Empathy vs Sympathy - Difference and Comparison | Diffen

Either one is important.

Empathy is good, if it's real. Too many people confuse the two.

Agreed.

I have empathy for those who try to succeed who, despite the obstacles placed in their path, fail. Because I have experienced failure.

But I have little sympathy for those who don't try yet expect others to pickup the tab for their existence. Because I have experienced first hand, that drain on our resources.
