    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
