I seem to become one when performing a massage session. My intention is to feel the pain(not experience it, just be aware of it) and to relieve it with a sympathetic touch. It works extremely well.
Well elaborate. I find the subject fascinating.
Wow! That's got to be a nightmare sometimes!
That being said, it must be that everyone is an empath to at least some small degree. Your empathy is a lot more than most people. At least I get to help people; you have to feel everyone's pain as your own kind of thing? That's terrible.
I think that you had better surround yourself with good and positive people then. No assholes allowed! You don't feel their physical pain also I hope.
I'm curious to ask (same question I just asked to Bozette):
How differently does this sensitivity act when you are interacting with people online, in text form, rather than in person?
Interesting, I thought it would be usually less intense via text. Thank you for the answer. :)
I'm curious to ask:
Thank you. :) That is indeed surprising.
I would not call myself an Empath, however, there are some characteristics I share with Empaths, ie;
I know when someone is not being honest.
I do look out for the underdog.
Others a times want to offload their problems on me. [I do not accept - one reason why I would not call myself an Empath.]
I love of nature and animals - typical of Empaths.
I'm a good listener - Empath trait.
I like antiques - something Empaths avoid for fear of taking on previous owner energy.
Mostly a sympath
I'm empath to a certain degree. I especially feel it around toxic people. In that sense it's a blessing because I know who to stay away from.
Yes. I am ultra sensitive and avoid people outside of work. It is exhausting to feel so much.
Actually yes I am. Its exhausting.
Yes, I am
No, I'm a pathologist. I know the best way to go anywhere.
Yes very much so, it helps me to deal with people, if I want to do it. Like in office I can tell immediately what kinda day my boss is going to deal out to us.
