The ability to empathize with others can be so magical. And to not have this ability can be so confusing. If someone cries, and I care about that person, I will cry with that person. Eventhough you're not going through that same situation and even if you have never experienced feeling that way yourself, you can still feel the same way the other is feeling. And it's such a logical reaction, such an automatic reaction. When someone does not empathize, it is somehow shocking. We get angry, we go ballistic.
