    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...

    But Who Has Empathy For the Empathetic?

    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...
