Trump Vs. Clinton
If you want to avoid negative feelings, then avoid anything political/religious as I do (unless I'm in a group to discuss those subjects specifically). Politics always bring out the worst in people so when with family and friends, I stick with the rule "no politics or religion". Especially if you're an empath. I care about *all* people so being around those who tend to be extreme in their views, wears down my energy too much and leaves me with a ill feeling (even with shield in place). So the best thing for me is to avoid those who are into not getting along with others for whatever reason.
