I Am Very Empathetic

    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...
