Empathy Or Coincidental?


I Google'd what I was feeling, and got directed to this site. I think I am an empath. Obviously you guys here know way more than I do so please guide me. Most of the posts of the people here said that they can feel what most people around them are feeling or pick up on a powerful emotion. I can't say that I can feel what others are thinking but it's more like I can feel what only one specific friend of mine is feeling/thinking. And I'm not too sure whether it's co-incidence or for real.

He other day I just started feeling confused, guilty or something. It's not something I can put my finger on but it was a funny feeling. It came out of the blue, from no-where. I tried to figure out why I was going through it and I never figured it out. I sent her a text MSG. To stop worrying about whatever it was that was bothering her and later she asked me how did I know what was going on? I couldn't answer her.

Recently, while studying, I flung my pen because I started to get angry and scared. I felt a pain that seemed to have paralyzed me. An hour later I got a call from one of her friends. She had met with an accident an hour ago.

Am I an empath or is this just coincidence? If I am an empath then how do I control it?

Hi Randy17,
I can get what your feeling. I have the same problem. It only happens once in a while but when one of my friends come by I can feel a change in the atmosphere, like I sense an emotion but its not mine. And I ask my friend a question to see if I felt what what he was feeling, and it usually is. It's only a slight feeling, and doesn't happen a lot. If you've found anything out about controling your power could you tell me please. I'd really appreciate it.

Well Hello there Randy17,
I happen to major in empathy. I have you know that you are NOT INSANE. What you are feeling is real and I am confident that you can unlock your full potential. Ever since I was a little, and I mean little, I could sense what was going on. Peoples emotions... What they were doing, and what they were thinking. My father, a firefighter, when I was three years old, I knew he was in a fire without talking to him. I would cry... I would fuss until he called and told us that the fire was out and that everything was going to be ok... (note it was my mother on the phone)...i immediately stopped screaming and was calm once again. Try controlling it by stopping to think about who and what it might be... THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO IS ACT UPON IT! Dont make a scene, make sure your in the right kind of mind-set...and think... You can do this hun...

You seem to be developing empathy, which can start with the people you are closest to. You feel a bond that tells you you are responsible for them and that if they hurt, your award is that you will too. Although this can be a heavenly gift, it can also be a nuisance. Because if this is just the beginning, think of how it will be when you can't stand to be in a crowded place for more than 5mins without feeling the horrid effects of an empathy-overload.

From reading your story it seems to me you could be devloping empathy. If your feeling only this one person's feelings you must be very close to this person to feel her emotions as your on. Have you actually stoped and thought about if you could feel other peoples emotions? 🤔 Sometimes we don't realize we feel others emotions as our on because we have lived with it all our lives.

randy17,Empath, only you can answer that. I hate shopping in crowded places. Does that make me an empath? Parties, I'm out the back-door, outside, getting fresh air. NYC, whoa, way too crowded, haven't been since a youngster.
I'm totally confused on the whole empath- thing. If I don't like crowds, does that make me empathic, or is that my genuine self? If I wake from a dream still feeling like I am that same character, am I empathic then, or do I just feel empathy for the person in my dream?
You see the dilema? Chicken or egg, your choice.
