Does anyone ever see you for you?
For me., I grew up without anyone understanding me, at 18 a man jogged by my friends house, we went to his home where he and two room mates lived, and I thought this man is too cute to be real. He asked us if we wanted to listen to some music. Being who I am, I said the name of a band that had just released an album the day prior to this day. He said, "I just got it yesterday". For 31 years we have been best friends..lllllI prayed for someone to understand me, and he jogged past me one day.
Until now, that was always enough, but life and distance gives me less and less time with him, and I feel lost, with that hopeless feeling that no one understands me, and I am surrounded by people that take advantage of my kind and generous nature, and so negative.
This too shall pass, what I am getting at is, that I think it is hard to understand ourselves with so many emotions inundating us constantly. Somehow by the time I am done with everyone else's feelings, it makes it so difficult to understand how I feel. If I do not understand myself, how can others.
I am grateful for this community, I am excited to read fellow Empath's stories, comments and replies in hopes that together we can find a way to live the best lives we can, the lives we were meant to live, joyous and filled with love,. instead of so much hurt, pain and suffering.
I pray we all find what it is we are searching for, in that, perhaps we can grow and help others like us suffer less and prosper more.
Peace be with you all.
