Yes and no. There comes a point where you learn to sadly pity them.

The good thing about being an empath is that we can also spot the self pity fakers too.
[@814069,Portlander] Ah true. Those with victim syndrome.
Portlander · 51-55, T
[@1181120,Collectivefragment] Exactly, they want a pity party, they're def going to get pity.

FUN FACT #2 - 95% OF PEOPLE CAN'T EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EMPATHY AND SYMPATHY WITHOUT LOOKING IT UP.

You exercise tough love and let life slap them around a bit.
[@1139592,EmperorOfIceCream] Yep. Like another post I saw - "harden the f**k up". Lol.
And it can turn into a form of self centered martrydom.
