Am I An Empath? Or Just A Sensitive Misfit?


I am new to this site... I am 19 years old... And I am wondering whether or not I am an empath or have some sort of psychic ability or am I just an angry misfit who needs therapy? I ask because it is wearing me out to the point of exhaustion. I get angry and depressed a lot of the times... No I am not trying to be a psychic I am actually not happy with whatever it is I am since it is something that I can't really control and the only way that I can be myself is when I am just with one person or alone. So please don't leave negative comments because this is just me trying to find myself.

Ok here goes. There is this one girl I know at work that everytime I am in a room with her I get so uncomfortable to the point I get nervous and nauseous. I can't stand being around her at all nor look at her. I get such a negative energy from her. I get depressed just looking at her. I know that sounds mean and I feel bad but that is how I feel.

I found out that she has a lot of problems that she goes though daily. And it affects her daily life. I have a friend who has a lot of stress that she goes through with her life and I sense it in her but she denies it and doesn't want any kind of help from me. I get extremely uncomfortable in large crowds and nervous as well. And when I see someone I can tell what kind of person they are and whether or not they are happy by the way they look at me and how they talk within speaking to them for only 5 minutes.

I can see auras if I tried. It is an effort but I can sense the energy that it gives off which describes what kind of person they are. And they have to be in a certain place. Now I am not implying that I am at all psychic I am just curious. But a friend of mine who is psychic told me that people who have cold hands and feet tend to have some sort of psychic abilities... And my hands and feet have always been cold since I was little. I don't necessarily believe that hence the fact that I believe I just have poor circulation. One thing is for sure is that I do get moody for no reason and honestly I cry myself dry. Whenever I watch or see something sad on the news, sometimes for days maybe and that is partly the reason why I don't like watching the news. Another thing is I have people I just meet come in and talk to me like I've known them for years sometimes. And honestly I am in denial. I do put myself down a lot. And I do try to focus on myself more because I have a tendency to help people in need because it is in my nature. I do deny it. I don't know what I am.

People have told me I was weird or different. There have been times in which I have had de ja vu occur more than once. I used to be able to remember my dreams vividly when I was little girl but as I got older I tend to forget them. Except some certain times. In my dreams I have been conscious and was able to control myself in them. But I do get de ja vu a lot. And I am so sensitive whenever I am around people. Also I get a different array of emotions whenever I go to different places and meet different people. And there has been some instances when people do tell me they feel calm and happy when they are with me. I also have a natural love for nature and animals. Always loved them since I was little.

I would always skip school because I would get overwhelmed with the stress and anxiety that people give off from school. I used to smoke and drink a lot just so I could get by. Honestly, I don't know. For some reason over the years I have learned to be less conscious of everything around me because I block everything out. At least I try but sometimes it doesn't work. My father always tells me that whenever I am around people I always get depressed and he always tell me that it isn't me who is the problem its people and I think I am beginning to believe him somewhat.

Please help me. I don't know what to do because it seems the more I talk about it the less people understand. I know I sound like a crazy emotional little nutjob who needs therapy. And believe me I have tried therapy, been medicated, went to a mental institute which really made me a lot worse than it should and none of it worked for me. And it seems that the problem isn't me.

Trust me, you are not a misfit or a nutjob. I do honestly believe that you can feel the emotions of others, so you are an empath. What I think the problem is that you don't know how control your powers, and this fears you. Have you psychicly protected yourself. This will emable to feel the emotions of others, but you won't be consumed by them.
Next time you meditate, visualize yourself surrounded by in a cacoon of bright light. Say to yourself that this shield will be with you always, and it will counteract negative emotions.
Feeling emotions is not a negative thing, it can heal if put into good use.
I am clairsencient, so I can sence things, With my psychic shield up, I Can sence things, good and bad, but not be consumed by the negative. Try it.
I hope this helps.

I've been feeling spirits around me, good, and bad. What do I do, I can connect with what their feeling, and I am bothered by it. I can also hear them talking to me, but I can't see them.

Hey thanks everyone for your advice=] I feel as if though I am not alone... Because I have gone through a lot of therapy... It seems as though a lot of this stuff isn't me... It is the affect people have on me... All I need to know is how to control myself and develop my ability at the same time... Thank you all

It is as if you just wrote my story.
Im 18 and have gone through all of what you have just said
They put me on medication because of it
But the things I deal with still haven't changed
As we speak my hands are feezing (as always) and yeah I just blame it on poor circulation, because that is the "normal" way of thinking of it.

I honestly think we should talk through E-mail
Just because I can relate to everything you're saying

And it will make me feel better if I can talk to someone who understands me... And doesn't think I just attention.
And I think you can too

So (if you want) E-mail me at PolaroidKris [at]
I think we can help each other out

Your Not a NutJob, Youre less of one than all the people whos energy you are reading!
Cold hands and feet... I never heard that, I have the same thing.
Dont be down on yourself.
You are like me, weak, and afraid of yourself! I am uncomfortable around others too. I feel like they can tell, But they can't always.
Im not claiming to be one either, But we are!
I was sick once or twice a week when I went to public high school. What you just wrote made me understand why!
Thanks, and just give in.
I think I will try to as well.
We just need to learn to see the negative energy and not let it effect us!
Good Luck... PS youre a pisces huh? ❤

Also, the deja vu, I get more of it than anyone I know, and I feel its too much for just coincidence. I've been a loner for as long as I can remember because I feel at peace by myself compared to how stressed out and sick I feel around others. What usually helps me is listening to music, drawing, or practicing the violin. Try doing something that your good at or something that makes you feel better when you feel sad to detract yourself. I hope this helps you out a bit, I know how stressing it can be.

Who Am I,

If people truly tried to understand what you go through, no one would ever leave bad comments. It's okay if you feel somewhat "lost" honey. I have gone through it and I actually think many people have wondered who they were, but people forget or just ignore it and try to be what other people want them to be. About that girl that you can't stand seeing, I don't think you're being mean at all, you're just telling what you feel. Being mean would be to talk bad about her, and you are not.

You are psychic, so just accept it. It may sound mean but it's the truth we have to learn to accept, it took me a long time to accept it, and sometimes I would still wonder if I really was. I don't know about cold hands. I've known otherwise, my very experienced grandmother said so. When my powers started to "deepen" and get stronger, right before I started having visions, I noticed how my hands and feet would get red and hot. I asked her if it was because I was psychic and she told me that it was, then I touched her hands and they were hot as well.

Don't deny it, just live with it. You're causing yourself all this trouble and frustration for no reason at all, don't waste your time denying it, deep inside you know what you are and you don't need to even ask, all you're looking for is confirmation and there's nothing wrong with that, I went personally went through it too.

It may sound very mean, but here it goes, YOU are the problem. You just want to deny yourself, who you are, and blame yourself for it, and it's like you're scared of what people will think. You're not the first person to go through it, nor the last, I went through a situation very very similar to yours, and still do. I can feel other people's emotions, things I see make me sad, I used to cry so much with the things I saw on the news, I get deja vus a lot, most of the things that happen to you I have gone through and I tell you from self experience. People have always pointed out I was "different". My own mother even said so, that I was a very different girl. Well, from what I just read, you seem like a very sad little person and you shouldn't be there's no reason to be pessimistic. I am a naturally happy person, I was born that way, always smiling, even if all my friends are mad at me, even if I have ALL these problems that want to drown me, I am able to smile. People have always pointed it out, that everytime they look at me they see me smiling, and it makes other people have an easier time with me. So, you affect other people's moods too, by being sad you make other people sad as well. If I can keep myself from being sad, so can you. Sometimes I have these moments when I'm alone that just wrap me up and it's like I'm in depression, and I just get rid of them, they're just here to make my life worst so I just find reasons to be happy. Just be patient with yourself, all will pay off. And please, accept yourself, everything will be much easier, I promise you.:)

If you want my help, (if you didn't think I was too mean, sorry it's because I usually say what people don't want to hear but already know but deny) my email is: allie19931 [at]

I know what you're going through and I understand you, but that's no reason to make your existence harder.

I must tell you it's kind of scary how much your experiences remind me of mine. I feel the exact same way you do, I get angry, upset, happy, depressed at random moments when I enter a room full of people. When I'm in or around a large crowd I feel very overwhelmed with emotions and I just want to get away from them. When I talk to a new person I can tell what type of person they are from a small conversation with them. When I watch the news or flick passed it I immediately feel depressed and anxious. I'm naturally a very very warm person, I run a temperature of 99. 5 normally, and yet I have cold feet and hands a lot, which actually surprises people who know me very well because they know me to be practically a heater. I don't know if these are psychic abilities but they can be very annoying from time to time, your not alone.

Awww... You poor thing you sound so stressed! For the most part I would say that you are psychic or an empath or whatever you want to call it. I've gotten a lot the same things as you. When I am around people with a lot of problems just looking at them results in nausea and a kind of stressed feeling, even though these people are really close friends of mine. I've also had de ja vu that actually happened as well. I think that also can understand what you mean when you say you "block everything out" because when things got overwhelming for me I tried to do the same thing, but it ended up making me avoid school and groups for the longest time just because I got so tired and stressed being around people. So I tried praying to god to protect me when I went out with friends and stuff. Since then even though I still get it a bit I don't get over whelmed. I'm not trying to be preachy or anything I'm just telling you what helped me.

Anyway I hope that helped...
God bless
