Am I an Empath? Help please.
Stian, As I read your post I couldn't help but notice how this must be very frustrating for you. The Empath world is made up of different levels that a lot of us share. All of us have feltsomeemotion from another person. I have felt death, not something I would wish on my worse enemy. I didn't know I was an Empath till about a year ago. As I noticed different things and I started looking in to it more trying to find more information. To gain some type of understanding,I noticed that from your post all the items listed bring you sadness. Have you had any other emotions from your day to day life, when interacting with others?
Happiness, anger,longing, loneness, hate, have been felt by us even though we never really understood it. We also will from time to time be able to see something before it happens (Not every one has this ability).It took me along time to get that ability under control, even before I knew I was an Empath. it can be scary when you feel alone and have no one to talk to.None of us can give you the yes, you are or no, you are not an Empath, that you're looking for. We all took the longroad to finding out what we are, some of are still learning.We are here to help, but sometimes the answers are for us to find on our own.
That being said, I'm going to offer you some help.When youare near the people who cause you sadnesstake a moment and listen totheir body.Asfar as objectsthink of whyitmakes you sad. People watching is my favorite thing to do,peoplemay sayone thing butthe bodysays somethingdifferent.Once you see the way the body moves, and its mannerismsyou can then see what someone is truly feeling.Sadness is a powerful thing, being aroundto much of it will dull your true senses. I would suggest taking a few minuteseachday to yourself. Find a peaceful out of they way spot and sit with your eyes closed.Don't ask your self anyquestions, don'tponder, just sit and let your mind open and allow your body to recover.If you are an Empath beingoverloaded with emotions canhurt you. thatmay be why you are only feeling sadness (But it may not be the reason either).I wouldsayallow your selfsome timeget away for even 10 mins a day or week. It will helpto open your mind and clear it of the negative. Something else youcan do is take a test on line to see if you are or if you have the traits.I hope you find your answers.
