Hello everyone I am wondering if anyone here can relate to being a empath.

      Yes I am an empath and it is an actual thing for those that think otherwise you are entitled to your opinion on this subject but please be aware and respectful of those that disagree with you.

      Both me and my bf are super empathetic. It lead to vicious cycles of high emotions being exchanged by the 2 of us. But we've learned sometimes we just gotta talk it out. A room of people will usually leave me feeling overwhelmed and anxious and sometimes I just need some time alone. I'm learning not to blame myself for everyone's problems but that's still a work in progress. Also having to deal with everyone's emotions usually causes physical pain with myself because it effects my IBS. But I've learned to recognize the symptoms and excuse myself before things get to intense. Most of the time.

      Absolutely can relate. It’s exhausting at times

      There are people who are intuitive and can read a room… maybe they are not “true” empaths, but then there are REAL empaths, and there are many different kinds. I am one and so is my mum. I can walk into an empty house and “feel” the energy of those that once lived there. I only learned the term “empath” (not confused w/ empathy) over a year ago. Still learning to shield myself and protect…

      Embrace it and find more groups to belong to. You'll feel the overwhelming gratitude for this gift

      I am for sure. I can sense the energy of a room often when I walk in. I can feel others emotions, it's not always a blessing, but it's how I've always been.

        @AutumnRaineSkye you got that right. I really don't like being one but as I have heard before it is a blessing and a curse

      Guys- having empathy is not a special personality trait. Sometimes, being extra aware of others' feelings etc (which honestly a lot of times is just ✨projection✨ bc none of us are mind readers... No matter how many crystals you have or how many🍄🍄 you ate) is just a symptom of ✳️childhood trauma✳️ Are you extra aware when there is tension in a room or someone seems slightly irritated? Congratulations- you have a seat in Adult Children of Alcoholics (which also includes the text 'and dysfunctional families') They talk specifically about this.

        @OurLadyOfChaos ETA TL;DR often 'empaths' are very aware of others' emotions bc as a child they were made to feel responsible for others' moods, feelings, and actions. Parent is pissed? It's your fault. Disappointed? Your fault. Sad? It was you. Sibling upset? You did it. Someone (you or sibling or parent) gets beat? You had a hand in it somewhere. *None of this is true but this is how children raised in dysfunctional households often felt. So a person becomes acutely watchful and walks on eggshells thinking they are somehow responsible for the feelings and actions of others.

          @OurLadyOfChaos there are many different beliefs on what an empath is and where it comes from. What you said makes a lot of sense. However, I am not convinced that it is the only way a person becomes an empath. My granddaughter is one and unless it set in at the age of 2, she doesn't fit your explanation.

          @OurLadyOfChaos yes. Yes. Yes. Yes!

      I can relate! Super sensitive to others feelings and energy or auras. Although I have not learned enough about auras or honed my skills enough to actually see them. I can definitely feel them though. Sometimes so much that I mimic the feeling or behavior of others.

      I can relate. There are times I feel it's a blessing and a curse. My downside is I'm not sensitive to one but all 3 and absorb certain low level illnesses from others
