    An Empath

    Marked by an acute sensitivity to the feeling of others, Empaths can actually feel another's pain and can heal it in some way. Since Empaths pick up on the feelings of others, there is a great understanding and ability to really "see" the other person. Others tune into the...

    Yup Yup

    Yes I do wish this! That way people wouldn't be so negligent of others. They wouldn't act so harsh, so indifferent toward emotions.

    I get it, that's why I'm too nice to people.

    I just know how it would make me feel, and I don't ever want anyone to feel that way. It's actually really exhausting. I over think too much ****.

    I wish we could feel what others feel!

    ! So we would be more understanding! And we won't be able to judge what I don't get is how can we say "I understand" if we didn't know what the other person felt? It's like we are lying to them! :( 💔 But with me what I do is I put myself in the person position I try to feel...

    I Tried, But Made Things Worse
