Are you an Empath?
It just occurred to me how different feeling others happiness is rather than feeling their sadness. I can easily feel others pain and suffering and even take it on myself, but it's hard for me to…Continue
I know as empaths we can feel other peoples emotions making it easy to know what they need, but far to often I catch myself forgetting and expecting other people to understand and know how I feel and…Continue
I feel so at peace right now, it's crazy. I've reached the point of change, it's a change that I so desperately need. I'm ready to start doing what's best for me, what's right for me.

I said "I just don't want to have feelings, I don't want to feel anything," I wonder now if this had anything to do with feeling others emotions and not liking how it felt, not understanding at such a young age.
