    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...

    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...
