I Am Very Empathetic

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 308 People

    Of course I feel other peoples emotions!

    Most definitely much more than I feel my own :/ I thought this was normal? I don't really like to label myself, rather just be a free soul but if anyone labelled me something, I'm glad it's this :)

    Empathetically Aware

    It actually wasn't too long ago when i realized how sensitive i have always been to people around me, how easily i can relate and understand. I have found that people often tell me i am so easy to talk to that they just spill everything on their mind. And though i am grateful...

    Being Empathetic Has Its Challenges

    I am highly empathetic.  Even one of my college profs made note of it.  But it isn't a very easy trait...or gift because I am beginning to realize it as a gift...but it's not an easy one to have at times.  For example, at work when I am dealing with people with...

    I just sat here and listened

    I can empathize with people

    so much that sometimes I end up mirroring their emotions. I act and behave like them. When someone shares his/her grief or misery with me, I take their problem home, and in the process I end up losing myself, I end up valuing them and their problems more than myself and my own...

    But Who Has Empathy For the Empathetic?

    I feel what other feel. I have the ability to put myself in others shoes, see the world from their eyes. This makes life difficult sometimes. I want to be a normal person, but normal people hurt other people unintentionally, and I can't, because I always see where I would hurt...

    Being An Empathetic Person Is Beautiful.

    I honestly never even could put a name to what I was feeling before. I grew up in a negative environment (which we all know is toxic for an Empathetic), and I don't know that I would have had it any other way. Because of this, I now understand myself to be very lenient and...
