Am I An Empath, Did I Inherit This?



So I figure I'll give this a shot. I'm a bit of a sceptic despite many of my experiences and I'm just trying to figure out what's going on.

If anything I probably get this from my mother. Since my grandmother passed away she's been appearing to my mother in her dreams with predictions about the future. 

In my own dreams I have seen deceased relatives of a friend who gave me messages to pass on.

Now what brings me here is mainly what I've been reading about "empaths". I've had experiences before we're I knew what a place or person looked like (accurately) without ever having seen them but lately I've been thinking about how my ability to "empathize" with people. I don't think the way I do this is "normal" like most people. Seeing someone in physical pain is horrible as I feel as though I can feel this pain myself. Seeing someone in emotional pain or torture makes me feel sick to my stomach.

I'm not sure if this is a "disorder" though where I'm just extra sensitive, when I was a child a used to believe that inanimate objects could also feel both physical and emotional pain (is that crazy?). At this  age however I can usually pick up on other peoples emotions pretty easily, but it's not always simple, it's not like if someone is depressed I can tell if they are, sometimes it's much stronger, if someone is really depressed or suicidal I start feeling depressed and suicidal myself.

I can't handle strong emotions because of this. Being around people who are angry and yelling at each other makes me want to leave the room... I can't handle arguments and "games" people play when they're dating for example make me feel physically Ill

My therapist thinks that It's all psychosomatic (I've been Ill for extended periods of time, but couldn't find any physical explanations) so this could be possible. 

I really just don't know what to Make of this or what to do.

Empath: A person who is capable of feeling the emotions of others despite the fact that they themselves are not going through the same situation.
What you do with that ability is help people with their emotions that they are feeling at the time. I wish I can help you out more but I myself have trying to understand my gifts. Two years ago is when I discovered mine and I am still learning as I go on. I hope that this has at least helped you out a bit.

Thank you for commenting midnightrose, was beginning to think I wouldn't get any answers. What does this empath ability mean though? What am I supposed to do with it?

Yes,you are an empath and yes you can inherit it. I get the same way when I am around that are yelling at each other. I just want to leave the room or cringe away. What I recommend that you do is imagine a bubble surrounding you. Or imagine white light surrounding. Whatever which one you prefer. This will help you bloke out other people's emotion. I hope that this helps you. Have a great day.
