Classic CaseI am an empath, a classic case. If you read the definition . . . it defines me. I've been this way all my life . . .and it isn't easy. I feel what others feel so strongly sometimes it's difficult to separate it from myself when I'm over tired. I just know I need to recharge my batteries and withdraw from the world for a while . . . but I'm quick to bounce back. It spills into animals as well and I find it 's mutual . . . they too are accutely sensitive and theres a great repoir with them. I have a strong natural love for them and a need to help and defend them.
I cannot bear to watch violence of any kind on tv . . . boxing make me short of vomiting . . . it physically hurts me just to watch . . . so I don't. And what I find that's most disturbing is how easy it is sometimes to know what others are thinking by way of their emotions. You pick up on that emotional energy and it's like picking up a book . . . sometimes it's too easy to read . . . and I wish it wasn't so.
