Sympathy, is giving somebody an excuse for behaving cruelly, that is care-taking not love.
I don’t like sympathy, sympathy is believing that a person has limitations to wellness. To find true sympathy, the word has to change into compassion. One must be honest, something rage blind spots prevent. Being honest means going to Ego jail, soul searching, feeling all the horrible embarrassment of your own actions, and then your awareness, humility and heartfelt wish to become more than this can lead to the gold in the dragon cave — awareness and comfort no matter what.
