“It is both a blessing and a curse to feel everything so deeply”

Speaking from experience, an empath absorbs and feels other peoples emotions and energy, sometimes to the point that they become unaware of whether the feeling is their own or belongs to someone else. 

An empath may be been born with this super sensitive ability. They may have honed it through living in an unpredictable environment as a child or by exposure to emotionally unavailable, abusive or neglectful parents. Perhaps even a parent with a strong victim mentality that unloaded their problems onto you. 

Empaths are highly intuitive, they see more than what meets the eye. Many empaths subconsciously choose to cut off from this intuition if their early caregivers rejected or denied their own emotions.

An empath is a world class nurturer 

Empaths may find that people (even strangers) will open up and tell them things even if they don’t invite it. They can often tell when someone is deeply troubled and sad without them ever saying. Personally I really struggle to be around inauthentic people, and they too around me, its like they know I know they’re being fake. Oh and I can totally tell when they’re lying. 

You may have known for sometime that you are different from other people, you’ve likely been accused of being too sensitive or emotional your whole life. As a child you may have always been asking why or had unusually deep thoughts. 

Personally I have self medicated for years with alcohol and drugs, finally realising, that my carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders was somewhat down to this confusing experience of feeling other people’s pain and emotion.

You can feel like you’re going crazy and sometimes that you have to be entirely alone to survive. The good news is that through a journey of self discovery and healing you can learn to live and thrive as an empath.
