    lol... it can. what is and isn't poetry is a matter of opinion, but that wasn't the purpose I intended for it. By the way, I revised my post a bit (I hope it is more clear now) I am interested to hear your ideas on this perspective.

    I think we are constantly looking for people who are the same in order to validate ourselves. Unfortunately many here are very different. For instance, you and I, Elaur, are quite different. So I can't expect you to validate me by being the same as me.

    So we are all looking for validation through sympathy. And as sympathy means to feel the same as, it only works with people who are the same as us.

    However in contrast to sympathy, empathy validates difference. So empathy rather than sympathy is tailor made for a site like this.

    The only catch is that empathy doesn't come naturally like sympathy. Empathy needs to be learnt and practised.

    And empathy is a bit like learning to ride a bicycle. It can only be learnt experientially and by practice - the same way you practise the scales on a piano.

    But once learnt, empathy can validate difference.
