Only in the past few years have I known that I am an empath, and only recently have I begun the arduous psychological changes that happen at sixteen. Despite my empathetic understanding of the world, I feel lost among it. I feel unable to show my true self in a hostile shifting environment. A shared distaste among empaths, unauthentic people make me crazy. And now feel like I'm one of those people, surrounded by those people. No one in high school knows a damn thing about anything, and I feel alone. Being a guy, certain things are expected of me that are contrary to my nature. Being in touch with your emotions is more of a hindrance than anything right now. But I can't help it. I absorb all the emotional baggage of twenty teenagers in one room. I just want to hide in a corner and never leave it's so terrible. Well to conclude, I would love some advice on this. I'm curious to know how other empaths got through school.
