My name is Scott and I was born an empath as everyone else. Only difference is that my abilities weren't suppressed growing up. They were encouraged. I was introduced to this site by my late wife after I helped her discover that she too was empathic. I enjoy being an empath even though it's rough. I find joy in helping others and bringing some form of joy to their lives with my abilities. Other abilities that have developed over the years as a result of empathy is clairvoyance through dreams mostly, occasional clairaudience, and healing emotions and pain. I have had OBE (out of body experiences) but those are few and far between.
I am a father of 4. My daughter lives with her mother and I'm raising my 3 boys since their mom passed. I work full time in maintenance and do photography on the weekends. All extra time goes to my kids. That's pretty much me I guess. If I can help anyone, please let me know.
