I stumbled across this group through Google and I hope to find some actual like-minded people here. I believe I have been an empath all my life, or at least since very young. It explains a lot about the way I've been my whole life. I'm not here looking to strengthen my "gifts", only to understand better. I have always been very attuned to how others are feeling and I can predict people's mood better than themselves. But, personally, I don't know how to interpret or show my own emotions.
Lately, things have gotten worse. There is so much turmoil in the greater world. In my own world, people are becoming intolerable. No one says what they mean anymore. Everyone is fake & lying to themselves & everyone else to get ahead in the world. People are mean & petty & fake. There are some days that I don't want to leave my apartment & deal with anyone from outside, even people I get along with. I feel like I have to wear a mask & walk around in a bubble just so that "normal" people don't give that sideways glance...like wtf...
There are also many fake empaths out there. It's cool to be an empath right now. Here, I hope to find a group of truly like minded individuals.
