emotionless empath


Empath

JoniG:

This is an interesting discussion...a topic I had never considered but need to examine, thank you!!! I also appreciate the recommendation of the book...I just ordered it from Amazon :) 

Laugh the idea of an empathic person without emotions is a little weird considering it contradicts the definition of being an empath. i suppose that's why i  felt i way a little abnormal. but its always good to learn new things and just how normal they really are.

emotionless empath


Empath

Yeah that's exactly how I feel, like I'm being consumed by everyone else's feelings, but can't actually access my own.. And it really helps to know I'm not the only one going through this, it always made me feel like a fraud, like how can I be an empath when I don't even have feelings of my own.. And I will be sure to check the book out, feel like I'll need all the help I can get :)

Empath

It has been more than helpful, thank you a lot and I would very much appreciate your help. It would be good to be able to feel something and be able to have normal relationships with people close to me.. And not constantly feel like something is wrong with me

emotionless empath


Empath

Ok so this is about to be the weirdest question I've ever asked, but I need to know if its possible to be an empath but not have emotions of your own? Sounds crazy I know.. I am able to take on other people's feelings like any other empath,my nephew used to be terrified of helicopters, soon after I'd have this crippling fear whenever a helicopter would fly over it.. As he got older he got over the fear and so did I. If my mum/sister is sick, I'll show symptoms of whatever is wrong with them shortly after. I can always tell what someone is feeling because I feel it too,classic empath characteristics really. These past 2 years however, I don't feel like I have emotions of my own, more like I'm numb or dead inside, but I can still feel what others are feeling, the happiness, anxiety, depression, their guilt, pretty much everything really. I just don't feel any emotion that's actually mine.like starting new relationships, they always start out good, but a few months down the line its like someone flips a switch off, like maybe what I was feeling all alone was my partners emotions and never really mine. I feel I should add that I had a rather traumatic childhood and that did affect me negatively..

untold stories


Arts

They stare out the window hoping to see the mist of tomorrow’s past

But regrettably nothing is ever clear from a rose colored window

All they could ever hope to see is the caviler of the lost symbol

As they drift away into oblivion, no one will ever know they existed

The sad truth is no one will even care

for they didn’t make it this far without surrendering a few heartfelt punches

They stare out the window hoping to catch a glimpse of a perfect tomorrow

But do they know that such hopefulness never ceases to disappoint

The story of a lost symbol burns deep in their memories

for they understand that’s the sum of their lives

They too will end up as nothing but a lost mark

forgotten to the world but never to the ones they destroyed

Do they know that they would kill to see them again, do they even care?

When the darkness surrounds you

all you can do to keep yourself from screaming is pray

But who are they praying to/ is he listening?

Would such a high power even care enough to hear their prayers?

Would he understand their choices? Would anyone?

They stare out the window hoping the green light will emerge

it would be the global symbol of hope

but do they know that hope breeds eternal misery?

Forever waiting by the window for the knight in shining amour’s arrival

but gladiators are a thing of the past

which is where they’re choked up to as far as the world is concerned

To the world their only existence is through bonfire stories

telling tales of far unknown worlds, telling victories over unknown foes

But do they know?

That they will never be anything more than a memory

a past time that symbolizes unyielding faith and unbearable melancholy

Haunted by the bloodshed they should know it will never stop

Ghosts at every corner pester them

demanding justice from their perpetrators but forever remaining in the shadows

for fear of being chastised

Ghosts of a far gone life they never wish to relive

These are the ghosts of men and women alike from all spheres of life

They sit tight waiting for a day when it all goes to hell

But what’s hell compared to the catastrophic impact of their actions

Do they know?

The concierge comes by in the cold Birmingham ship

the lives of lost souls float above the water

hoping to someday tell their story

The current flows in different directions

the souls of men long since drowned by them sing like angels

for a story that is yet to be told

They drift between worlds

waiting for a veil to lift up and let them see the light of a new dawn

They stay put hoping that soon enough people will listen to what they have to say

But the deep ocean keeps them trapped

the deep blue darkness outweighs their forces

will sailors eventually hear their cries? Will they tell their stories?

Will anyone...

not wanting to talk


Empath

Its a warming feeling to know that there are people like us, facing the same challenges we do. It makes our journey seem less lonely I guess

not wanting to talk


Empath

This happens to me a lot too, there are times when I just don't want to be around people, most times actually. It always makes me feel bad because to my family and friends, it looks like I don't want to spend time with them. And its even hard to explain to them that being on my own, is something I need to recharge and be able to face the world. I worked at a bar once, and it was torture. The constant mood swings that I couldn't even begin to understand and being sick all the time, I'd go to the bathroom a lot just to get away from it all. Eventually I quit

Empath and single


Empath

I believe most empaths feel like this. We long to have someone who will understand us completely. Someone who won't find you weird because of who you are because they themselves are just like you

voices in my head


Empath

People normally fear what they don't know or even understand. Sometimes its not easy seeing things from someone's perspective, especially when you're a logical person. People are afraid to admit to each other and even themselves that there is more to the world than what meets the eye. So I think its easier to label someone as crazy rather than acknowledge that there's a whole new world out there, a world where some people see the dead, hear spirits, can read minds or even see the future. Because things scare you more when you aren't a part of them

voices in my head


Empath

Well I can't say I had it easy growing up, but no my parents weren't abusive, well my father was a terrible husband and an abusive husband. But he was good to me, so that could be it. However, all the voices I hear are never familiar to me so its hard to say its their words echoing in my head

Empath

Its only normal that people can think I'm sick lol but it really is helpful to have people who understand what I'm going through. Hearing everyone's stories kind of helps normalize the entire experience, well an empath's kind of normal that is lol

voices in my head


Empath

That's what worries me, on the off chance that nothing is wrong with me, I'll still sound crazy to them, because you can't exactly justify hearing voices as being an empath or clairaudience to a medical person. But then again if it is a mental case, I'd like to know too

Empath

How did you suppress them? I guess that's the problem for me, sometimes I feel like they're taking over. I don't necessarily want to stop hearing them, I just want to know that I'm in control of my own thoughts, like you're saying.

That's exactly how I feel, especially when I'm on my own, there's just to much chatter going on and some times the feeling that you're not alone can be comforting

constantly dreaming about one person


Dreams

For the past 3-4 years I've had a reocurring dreaming about an old classmate of mine, we used to be friends but I haven't seen him in years. Sometimes I dream about his twin brother but mostly its him. In the dream we're always so in love, its like an intense feeling I've never felt before, I imagine that's how you feel when you meet your soulmate. However in waking life, I feel nothing for him and I never even think about him, its like he doesn't exist at all and its starting to frustrate me because I'm no closer to discovering what it actually means or what my subconcious is trying to tell me :(

voices in my head


Empath

I never really thought of it as tuning into other people's thoughts. It always feels like they're trying to have a conversation with me and sometimes with each other. Its like they're a part of me somehow, constantly talking about everything that's happening around me and with me. I don't know if I'm explaining myself well, but yes it does get frustrating most times

voices in my head


Empath

For as long as I can remember, I have always head voices in my head, at first I thought it was just a thought voice and I never paid much attention to it but as I got older, it became more than just one voice and they got more vivid. It literally feels like I have a bunch of people stuck in my head and they're all screaming at me and they all have different personalities and it can get frustrating. I wonder whether this is another side of being an empath or whether its a case of multiple personality disorder

I don't think there's a way to turn it off, I mean it's hardly a lifestyle choice, its who you are, but I do understand the urge to turn it all off. I normally secluded myself from the rest of the world, it always seemed to have a calming effect. However, the problem with this is that it deprives you the chance to actually live and experience things :(
