Empathy means “the identification with or vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of another.” To me, empathy means there’s a point in the conversation where you soften and understand. It’s nicer than sympathy. It’s the soft red bit on the left hand side that does it for me, plus some entirely unintentional heart shapes.
Overall, the effect is rather like the frost you see melting on a cold windowpane.
