Being empathetic is a gift. To truly be able to feel how another person is feeling is not something that everyone can do. To expect other people to be empathetic back towards you is not a fair judgment to place on others.

Love, on the other hand, can be felt by all. When we share our love, no matter how small, the recipient can either accept it or not - leaving us without a reciprocation of that love. It's when that person embraces our love that we feel acceptance. We don't even need for that person to love us back the way we love them. It's enough to know, they have accepted us.
