A term most likely evolved from the word "Sympathy," it's used to described the action of reading, listening, or watching things meant to make a person feel a certain emotion, particularly sadness. Most commonly, creating a playlist of songs you know will make you cry, and then listening to it until you're a sobbing wreck.
Person: "Sometimes, I think the only way I can feel things anymore is by symping."

Person 1: "Yeah, I just listened to sad songs until I cried myself to sleep."
Person 2: "Oh, so you mean you were symping?"

Person 1: "You mean people make playlist specifically to feel sad? I don't do that."
Person 2: "What do you mean? EVERYONE has a symp list."
