Welcome. Glad that you have arrived.
The first thing you need to do is take the Empath Survival program. It will teach you how to protect yourself and it gives lots of good pointers on how to survive as an Empath.
Next, be kind to self. As much as it is a relief to finally figure out that there is a name to what/who you are and that there are people out there like you, it can be overwhelming. Take it slow and remind yourself to love yourself. We Empaths get so caught up in helping others that we forget that we need loving, too!
Sending you lots of love and courage to venture this new life.
