First off, I'm new here. This is my first post- I've recently discovered I'm an Empath, and am glad I found this website!
Second, there's something I haven't really found more of, so I'm not sure it has to do with being an Empath- a lot of times, I feel hated or that I'm a nuisance to people I'm close to. Sometimes I'll look at tiny tiny details, such as a short response to a Facebook message, in place of a long one, or maybe a slight change in ways they talk when around me, which could chalk up to anything, (tiredness, other aggravating things in their life, etc.) but my first instinct is to say to myself, "I did something wrong. What was it?" I often find myself asking "What's wrong?" or more specifically, "Did I do something wrong?". Whenever my boyfriend has a serious tone when he says he needs to tell me something, I automatically think he's suddenly changed his mind about everything and wants to break up. If I do obviously say/do something that annoyed someone, even after apologizing (ten million times, may I add...) and we move on like nothing happened, I still find myself dwelling on it and that moment of pure misery.
This has been happening for a few years now. I don't know if it has anything to do with being an Empath, but I feel asking would be a good way to see if it's a common trait.
