a word for when someone becomes emotionally involved with what's happening. It's a word close to empathy, for example, when someone is telling a really touching story and it's like you're feeling what's like under their skin.

It doesn't mean to be sorry, but when something someone says/does etc. gets and holds onto you, and you feel attached to it
