The word pathetic is used as an adjective and the meaning it conveys is that of a phenomenon that makes you feel sad. The following sentence can make the meaning of the term quite clear: The pathetic condition he lives in is his own creation but whenever I see him in this ways it hurts me.
The above-mentioned sentence says that a person is living in a very bad condition and his condition makes the person who is making the statement feel very bad.

Sometimes the word is also being used to describe a weak and unsuccessful man but this use of the term is always being used in a disapproving manner and mostly people laugh about him. The synonymous term that you can use for the word in this context is feeble.
