ever know EXACTLY how you feel about what you’re going through.
Empathy VS Sympathy. I learnt this distinguished difference from Paul Thayer, our lecturer for that module.
