Hey Secret Blossom,
I am new to the site and the term called empath as well. However, I've always known how I am, just didn't know it had a name lol. I was pleasantly suprised to find others share this because it makes me feel part of something instead of just different.
Also, to me there is so much more than feeling other's feelings-it is the intuition in many situations. The ability to read people-I guess that is feeling but it's not like you just feel their emotions per sey, you feel their intentions/thoughts. Also a heightened understanding of people's actions/behaviors that others don't have. That's what its like to me
