i think it it can be pretty common for us empath getting lost while trying to get settle with life.
First of all, you are not what you think you are, those are just impression you have cause you think you're doing it wrong. But are you really doing it wrong?
If your heart is coming to realization some companies are bad for you, you maybe should stay with your heart, i know exaclty what you mean, i ve been doing this for long, i start with a relationship or a project then i start letting it go cause it just doesnt feel right.
Some thing i learn about this, we empath are very sensitive, some people do not have a bad intention into our lifes but just arent in our path(it doesnt have anything to do with us), same thing jobwise...so if you dont shield and dont energize yourself is easy to get lost into their objectives, and drained, blank...
The thing i tell you is balance. whenever your heart feels like seeing someone go, when you feel like leaving say bye. try to find places and people and activities you like to share more time with..
whenever you feel like being lonely, enjoy yourself... and be very calm, no hurry...you got a whole life to explore!
