Hi I am Alexandeer but i changed my nickname and account. i dont know how tobegin but i think..... i can't think of anyone without picking up from them i don't know if it is normal for an emath to be this way. ?i had/n't had a girfriend for a long time this overdo... so thi i didn;t know i am an empath for 3-4 years and i thought i was crazy i was blamed to be crazy from my parents because i wasn't feeling allright and with the time i realized that i feel other people emotions and i know now my crazyness is just something i did not understand and i wanna say that when i realized i can feel other people's emotions i motivated myself to change the world with tihis ability so now when i go to facebook and i open the chat i feel everybody just looking at their pictures and this is scary. i isolated myself because of my "craziness" and now i don't know how to get back to life. most of all my question is how to realx my ability i try to low down the button but it doesn't work reaaly well for me. i think i;m kinda of megalomaniac and i don't know how to chill.. think it became kind of an ego. there is more but this is my urgent question. thank you people. Bless!
i know what you are going though because Im also drawn into photos and people Other than the other very good suggestions , what I have learn to do is feel these emotions , take them in and let them flow out. Like a cool breath of air. Though the nose and out the mouth. It's like turning pages in a book, you just keep going , page to page, not letting yourself get stuck on the headers, footnotes or colors. Like shuffling a deck of cards.
I use breathing techniques to keep mysel centered in the awkward moments and also I have certain meditation music I use that when I get stressed , I hear it in my head and it pulls me back in .
Grounding is a life saver also
