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.
