    I Feel Your Feelings And Everyone Elses.

    I see your thoughts, I feel your feelings. I look in your eyes and know your pain. I know what hurts you and I wish I could make it better. I see the tear in your eye...the one you think no one will notice. I feel my heart breaking and wonder if it is mine or yours. I struggle...

    Today I woke up and went to the gym.

    It was a fantastic workout. I got compliments and I was feeling good. Out of the blue my mom calls and wants me to have lunch with her. I get this urge of hatred and annoyance built up . From the rest of the day on I've been feeling easily irritated and ******. I have no clue...

    highly sensitive person. Apparently it is some kind of gift or curse I can't decide. I can sense alot of things, it's not something I sit and concentrate on...things and knowledge of things just come over me. I can even feel slight earthquakes. Empathic to a fault...

    I wasn't sure if this would already be an

    experience, but it makes me feel slightly better to know that there are others who experience life in this way. I used to be able to handle it, and even saw it as a positive. I felt it allowed me to understand the world better, to empathsise with others, and experience this life...

    About To Burst.

    I feel with more intensity than you could possibly imagine. Every emotion you've ever had, I've had to a degree I can't even convey in words. My sorrow is gut-wrenching pain. My anger is uncontrollable rage. My happiness, although fleeting, is filling and complete With all...

    The Empath's Curse

    The title says it all. For me, it is a curse when I become overwhelmed. Try as I might, I simply can not turn my feelings on and off. There have even been moments when I've become physically ill. I know now it is due to the fact that I turn all of those emotions inward...

    Too Emotional For This Cold, Logical Existence...

    I am sane in a world that sees me as insane and illogical. Everything I do is led by what my heart feels, rather than what my head thinks. For over a decade since I turned nineteen, this has done me no favours. Thirteen years since my first sexual encounter. I think the mere...
