I just joined The Empath Community. Nice to find this website and be able to explore all that you have to offer!
I discovered that I was an Empath in 2003 after attending a lecture given by a psychic. It was an eye-opening and emotional experience for me. It took me some time to find Elaine Aron, take her test, read her books and begin to get insight into who I am, how to protect myself and how to nurture myself.
I can't say that I have it all figured out, but I am further along now than I was before I learned that I am Empath. Having self-acceptance, and self-love for this gift has made my life a little easier in my day to day living.
I am a work in progress when it comes to using my gift to be a light to others.
I look forward to reading all you have to share.
Many blessings to all in this community.
