I Am Very Empathetic

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 243 People

    I am extremely empathetic.

    I am drenched in other people's emotions, and am easily affected by them. Because I can easily feel other people’s emotions, I make it a point to make them happy any way I can. I tell cheesy jokes, awful puns, and a wide variety of philosophies. I don’t like seeing people...

    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 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...

    So much that it hurts sometimes.

    I am finding that I need to cut ties with my father because of abuse. Right now he is asking "are you avoiding me" (via text) and despite it all, it kills me to say yes, and think of how he may feel. (I was still honest. Yay.) This example is quite normal. Some are not. Last...

    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 :)

    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...
