I can tell many of you have had very hard lives. I've heard the stories. Ones I won't repeat. The horror of humanity I know full well.
I assumed I never became a serial killer because I was an empath. I fit the profile otherwise. Now I'm thinking the things I went through could have served to enhance my abilities. It's hard not to believe I was born this way since half my family show empathic traits, and a few of us know we are. My cousins are drug addicts and alcoholics(myself included). They are able to drown it out and learn to survive without ever being aware of what they are. I was never able too. I knew what people were thinking. Many times it keep me from being molested or otherwise injured by those out to get me. So empathy started early. Was it the trauma that made me more aware? Can you relate?
