    Now that's a good dream.

    .. How would everyone feel? I imagine my mother would feel more understood and appreciated, my aunt would feel worthless and stupid, my dog would be annoyed but too happy to care, my boss would be confused, my old teachers would be depressed except for a few, my doctor would be...

    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 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! :( đź’” But with me what I do is I put myself in the person position I try to feel...

    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 ****.

    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...
