    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...
