Ask Alexa: Is empathy a good thing?

Alexa: Is empathy a good thing?

There is a difference between sympathy and empathy and since we are talking about empathy it should be said that joining with a person's weaknesses, deficits, problems, and victimization is not helpful and actually can reinforce their problems rather than identify and utilize their strengths.

Alexa: Did you hear what the son said to his father in Nepal when the father asked the son if he wanted to learn how to guide climbers up Mount Everest?

I believe he said, "Sure, Pa."
