The individualist who is only able to empathize with the fortunes of others in as much as they resemble his, or her, own is seeking nothing more than validation. He, or she, seeks the validating experiences of others because he, or she, lacks confidence in oneself. In other words, one seeks that which he, or she, does not have.

The sympathizer who empathizes with those of a different lot, whether perceived as fortunate or not, seeks to validate the experiences of others. He, or she, does not in this regard need validation and from a place of self-approval approves the lives of others.

Have you ever considered therapy? Not giving, getting.

No. But, do know a good therapist?
