Would You Consider This A Gift Or Ability?


I've been aware of my "gift" for quite some time now. I don't know if you would call it a gift/ability but I can tell if a person is good or bad. I can also feel if they are in pain/sad.

In 5th grade we had a new girl, she was dressed decently and looked like a very nice kid. So my friends and I approached her and we all started talking. For some reason I just had this feeling that something was up, or that she had some negative intentions. My friends were completely blind to this and it drove me insane. Every time I would talk to her I could just tell there was something up, I just didn't know what.

Well in a few weeks time my suspicion became reality. This girl was a TROUBLE maker. I'm the only one out of my friends that never got in-trouble because of her little schemes. Then one day, she moved. She was only at our school for a month. All of my other friends tried to keep in touch with her, except for me. Then all communications were cut out of the blue and she was gone from our lives.

I also can feel when someone close is in pain. I was at my grandmothers house and I had my earbuds in listening to music when my uncle came in. He looked completely normal to me. No sign of any physical/emotional pain. (Keep in mind I had music playing so I could hear nothing) I just felt this great sadness and almost fear like feeling come over me. It felt as if I couldn't take my eyes off anyone, as if something may happen. So when my Uncle left I removed my earbuds and asked my grandma if something was wrong with my uncle. It turns out he had gone through a breakup. I had no idea this had happened before that day but I still felt this way.

This happens every time I meet someone new, or I see a family member (if something is wrong). Would this be considered a gift/ability? Thanks!

You probably have the gift of empathy. You can feel the emotions of others around you, that is what empathy is. You're an empath, I'm quite convinced.

Gifts are interesting... For example, even being alive in and of itself is considered a gift.
It is something you had no control over that was given to you, and gives you the ability to affect your environment.
So, in answering to wether or not that specific ability you mentioned is considered a gift...
I would say it's better to view it as part of the gift of the life that you were given.

The ability you described sounds like classic empathy.
For example, the troublemaker... It's as if you sensed her intentions. When a person interacts with another person, they can't help but to interact with them on a energetic level as well.
The thoughts and intentions a person has affects how their energy intereacts.

If you have a person that is well meaning, but often gets in over their head, you tend to get the "on the fence" feeling about them, but you also tend to also get the good vibe from the good intentions.

If you get a person that has done bad things in the past, but realized the affect it has had on other people, and is trying to be better, but still has the old temptations, you have the "on the fence" feeling.

When you come across a self-serving, self-absorbed person, you immediately get the red flags, the warnings say "keep your distance. This person will take from you. Do not get involved if you an help it" vibe.

Those are just very basic examples, and it gets far more complicated from there.

The incident with your uncle is a MASSIVE indication of empathy.
I will also take the time to point out that, when a person is emotionally distressed, even if they look normal, their body reacts differently chemically.
The human body is designed to notice and react to these invisibles signals, wether we realize it or not.

One piece of experience I have that is similar to that of you and your uncle...
There was a person I was trying to date some time ago.
She liked me. Alot. I could feel it in my chest every time I talked to her.
However, because of situations I never found out about, she had to break it off with me.
She did it through e-mail, and I awoke from a dead sleep the SECOND she sent me the e-mail.
I felt it.

The point of the story is that... The closer you are to the person, as a empath, the deeper you feel their distress.
One important thing for you, moving forward, would be to find a way to balance your emotions... It's hard enough dealing with your baggage, to have to add other people's baggage as well.

In doing that, you actually make yourself more pleasant for other empaths, and other people, to be around. A place where others can come and rest and regain strength... Not where they get sucked in, and get handed more baggage.

In any case, those are my thoughts. Wether it is a gift or a ability is not relavant. What is relavant is how you decide to use it, and who you decide to be with it.

Hope that helps.
God bless, and be well.
