Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. It is the experience of understanding another person's condition from their perspective. As a sensitive person, I view empathy and sensitivity as the glue that holds together my relationships. This sensitivity can be viewed as a strength rather than a weakness.
No person has the right to condemn you on how you repair your heart or how long you choose to grieve, because no one knows how much your hurting. Recovering takes time & everyone heals at his or her own pace.
