Learning that I was an Empath


Hello everyone, my name is Pelagie Aggark and I'm new to this site for people who are psychic or empath like me. Ok let me start. When I was little, I was a loner, no one would want to be with me to play with me, so most of the time I would play by myself or with my little brother when he was a baby. I would get these strange feeling when I'm with one person or more so, most of the time, when I'm around people I would be quite like a shy person from these feeling I get from them until I get distracted by something I like (when I'm distracted I become myself instead of having other people's feelings)

As I grew older my connection with my relatives got stronger and from time to time I would have their feelings of sadness, happiness or other feelings, but still I didn't understand why I kept having these feeling from people when I'm around them. When one of them were angry I would sense it right away and get kind of scared of what they might do to me or others, when they're tired I would get bored or tired, when they're sad I would feel sad and show sympathy towards them.

Before my grandmother died (my dad's mom) I sensed that something I loved was not going to be around any longer, I was confused of this unexpected feeling I had until the night I heard about my grandma's passing. So my parents, my brothers and me went to the health center and right away I felt this heavy unbearable feeling of depression in the air, before we went into the room I was already crying because of the pain of sorrow. I was standing beside my parents with my brother who looked like he saw something that no one else can because he's feelings was a mixture of happy and sad one, when he looked at me he told me he can see my deceased grandmother standing beside my grandfather. He didn't tell anyone about this except for me because the both of us are close even now.

A few years ago during the early winter, I had this really bad feeling that someone that I looked up to after the summer games in Rankin Inlet (this is a town I'm living in now) was going to pass on. That night I received a phone call from my mom that her cousin George Innukshuk was no longer alive, no one knew how he died not even the nurses, after I hanged up the phone I ran up to my parents room and cried. My aunt and my brother came to the room I was in and asked me what happened, I told them that my mom's cousin had died and that I knew some bad news was to come to me. My mom came home that same night and I told her what I told my brother and my aunt, I also told her that I was scared of what I sensed before the phone call, she told me that I wasn't the only one with these abilities and I already knew that I wasn't the only one who had them.

When my brothers or sister gets really angry, I would try and not burst with the full amount of anger from them I received, if I did I wouldn't be myself, I would start yelling, screaming and sometime throw stuff at them which I wouldn't mean to do it on purpose. My siblings would get scared of me with my sudden burst of anger and fury that they would stay quiet for a while or leave to cool off, we didn't know I was an empath because we didn't know anything about it.

When I'm around so many people in a small place, I would be somewhat frustrated with these mixed feeling in the air and wouldn't be myself but someone else's, so I just be up in my room or go out for a while and just hang with one to four friends because that way I'll be able to be myself. I sometimes get one of their feelings instead of myself which is kind of confusing who it belongs to, me or one of them? Which ever it was I didn't know.

Just last year I was able to know what my ability was after looking it up in one of my favourite web sites. When I got home from work, I told my mom what my ability was after so many years of confusion and frustration. Before I knew about my ability I would still be confused of these feelings I get from people around me, sometime I would be confused of who I am which was ridiculous. But know that I know about my ability I'm able to control them and sometime it gets out of hand, sometime my friends would freak when I tell them what their feeling. This is all I can tell you on how I learned about my ability, I know most of you won't understand it well because of my english which I'm not really good at. Hope you all have a good day ^-^

Anger is not to be blamed on empathy, I am empathatic as well and we all know that anger is a secondary emotion that can be controlled, I tend to be more passive aggressive because I am so intuned to other people to offset them... Since empathy isn't something you can really ditch... I think you'll know what I speak of it due time.

I have empathy too. I'm only 14, so when the anger overwhelms me... I get grounded. 😢
Good luck with this

I have been in counseling on and off for at least 20 years. I just could not figure out what was wrong with me. After watching the show pyschic challenge I realized that I was an empath. I seem to have a very difficult time holding down a job due to the immense emotional overload of this.
My family thinks I am a free loader and it has taken a terrible toll on my reputation. At my last therapy session I spoke to my counselor about what I realized. I am very overwhelmed with this information right now and she told me I have a lot of work to do. I really do not know where to start.
Are there any good on line groups or help available for us. Since this is a huge personality trait to manage and deal with. Plus I would like to be able to have my family and friends understand what is going on with me.
I am very concerned about holding down a job since this emotional overload is too much on me and I seem to only be able to work for 6 months to a year at most. The financial stresses have been a huge stress on top of everything else. I constantly feel emotionally exhausted.
I recently started taking zoloft which has helped but I am not sure this is the path to take.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I know what you are going through. I spent most of my life a really angry, depressed person because I did not realize what I was experiencing. I would rarely go out with friends when I was younger because I had a hard time dealing with being in crowds. Even though I now have a name for what I am, I am still trying to come to grips with it. I find myself cringing sometimes when I meet new people because I know their dirty little secrets. I have a hard time knowing which emotions are mine and not someone elses. I have to bite my tongue a lot when I talk to my kid's father and not scream "LIAR!" when I know he is feeding me a line of BS. People have a hard time dealing with me and being around me because they feel like are their private issues are laid bare before me. I do however have SO many people (sometimes strangers) telling me their deepest, darkest secrets. Then when they are done, they always say, "I don't know why I just told you that!" The life of an empath is not an easy one, but I strive to put it in a positive light everyday.

i understand your english quite well I don't know much about phichic abilities or anything about seeing ghost but I used to see misc. Things in my soon to come future in my dreams and I just read the articals here for fun but I think it would be good for you to try to increase you phichic abilities by self teaching your self how to focus your ability on one person or widen your ability to sence the mode of more people

hi most people know when something bad is going to happen before it does they get a bad feeling something is wrong. I would say your going through this. Hi my name is Katie I see ghosts and I hear voices in my head telling me true things. I also have dreams which tell me my future and what bad things will happen before they happen. There are noises in my house. I play that game someone think of a number keep it to yourself and let the other person guess it. I can guess the number right every time even if its colours as well. Its the way of life it doesn't scare me seeing ghosts because I bet there scared as well. They do scare the life out of me sometimes when they walk into me or run into me. There not harmful all they do is stare and watch you for 2 seconds then go. I get cold shivers so I guess that's when there here.
I recognise one ghost maybe from a dream or past life the ghosts are teenagers.
