I don't even remember when I realized that I was an empath. My mother tells me stories about me getting very distressed when I would hear children crying. This wasn't a situation of me being able to understand that crying meant pain typically, I was just a baby, I have even heard stories of me starting to move alot in utero when I would "hear" or "sense" a child crying. Over the years my abilities have grown and I can sense when someone is lying about what they are feeling and even know what they are feeling. I know what people need, be it just someone who will stay quiet and listen or if they need to hear something specific. And I am even able to sense things about my surroundings and people that I don't know. Thats pretty much the basic idea about my story. I'm interested in chatting with other people who share an empathic ability.
