If you are looking for sympathy, you probably will not find it. And if you do, you should soon realize it was not worth looking for in the first place. Sympathy is negative. It is the act of someone feeling sorry for you or your situation.

When you have had a troubled day, it is far better for you to look for empathy.

The difference in these two words is that with empathy there is an attempt to understand the true feelings of the other person, not just to feel sorry for their situation.
