Examples of pitying in a Sentence

  1. Girija Srinivas:

    I don’t like anyone pitying me, I have shown everyone what my capabilities are, my mother helps me with eating and other normal things. But while I’m painting and drawing, I need nobody’s help. I do it myself.

  2. David Pilgrim:

    Compassion is not pity, not even empathetic pity. There is arrogance and haughty pride in pitying others. Compassion is when we are confronted with another’s suffering and we suffer with them. Their pain is ours. We are motivated to relieve their suffering. When we feel true compassion we help those who suffer, not as a cathartic release, but because it breaks our heart that they are hurting. I have not always known or believed these things, but I am thankful that I do now.
