Thinking


Empath

For the past few months I have noticed that in any given conversation with anyone, sometimes just listening to a conversation, I will think something and someone will say it. This also happens with tv. Sometimes it will be word for word and sometimes it will be the same thing but worded differently. Use to I called this a kawinkydink as it happened seldom but now it happens all the time. It's weird! What is happening? What would I call this?

Days of the week........


Empath

I read this morning about feeling the days of the week. I have always known I could, even before realizing I am an empath. I never talked about it because I figured people would think I am weird. For instance, although as a stay at home mom I love Mondays, it always feels draggy to me but Tuesdays feel balanced. Holidays on which school is out or people are off work cause me to feel unbalanced because the mood or energy of the day changes. During breaks like Christmas and Summer vacation it takes me a few days to acclimate. Can you feel the difference in the days? Does it change for you with disruptions from holidays or weather?

First time....


Empath

I can't give you advice but I can say I understand. I only figured out that I am an empath in the last year and with everything I learn it's like I open more and open up and now I am trying to figure out how to not close it off but to level it out. It's hard. The energy around me has been very negative lately and has put me in a dark place, I am a happy person so this has been rough, I can't seem to block it. So yeah I understand, you are not alone!!!

Deja Vu or Dreams coming true?


Empath

I have dreams that come true but it's always something like what you described. Driving down the road and a car will pass me and I remember the dream or I will be watching something I have never watched before and I will remember dreaming it. Sometimes I remember the dreams when I wake up but will just put it aside because it means nothing at the time and then when it happens it comes back to me. Sometimes it sends me into a panic because I can't remember the entire dream and I am afraid something bad will happen. I have even went as far as calling family members to ask if they are okay.

I tend to attract a narcissistic personality type so friends for me are few and far between, I have trust issues!!!

But seriously I do have friends but not like other people have friends, it's more semi regular and I am always here but I do not always have someone to turn to.

Are you competitive?


Empath

I like these replies especially the one about kids. My husband, from a tiny child, was basically forced to play sports, baseball, basketball, football. We just recently got rid of all his trophies, and there were a lot of them. Thankfully it was his decision to get rid of them. I would never had made him. But since he was forced and didn't have much time for anything else our children are allowed to do what they want and if they start something and decide they do not like it they are allowed to stop. We do tell them about being responsible and thinking of the group or team that is relying on them but we do not force them to do anything that they do not have to do. Last year I was sitting at my daughter's school waiting for her to come out and there was a mother and son pitching a baseball, I watched them for a while and noticed the mother was getting a little annoyed. She went in the building and her son walked to their truck, I could feel his sadness, it was awful. I think he likes the sport but it wasn't fun for him anymore. It was very sad.

I feel deeply what other people feel and unless it is someone who has royally ticked me off, I do have a bit of a mean streak, it doesn't rear it's ugly head often and I have to be pushed to the brink before it does, it's hard for me to compete because most people are competitive and because I feel so deeply it's hard not to feel their disappointment. Like the rest of you winning and losing doesn't really affect me personally, I just like to play, but what the other person feels is what bothers me. I haven't quite learned how to turn it down yet, I am working on that.

Are you competitive?


Empath

I have never been what you would call a competitive person. I enjoy sports and games but I prefer to play against myself versus someone else. I always find myself holding back if I am in the lead so the other person doesn't feel bad and that usually causes me to lose the lead. Sometimes I actually feel guilty if I win.

I am wondering now if this is just one of my many weird quirks or is this an empath trait.

So I am asking you, my fellow empaths......

Are you competitive?

Please explain how winning and losing makes you feel.

For me, this is a very intriguing topic.

It's all gone crazy.......


Empath

I live in a subdivision, there are 134 houses and most of them are occupied. On one side I have a situation where an adult daughter has moved back in, this adult daughter moved her two under the age of 5 sons in and she has a rank energy and is causing a lot of tension in the family. On the other side I have the Jersey attitude, I have met other people from NJ and I know there are nice people from there but my NDN is the epitome of the Jersey Girl. That family loves by fighting, aggression is their joy. A few doors up from there is a drunk who lives off of doctor's prescriptions. A divorce is happening across the street, beside that house is a house of confusion and mental problems. The two houses behind me are at war over noise.

If I am not angry I am sad, if I am not sad I am confused, if I am not confused I feel high, I need a massive dose of Calgon!!!

I long for a country walk today. I want to sit out in the middle of a field and enjoy the sunlight on my face and listen to the grasshoppers hop from weed to weed. I want to walk by a pond and hear the gentle wiggle of the tadpoles. I want to feel the breeze as a junebug flies by my head and hear the buzzing of a sweet bumble bee. Watch the butterflies dip and light on a nearby flower. I want to walk through the trees and listen to the squirrels play overhead and the birds chirping from their nests. Oh nature!!!

why I joined this network


Empath

As an empath, in the past few weeks, I have been in random turmoil, dealing with another empath that lives close to me who is negative, I have been harassed by this person. I am also dealing with another aspect of my gifts that is spiritual, I have been attacked numerous times, so I don't post much right now because I would basically be venting and I do not wish to do that. I don't want everything I post to come across as negative, that's not me, I am a positive person. With everything that is going on in the world at the moment, especially for the country that I live, it's particular hard. No matter how I feel personally I get everyone's feelings. I guess what I am saying is I have understanding for those having a hard time. I am enthusiastic about my gift, it excites me to think of all the things I can do and all the people I will be able to help but it is difficult when times are hard. One thing that normal people do not have for empaths is patience but we need to be patient with each other.

Your last sentence really speaks volumes. I made this yesterday, the last line originally said " But they can not perceive me" but it didn't seem right so I changed it.........

Too much negativity


Empath

I am just learning but when I need to get away from the negativity I get me some me time, usually a hot bath or working with my flowers, nature is a good way to get some positive energy. I also read, something interestingly fiction that will keep my attention and not allow me to think about the negativity. Another thing I do is analyze exactly what it is I am feeling, is it mine, is that the way I am really thinking, is that the way I really and truly feel, most of the time it isn't and once I realize that I can get past it. I think we all come to understanding in our own way and you will find yours.

Conflicting energy.........


Empath

I am in a great mood, I am happy, light, airy, am actually in no pain for the first time in weeks but I have this negative weightiness in my upper arms, it doesn't hurt, it's just heavy and I know someone in closeproximity to me is having a bad day, I don't know who, it may be someone I do not know personally, I live in a large subdivision and don't know all my neighbors. It could be the lady 4 doors up who last night offended another neighbor, she may have sobered up and actually remembered her stupidity and is now feeling bad about it or is angry because of what was said to her. I just don't know but all I want to do is shout, "Whoever is having a bad day will you stop because your are messing with my vibe!!!". Seriously, I have so much to do today and have accomplished nothing more than loading the washer. I feel weighted and it's a conflict of what I feel and want and what I know is not mine. I actually want to clean but am having a hard time getting up to do it, I am about to force myself and maybe it will work some of this out.

This is my venting, does anyone else ever feel this way?

I only recently realized this, in the last year or so after I began to understand more about myself. But thinking back I have always felt disconnected, not a part of anything, always standing on the outside. I know I am a part of my family, I know they love me and care about me, but I have always felt a disconnect, like there is a grey area between me and all of everything else, even in church I felt like I was standing outside of the group looking in and couldn't fully be apart of it all. It caused a lot of depression and unworthy feelings because I didn't understand, now I do. Now for me it's more about acceptance, I want to be accepted for who I am, not what others believe I am and in trying to explain it's made it worse which has made me want to crawl inside myself and lock myself away. I am trying very hard not to do this. Thankfully I have a husband who understands, believes, and accepts it. If not for him I would cease to exist.

Empath or something else?


Empath

You guys have actually commented a lot of things I and my husband have both thought and said, we have gone over and over this, he's a great listener and is my balance, he keeps me grounded, my true soul mate. Your words have validated a lot of what I have myself thought. It has given me more to think about and is pushing my decision to block her out completely as far as social media, I have fears of doing that because it may prompt a personal visit.

Empath or something else?


Empath

This story begins with a dream house, we had always rented and finally were financially able to buy a house and we began looking. We saw a sign and drove into the neighborhood, I loved it. We set up an appointment to view the house and after walking in I knew this is where I was suppose to be. It was the first house we looked at and I was done. After moving in neighbors started adding me as a friend on FB. Some I met in person other's I still haven't really gotten to know and it's been 3 years. About a year after we moved in I noticed that one of my friends belonged to a FB group for a Christian paranormal group. I sent her a message asking if it would be ok if I joined, I did not want to step on anyone's turf. She welcomed me in and we started talking and quickly became friends. The paranormal group had a chance to go to a bed and breakfast for an investigation a few hours away and we both jumped at the chance to go. It was during that weekend that I began to realize that something wasn't quite right. The team leader asked me if I was tired, he said I looked like I was tired. I have always been able to see things, spirits, I see, feel, hear, and have been touched on numerous occasions, there was a lot of activity that weekend but nothing happened for me when she was around. We shared a room in the most haunted room in the place and nothing happened. On the first full day we were there I had to literally get up and walk outside to shake an awful feeling I had coming from her, it was jealously, I didn't understand it then, that was before I began to realize I am an empath, I just knew she was making me feel awful. It was like I was angry but didn't know why I was angry. After coming home I noticed how drained I was and started paying attention to how I felt after a visit with her. Once I figured out my gifts I realized she was actually draining me of my energy. She claims to be an empath but I am not fully sure what she is.

A quick rundown of her personality.........

She is a hypochondriacand claims many ailments, she uses these ailments to gain pity and feels that that pity makes friendships, she uses her friends to get things she wants, child care, someone to sit with her when she is depressed, I have even ran to the drug store for her when she was so sick she couldn't get out of bed. She also uses her friends for validation, she manipulates them into agreeing with her and she is really good at it, or at least she was.

I had began to pull away from her months before a major fall out, slowly phasing her out. Then one day she got rather snarky with me and few other people online. I am not someone who calls people out on things, mainly because I always come out feeling awful, which I can now blame on the empath abilities because I am feeling what they are feeling as if I am feeling it which even knowing this doesn't make it any easier to call someone out. But this time I did and realized that she does not like being disagreed with and covets her validation with seriousness. It went from me telling her I felt she was being rude to her calling me stupid. I cut off the friendship in it's entirety but she seems to be constantly there, in front of me. She lives only 4 doors up the street and we belong to several of the same FB groups, one of which is for our HOA. I can't block her because it will make it confusing in the groups. Because of this she is able to poke at me and she does quite frequently. But that's not the bad part, sometimes I feel myself getting angry and she is there in the forefront of that anger and I don't understand it because although it annoys me that she does the things she does I tend to let it roll of with some laughter. So why the angry, I am wondering if she is projecting it towards me. She can't live without her validation, if someone doesn't tell her that how she feels is correct she will spend 3 days in bed, I kid you not, I have seen it happen, remember that trip to the drug store, that was due to another neighbor yelling at her for going to fast and not everyone she talked to agreed with her.

So anyway, I am left wondering if she is an empath or could she be something else? Can empaths be negative? Can she literally suck all the positive energy out of me and turn it into something negative? And can she project her anger towards me from up the street?

Children questions


Empath

One of the worst things my parents did was tell me it was my imagination or worse yet, the devil. I started seeing things very early, one of my earliest memories is of a very scary spirit, I still remember the fear, I was 3. The fact that you believe her, that you listen to her, is a step in the right direction. I wish my parents, who by the way are very good parents, had of been like you in respect to my gifts, I wouldn't have had such a hard time understanding. That little girl is a lucky little girl. Research is good but the most important thing in my opinion is being there for her. Listen to her and let her know that you do believe her, you are her comfort and she needs that to come to when things get scary.

Today has been so hard for me.........


Empath

I have felt it building all day but it hit me hard a little while ago and I cried. I will not post my views on today's event in the USA but will say that as an Empath I am experiencing a lot of joy, anger, and fear, it's all coming at me at once and I am feeling so very conflicted that I could not even begin to put into words "my" feelings on the event.

This has been a terrible week in the news, local, national, and world as far as anger and pain and loss and I have decided it is time once again to back away from the media and close myself off to the world, not completely, just not reading for a while the things that are happening, I like staying informed but not at the expense of my mind and body.

Is anyone else feeling this way today?
