Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

Empathy is rare.

Sympathy, for similar personal experiences, or what is known personally, can occur. And many confuse that with empathy, or compassion.

Compassion, is when you have empathy and you feel driven to act and do something to help. Not just voice an opinion, or stick a quote on social media, or act out of selfish, self serving needs – none of that is compassion.

Some don’t even have sympathy, which is increasing in a society full of apathy, narcissism, sociopaths, bullying, cyber bullying, hating on people, using people, spiritual abuse, feeling entitled to hurt others for a myriad of reasons, lack of charity, lack of drive to help those in need.
