why I joined this network

There are many on this site that are still having trouble coping with their abilities so may not be enthusiastic about it. As for myself, I don't consider myself special, I'm just me and this is the way I've always been so I have no reason to be excited, it's like someone telling me that I should be excited about the color of my hair; it's just me.
There are those that see this gift as making them special from others, but this attitude can lead to creating a separation between ourselves and everyone else. We are all divine beings and we are all given gifts and talents-not just empath or psychic gifts. Yes we are here to help each other but when we recognize that the person in front of us is no different than ourself, then we truly can hep the other person.
As an empath, in the past few weeks, I have been in random turmoil, dealing with another empath that lives close to me who is negative, I have been harassed by this person. I am also dealing with another aspect of my gifts that is spiritual, I have been attacked numerous times, so I don't post much right now because I would basically be venting and I do not wish to do that. I don't want everything I post to come across as negative, that's not me, I am a positive person. With everything that is going on in the world at the moment, especially for the country that I live, it's particular hard. No matter how I feel personally I get everyone's feelings. I guess what I am saying is I have understanding for those having a hard time. I am enthusiastic about my gift, it excites me to think of all the things I can do and all the people I will be able to help but it is difficult when times are hard. One thing that normal people do not have for empaths is patience but we need to be patient with each other.
