am I an empath?
I dont want to sound dumb but I am confused, can anyone shed light please? After reading what the characteristics of an empath are, I am quite sure I am on the right path...however...I also went to see a shrink whho I asked if I had the symptoms of bordeline personailty. While he said he doesnt like to label people, he said I did have some of the signs...Im so confused.... my general personality is this..
1. Dont trust others
2. Have a very strong connection to animals and nature (animals follow me at times etc)
3. Dont watch the news
4.Seem to ofload peoples baggage somehow even strangers
5. Have a knowing of things/dream things etc
6. Only have mild feelings from others, not heightened though. If I watch something like soneone hurting on tv I do get shooting pains now and again, but I dont generally pick up feelings alot face to face
7. Am known to many as having a massive temper ((( (this is what makes me question myself)
8. Feel like I dont belong anywhere always feel lost..been described as a lost soul
9. Get hurt by people way too easily but instead of now crying I get mad and smash things :/ (hmmmm)
10. Get very anxious around people and go red very easily (weird)
11. People think Im nuts
12. Fall out with people easily if I feel they dont deserve my kindness, and I hide it so well they dont know its there
Help, what am I??!!
many Thanks xx
