Just another Question. After taking care of everybody and worring and feeling everybody. Do you wish there was someone there for you ? I do , but I don't wish that on anybody. I never feel totally at ease even after grounding. It's like I'm always waiting on the next crisis or heart break or death or lie. No one ever ask if I'm ok because I make them ok and they don't want to come back down off that cloud. Just an observation

Who takes care of the Empath
Yes, those fair weather friends,I know what has, in the past, slow my progression was the beliefs that I clung to. That "it" was bad. But I'm working though it.Maybe Happiness is just a romantic notion. A sweet jester. When I feel happiness smiling at me I brace for the impact of the next feeling.I have never had clinical depression so I cannot not pretend to know how that feels. Of course , I have been depressed but it's always due to something out of my control but affected me directly. Not by a chemical enbalance. Not saying I'm in balanced but I'm working it.
i don't like relying on people either. I know the overwhelming feelings I see and hear from others and I would not wish that on anybody. Not just anyone can handle it. You know , we are pretty amazing , being able to keep our sanity in the middle of 10 others insanity, at one time.
My animals help a lot. The love without judgment. Their attention is endless and we love each other. It's sad to be judged wrongly. I only have one friend that I talk to about being an Empath and she is possibly one also but not ready to free her mind. My husband has became to think I'm a Buddist or have mental problems. He may by a empath in denial because he is picking up on the changes I have made but does not like them. I guess it's normal for people to be scared of things they don't understand. But if this is my journey , im use to walking alone. Alone and lonely are not the same, not in my world. Thank you so much for your reply
I don't blame you. I'm sure meds help some I guess I just don't won't to be controlled by something or somebody. Not in my nature. I understand there is a need for it in some cases but mine is not a chemical imbalance it's a people imbalance. I try to be careful of the people I let in but one is a narcissist and also my daughter in law (bad combination) so I have to work around her. But I know everyone have problems and the people in my life have small problems but when you put all of their problems in my head at one time, it's gets pretty intense sometimes. Then, I'm also an animal Empath, so I'm saving chipmunks from cats, Chickens from Hawks and worrying about my dogs, they all have personalities , then I got that thing going on with wooded areas and spirits that I can learn nothing about. So , yeah I have a fulfilling life.I have read a lot on her about people taking meds because people think their crazy, even some hospitalized for it. why can't people just takes us as we are. It's all of their drama that takes there anyway.Thank you for replying. At least I know I'm not the only one.
I don't think my chances of finding a spiritual director around in such a ruel area as I live in, is slim to none. I would be nice though, to have someone like that to help me advance and or find some peace on my journey . There is so much to know with little resources. Thank you
