Sharp - Retroactive empathy

When I was young I had a ton of respect for my father who endured more than 40 years of rheumatoid arthritis. However, the first time I got hit with gout (a form of arthritis) I looked up to heaven and said, “Dad, you are even more amazing than I knew.”

I call this retroactive empathy.
