Empathy

I am able to emphatize with A. I can see the pain the person is going through and wish I could say, dude, people have been there before and in a far worser state. Don't give a damn. But unfortunately the person is oblivious and is bearing the pain. I wish I could console, but I know any amount of sympathy/ empathy/ from a third person will only add to the person's woes. So I am keeping silent. Wish C had more sense and would at least be more sensitive to the feelings of A. 
But C is also like L. Ditto. Similar. But In the end it doesn't even matter. We are what we are irrespective of what we try to do for others.
