    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...

    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...

    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...

    I just sat here and listened

    as my close friend got kicked out of his band without notice or discussion. They replaced him with someone else just because he has more experience, even though my friend was already in the band. After all he did, even getting them connections. He wrote, he worked his voice raw...

    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 :)
