Empathy is a very misunderstood concept in society. Empathy is often conflated with pity, compassion, and sympathy. It is none of these.

Empathy is not an emotion. Empathy is an ability to intellectually place oneself in the context of another, to attempt to understand their motivations, based on the specific set of circumstances and actions within said context.

Empathy can sense moral bankruptcy. Empathy can sense the emptiness within a psychopath. Empathy can sense nefarious motives. Empathy does not discriminate.

We need more of this — genuine empathy — not less.
