What do you feel?
I kind of just found out. It's mostly been negative. I pick up all kinds of bad energy from around me and I think it's my own thoughts. I've always been a "hider" to escape these feelings. But I pick up negative energy from the internet too. I rarely pick up positive energy! I'm still working on this, obviously.
Answers of who I really am.
My whole life I've known myself to be different (weird, as my mother would call it). I've had visions, clairvoyance since I was young, physical ailments, and it was all suppressed by family (unknowing to them). Once I hit 30, these gifts heightened and totally shook up my world.
A couple months ago, the moment the word "empath" and its definition crossed my ears - I had no idea what it all meant - but, knew it was significant when it settled the "I'm weird" ball of confusion I've felt since I was young. Something I knew nothing about made complete sense tome. And am just now learning more.
Figuring out that I'm an empath saved my sanity. And that's a beautiful thing.
