The Difference Between Sympathy, Empathy and Compassion: If someone was stuck in a quagmire: Sympathy would be: sitting on the side, feeling sorry for them. Empathy would be: getting into the quagmire with them, and trying to find a way out for both of you. Compassion would be: keeping your own feet on solid ground and staying in a state of love while you reach out a hand or branch to help them to get out.
