All falls into place.. but now what?
Thanks Rene, Yes I love my animals. I have lost a few over the years, they are like people to me. I would be lost without them. I to believe we will see them again. Thanks for your words.
Your reply was fine.. I didn't find it harsh. Felt fine to me,
Well I look back at the person I was all those many years ago and it was someone else not me now. Look at how we have grown and changed. Many things along the way have helped us without us knowing. I'm glad you had your dog back then at that time. Pets sense our needs and are truly there for us ...no judging, unconditional love. I'm sorry to hear how you were treated when you were young also. NO ONE deserves it. Just understand this, the people who were like that to you, were themselves very unhappy within. Your not to feel sorry for them, but know it was not your fault and your reactions afterwards was just a release but your past that now and don't let it effect your now. It's hard opening your heart to others. Just look for the warning signs to protect yourself, if needed. Hey and another saying for you, since you liked the last one so much..
You have to go through some bad shit to appreciate the good shit.
Yes those Narcs sure give you an emotional beating. Well I'm truly prepared now though, not going to let that happen again. 20 years is enough for me. What to do now? Your right, sit back and relax and take what comes. This gift is for a reason I'm sure, so I will see what crosses my path and see who I can help and just enjoy this new feeling of freedom.
Oh Gem, your poor kitty and how traumatic that must of been for you and they way it happened. I have had to put down a few pets due to Cancer. Holding them as they die is ...found it hard to find the words, I can't think of the words that can explain that feeling, but I'm sure you know what I mean. They are apart of you and you will never forget them and I definitely believe we will see them again one day. I have had my cat from many years ago visit me in a dream. I'm hoping now with understanding what I am, I will be more open to it and stop fighting it at times.
Thank you for taking the time to answer me, much appreciated. Blessings to you to. x
Thanks .. relaxing sounds so good. Just take what comes I suppose and be happy that I know how to deal with it and that I'm not crazy.
That must of been hard for you to loose your dog like that. I can see why you have not opened up again, it really pulls at the heart. Our dog of 18 years just passed away last year, and I thought that I would not get anymore pets, it just hurts too much. .. but then we let our son bring home two rats from school. They are the cutest things.. I think of the saying.. "It is better to have loved and lost than to never of loved at all." I think the love of the animal out ways the hurt, as bad as it is. That's me personally anyway. Thanks for sharing, good hearted person.
Happy new year to you to Star love. Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post. Such lovely words. I have always had animals, can't be without them. The only problem is when they pass, they are like people to me and it rips me apart. I see a caterpillar on the hot concrete of a footpath and have to pick it up and put it in the garden. Oh my fuzzies are everything to me. I feel sick to my stomach if I see any cruelty to animals and the image stays with me that I have to try and block out if it pops back into my head. Always helping people when I can. I always get people talking to me with their problems, people that I don't even know very well. I will help when I can. My husband and two boys (15 and 13) are also Empaths. My two adult step children and their mother are Narcissists, so I have tried to help my adult children with no luck, my husband and I just got chewed up and spat out. But now I have control of my mind with that situation I feel more open to the world. Help when I can is all I can do I suppose. Thank you again.. sending love your way.
Hi Martha, I'm a practicing Catholic (every Sunday) but not born into the faith. I've only been Catholic for 6 years. I to feel the parishioners who are there at church for the wrong reasons but I also feel the good people. Before I started going to church all I wanted to do is be around good people. This was before I found out that I'm an Empath. Well yes now I'm around good people and also attract the needy (of course). Yes God has given us this gift and I still go to church to thank him for all he is doing in my life, because we are there for him really. I feel love in our church and ignore the other feelings. Almost zone out to them and concentrate on the love. When you walk into the church, you can just feel it in the air. I have meet some wonderful people and other Empaths. Maybe look for another church, each church can have a different dimension. Start fresh. Hope this helps in some way.
I'm new to this site and love reading peoples stories. I've only just found out that there is a title for how I have been feeling all my life. Reading everything out there can but a bit over whelming. A vivid memory just came back to me from when I was a child while reading through things. I love animals with my every being, I remember we had a dog called Lady. One night mum went out to go across the road to the Dairy and dad let the dog out in the back yard. I was pleading with him not to let the dog out but who listens to a 8 year old child? 10 minuets later mum comes rushing back saying Lady has been killed on the road following her to the shop. She escaped through a hole in the fence that we did not know about. I was hysterical, yelling at dad saying I told you not to let her out. Cried all night. How did I know? Then I just felt awful about how I yelled at dad as I could feel his pain and that he felt so responsible. I thought I would share my story with people who understand. I'm only now getting to grips with it all.. but now what? I'll keep on reading but it's just confirming feelings.. where do I go now?
