More female empaths than male?
I think it difficult for most of us to really open up about it. I relate it to opening up about your feelings romantic feelings to a crush. For me personally it's always been difficult to 'make the first move.' Once you open up about being gifted/empath you open a lot of doors. I think the older we get the more comfortable we become. I search for ways to be more open to because I want that connection. But it's difficult. To be honest I haven't ever really told my wife that I was an empath. And I think that she is an empath to. funny situation there.
I was born and raised in Denver Colorado. I now live in San Diego California. And have still have not met someone who is open about being an empath. I think once we learn how to be more vocal about it then we will find other like ourselves.
All of this sounds like a big learning lesson for me personally. It's actually bringing me a lot of joy forecasting my growth that I am going to be focusing on.
