Empathy Cards (Canvas)


Now instead of sending sympathy cards, you can offer your empathy with these beautiful new cards written by Dr. Wolfelt. Where sympathy is passive pity, empathy strives to actively engage and connect. Sympathy is “feeling for,” while empathy is “feeling with.”

The Empathy Cards come packaged with a tip sheet for the card giver that explains the difference between sympathy and empathy and lists ideas for extending empathy to a friend or family member who is grieving. Each card has room for a brief handwritten message below the printed text.

Sample message (5 total):

Front: You are on a difficult journey. I cannot carry your load, but I can walk alongside you and hold out my hand.

Inside: Whenever I can be there in person, I will. In all other moments, know that I am thinking about you and am there in spirit.
