Mirroring Vs. Empath
I definitely relate as an INFJ. I think that often since it's not socially acceptable to be an Empath, we will sometimes try to create a person that is more "deserving" of love through Mirroring.
Taking a baseline has been helpful for me in the past too (when I remember). It also helps to think about why you could be feeling what you are feeling. If you don't know, think about why someone you are with right now could be feeling that emotion. That really helps me to know where the emotion is coming from and how to deal with it
I'm so glad I found the community & am looking forward to getting lots of good advice from more experienced empaths.
I've been a precognitive empath my whole life but have just found the label recently. I'm really interested in learning to develop more psychic abilities and fine tune the ones I have now (my precognition pops in every once in a while but isn't very reliable).
Love and Light,
