Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

It is all the time, sometimes and rarely ever. If so do you know why you lack empathy? What ways do you try to empathize?

I empathize, but if there has been dishonesty before I can't, esp not for the ex.

I don't lack empathy. I empathize too much.

i do lack sympathy/empahty for most people, even my kids!  I really dont care if they cry or i tell them to "get over it", if they cry about somethin and i dont see blood.  I do believe most people in the world are "whiners" and i cant stand listening to them, so i tend not to care much.

My level of sympathy is usually higher but I empathize well in certain situations. It's often to my detriment, though; if I feel I relate to another's circumstance, I do less "common sense" thinking/helping than emotional. I react and reach out with more of a "I want to help regardless" that lacks logistics.
