The thing I like most about being an empath is that I can read almost everyone so well. I did not realize how much this helped me avoid trouble, until I met someone I could not read properly, and botched the whole relationship due to my misreading. I realized then how much I depend on this ability in normal day to day life. I have also been able to help others out by reading someone, when they were about to be taken advantage of, and sometimes the issue involved has been quite serious. I hope this helps a bit. I think we are all a bit sad now, being in this ongoing, highly unnatural situation for human beings. We empaths are feeling the sadness of those around us as well. Taking walks out in nature is almost always a great idea, and even if it doesn't help lessen your sadness, there are so many other benefits!
