So it's been a while since I ahev been on this site. Last time I was here I was just a kid trying to survive high school and now 5 years later I'm just trying to survive life. Since I've been an empath my whole life I have never known what it is like to be normal... I have gotten decent at shutting people out so I can do my job but I still pick up on things if I need to or want. Even though I sometimes think I have a handle on everything, being an empath still gets to me, I often find my shoulders hurting as I try to block everyone out... Anyways to keep this short, I came back to see if I can get a better grasp on my empath abilities without shutting out the world.
