Well, you will definitely need to join an least one empath community. If you can find one locally, you're lucky! But keep in contact with us and other websites that address this topic. I think a lot of people are just finding out about themselves. I didn't realize I was until this year. You will meet people who will nod and smile, or roll their eyes, but a lot of them will want to talk about it, and be drawn to you, because they know inside that you're right.
Most of us are empaths, if not all of us. You're not alone.
