    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I feel like I'm feeling too many emotions at

    once. I'm angry at my mom, I'm sad and lonely. I feel like I'm about to explode. My mom is trying to shove our religion down my throat. Last night we watched this show called Star-Crossed and it was great until they were saying the pledge of allegiance and they left out "Under...

    “I feel too much. That's what's going on.

    ' 'Do you think one can feel too much? Or just feel in the wrong ways?' 'My insides don't match up with my outsides.' 'Do anyone's insides and outsides match up?' 'I don't know. I'm only me.' 'Maybe that's what a person's personality is: the difference between the inside and...

    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...
