In general, sympathy links one up energetically with others, while compassion doesn't. Sympathy is from the lower emotional body, while compassion is from the higher feeling body. Compassion is of higher vibrational frequency than sympathy. Comparing empathy with sympathy and compassion is almost like comparing apples and oranges. It's more about the level of integrity of the energy bodies/auric egg, etc. One's degree of empathy can be measured using the scale of 1-100. Too much empathy can be detrimental to one's wellbeing, and there are ways to decrease it to a manageable level.
When I want to dig deeper into the meaning of words, I go to the dictionary--not that I consider the dictionary the ultimate source; it’s just part of the puzzle. My dictionary (book) has a definition of empathy as: "the capacity for participation in another's feelings and ideas." I think you'll agree that feeling the feelings of others isn't conducive to wellbeing. It causes a linkup which will continue to expose one person to the suffering of another suffering unless the linkup is dissolved. Many empaths are walking around with numerous of these connections. Compassion is defined as: "sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it." At first glance, this seems very similar to the definition of empathy. However, the key word is this definition of compassion is "consciousness." In other words, it is not a physical thing but more a mental thing. Empathy is more a physical thing.
One definition of sympathy (and there are a large number of them) is: "the act or capacity of entering into or sharing the feelings or interests of another." Here's another: "an affinity, association, or relationship between persons or things wherein whatever affects one similarly affects the other." We don't want what is negatively affecting others to affect us the same or similarly. Compassion is the ideal. There are subtle differences in words.
I Am [your name], and I give thanks that I Am ascending into compassion and leaving sympathy behind—now. Or, I Am [your name], and I give thanks that I Am ascending out of sympathy and into compassion—now.
