Signs you are an Empath

Everyone feels energy around them. Some cannot make sense of what it is that they’re feeling and thus ignore it. Some however, feel the energy around them times ten. Not only that, but they know things that others do not.
I am talking about the Empathic people. Empaths are very intuitive and sensitive. They can pick up the emotions and moods of other people around them without even speaking to them. They feel everything more deeply. Meaning that they feel things before they can even make sense of it all. They get emotional at the actions of someone before they realise what exactly bothered them about it. This can often confuse them because they can’t make sense of all their feelings.

Being empathic can be a blessing and a burden. Because they feel everything, they also absorb everything. They can easily pick up and reflect what someone else is feeling. This makes things confusing for them, because it can be difficult to differentiate what emotions are theirs and what belongs to other people. It is very important for the empath to meditate and get to know themselves better. With time, they will be able to seperate themselves from others. If you are reading this, you are probably empathic, and so be easy on yourself if there are times when you get nothing done or can’t figure out your next move in life. People who are sensitive to the universe and energy have a gift that others do not. Embrace your gift, hone your gift, and love your gift. Meditate daily, and stay grounded by taking a walk in nature. Here are signs you are empathic.

    Many of those symptoms anyone can relate to, but a select few do not. It would seem you may have the affliction of overactive empathy, because all your t’s and lowwercase j’s are dotted nicely. I have witnessed an overflow of unknown ridule upon unsuspecting others far enough for reasons not worth mentioning. But I will say laughter is good medicine for honest people, sadly worse for evil ones. I trust someone with creative writing skills and kept composure such as yourself, would understand this with true compassion. For anyone who found a way out of an incurable mental trauma successfully without useless pills and pep talks, or suicide, not be tarred and feathered, but commended for something Ph.D’s handed awards dont condone. Just my two cents. I enjoyed reading your article, thank you for saying a word for ones who suffer inside. 👌

      Ivan, yes overactive empathy is a thing I struggled with. I hope others will come to understand why it is that they suffer in these ways as well. Then they can hopefully begin to work on strengthening themselves against these things. Thank you for your comment and read.

    Nice Article and thoughts but the questions is , did you really experienced the empath in life with others to understand them? or these are only words here without truth ?
