Are you an empath living with another empath?

That's funny, I believe both my kids are empaths, but my son is more like me. We have a very strong connection anyway, but sometimes he feels my pain and he is 6. His pain is more dramatic and mine is physical. So I feel his drama stuff and he feels my physical stuff - I try to shield my stuff more after I realized what was happening.
I realized the same thing you did one day, except we don't yell we cry
Loved the way you expressed it
Hi Jar of Clay, that is very interesting and very well put. I know I am surrounded by family that are also empaths although in my case my brother is the only one that has awakened and now that you mention it that is how we are too, The rest of them have not became aware of what they are yet so it is not quire so volatile. Thank you for the post.

Well I spoke too soon. I am trying to recover from a migraine and my son has started complaining of a headache. Guess I need to work on shielding better
Sometimes I just want to quit everything and run far far away into the woods, where there is no noise and only the animals and plants to talk to.But I love my family too much. Oh well I'll be a hermit later
I would suggest writing. If it is an emotional issue it helps me to write it. That way I can read it myself first and correct things before they are said. Also it allows you to adjust tone or words that might come across wrong. Whether you text, email or use plain old paper it helps to not have so many words to take back. It also gives the other person time to think and respond without the heat of the moment in the way as you would have in a face to face talk.
I have always felt like a mirror. I reflect back what emotions I get but amplified with my own. I absolutely understand what you are saying. The hard part is fixing it or getting control over it.
