    There's people saying acting like: 'I know

    things without being told' those same people saying the whole 'I'm not a mind reader' when it suits them when they don't WANT to understand. Empathy is love, empathy is communication, empathy is understanding what someone's feeling without them saying. When someone says 'they're...

    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...

    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...

    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 :)
