Empathy is often defined as the ability to “put oneself into another's shoes”. It's fascinating how diverse and varied other people define empathy. Wikipedia define it as the capability to share and understand another person's emotions and feelings. Miriam-Webster define empathy as the act of understanding, being aware of, beings sensitive to and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts and experience of another, either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner. The Latin word compassio veraque meaning compassion and true, best outline the word empathy. In layman's term it is the overwhelming power to feel another person's emotion as if they are your own.
