I feel my purpose on this earth is to educate those like myself who are NOT in the know about who they are. This comes as a sidebar conversation with them, but not telling them just to tell them, oh hey, you're an empath. But for those who are struggling with their lives, I feel I should step in and spread some light their way, even if it means awakening who they are.
But, what I struggle with is, is it my business to tell them what they are, even if they are living happy lives and I just happen to feel how they feel like me? I have this one friend and, sadly, he is a hot mess. He focuses SO much on all the negative and refuses to see the positive in anything. Every post is SMDH and FML. It's gotten to the point where I just am tired of his constant whining. But, I do care about him enough to want to be there for him and listen to why he feels the way he does and to show him things could be much worse and that he should enjoy life, no matter what you are going through.
He spends so much of his existence being envious and jealous of the luxuries his friends have. Now, I remember the day I was new to Facebook and wanted to add some of my Myspace friends on Facebook. Kevin was a random guy from one of my groups who I wanted to keep close. Of course, back then, I didn't know why I wanted him close to me. Now I do. Even if I feel this is my purpose in this life to help awaken those who are struggling with who they are, is it my business to do that? Do I have the right?
I cannot tell you how many people feel like I do. I observe them like a hawk, watching their behavioral patterns, analyzing their lives. If they are spiritual and happy or if they are lacking in faith and incredibly sad. There's always a contrast between these two types of empaths who I categorize as Spiritually Awakened(May or may not know they are different, but they live an average happy lifestyle and don't focus on the negative) and Lacking in Faith(they don't believe in themselves or see the small blessings in life and only focus on the negative everyday of their lives, they may also be struggling with the feelings they get around people and just don't know how to process it.
