This is my first time on a site like this. I believe that I am empathetic. I see and feel the auras of people. This allows me to be a likable kid at my school because I see how the group acts and feels so I can fit right in. I don't know if being empathetic allows me to do this, but I also can say things right before other people say them. Almost like I'm taking the words out of there mouth.
I'm on this site because I don't know for sure if I am empathetic. I feel that I am and that I can use it to help people. Maybe become a therapist or an actor. Every one I know believes I am empathetic. I even had a face reader say I am, and I didn't even talk to her! She just walked up to me and said that I'm very in tune with people and their emotions.
Being the empathetic person that I think I am, I always have to be careful who I am around because I sort of become that person. Let's say that I am super happy and peppy (which is how I usually am) then I walk up to a group of emos. I suddenly get very sad, and who I am changes.
I would love some help on how I can control this if it is possible. Being in school, it makes it hard to be myself considering how many people there are and how diverse they all can be. Please help!
