Hi, I'm new here and only very recently discovered that I am an empath. I have had a lifetime of mental health problems and in recent years have found my peace with that and survive. Last year I had some counselling and through that realised a lot of my problems were down to being an introvert and feeling that I didn't fit into the world easily. More exploration of the infj personality has made a lot of things suddenly make sense and I realise I am not ill, I'm an introvert. It was a huge relief to read more and more about what that meant and to realsie there is nothing wrong with me! Further exploration has led to me realising now that I am an empath - sensitive in particular to people's feelings, animals and plants too. I am now starting a new journey to explore what this means and to open new understanding of what it means to be an empath and how do I go forward in life. Looking forward to this.

Welcome home Amelia! I have also struggled in the past and recently realized that all of my "oddities" for a lack of better words was due to my being an empath. I have wondered my entire life why I didn't fit in with most of the world. Now since I understand why, it has made life a lot more bearable. I just wish I would have realized it sooner, but I guess I was not ready. You have a lot of support an understanding here. You will also learn so much as I have, and learn new ways of dealing with your empathness.

Hey Amelia! I suspect a lot of people feel "ill" before they realize they are not and that there are others' who have the same gifts. I am so happy for you to have found out the source so you can embrace your life.
