Empathy, being an empath, what does it mean to you? Is it an explanation for confusing times throughout your life? Why you can't do or see certain things? Does it explain how one can be lonely and connected to everyone and everything at the same time? Do you see it as the first stepping stone to psychic abilities you want? Are you born with it or can anyone develop it over time? Everyone has put stories of their past on here, I'm just asking what is it to you. I hope that you'll do some soul searching before answering. Because from the first time you've searched the meaning to the word and how you use it to identify yourself to now you've grown and perhaps the meaning has changed or your understanding has. So really what's empathy, empathic abilities, being an empath to you?
