An empath knows no limits to what we can and cannot absorb like the sponges we are. Sometime ago, I scared myself silly when I laughed verbatim like this woman on my favorite show Big Brother does. Her laugh is very ultra annoying and to duplicate that unknowingly scared me cuz I didn't know something like that was possible. Like I scanned her traits and picked up something she is known for.
Grammar on the internet is troubling to read because so many people use improper grammar. And this isn't me being a grammar snob, but what I did, which I knew I would never ever in a million trillion years do because it's not how I spell, added another notch to the "OMG" column of I can't believe I just did that. Even on good days, where I may not be tired, low on energy or what have you, I type up an entire paragraph and before I submit it, I proof read and see that I spelled their "there" and too "to". As I said, that's not how I spell. Online or otherwise. However, I am exposed to it everyday and now I'm afraid I've picked up subtle habits of other people. And spelling is so minute. Who would ever think as an empath, you would pick up someone's grammar habits? That's the only explanation I have.
If I can pick up two things such as an annoying laugh and improper grammar usage, it makes me wonder, what else is an empath capable of soaking up over time? When I was new to all this, I was having an identity crisis that my brother Wolf helped me get through cuz I didn't know who I was if I am a person who picks up habits and traits from others. Who am I underneath all that? Will I ever know? I find myself using phrases people from my past have used daily. So even if these people are not my favorite people, I've got a part of them with me always and I DO NOT LIKE THAT.
Now I'm beginning to worry about the future when I grow as an empath and spiritual person. Will I start absorbing sickness and illness from people? To what extent? Will I live with this illness forever or will it eventually fade? I have so many unexplained pains that I deal with. And I'm not a well person by nature. I've got my own issues, but how do I know if it's mine as opposed to someone else's? Right now, my lower right quadrant of my back is in immense pain that came outta nowhere. It's mildly affecting the way I walk. When I walk, I feel it the most. I know my brother deals with back problems that affect his walking and we are connected. I have felt him before. So who knows???
