No one is made an empath, its already part of you via Source. Most people are just so caught up in the rat-race that they do not pay any attention. Empaths do and why they seem a bit overbearing because they notice way more than most. In myself it manifests as perceived stubbornness. But I now better.
Hmmm, if that's true, then I'm glad I'm not alone! I don't know what words people say about me behind my back, but I'm guessing that "overbearing" could be one of them. Andobnoxious, and arrogant, and opinionated. Which is weird, because when I was young, people told me I was too shy and to speak up andnot act "snotty".
Sometimes I feel like I know something that I feel I must get across to other people if I only try hard enough. I probably seem like I'm trying to pound things into people's heads, which I probably am.Sometimes it's something personal, but it could just as easily be something about the state of the world.I'm also very unwavering in my opinions, especially in middle age.
Your mother might be an empath too, which would make her unsatisfied about a lot of things. I know I'm a strong empath, but I don't feel like a warm, sweet, ethereal being, the way people seem to think we are. I'm quite ornery, anti-social, and stubborn. Maybe those are the roots of enlightened empathy? I'm just a beginner, after all. Who knows what will sprout from those roots?
Thank you so much for all your responses! I really do appreciate a helpful discussion always! I definitely need to remain true to myself, but I can turn the volume down a little to make my more delicate friends comfortable with coming to me once more
