Hey, I'm a 14 year-old kid from Kentucky and I'm an empath. But here's the thing when I'm around people I don't feel constantly bombarded with emotions. It's more like I'm in a stream and that I can pick out the person's emotions that I want to read. But that all goes to waste as soon as I touch someone. It's like a dam bursting. I've always felt close to someone even if I've never meet them before that day. I may talk to them and it would be like we've known each other our entire life.
People are always coming to me for advice whether it's because they are in a fight with a friend or they just need to get something off there chest. About a month ago a girl that I barely talked to just came up out of know no where and said "Help me." I took her into a room and we ended up talking for a good 3 hours about her problems. I still wonder why she chose me over some of her best friends, they were more experienced over some of the issues but in the end it worked out all right.
Sometimes I see small fights break out, and I don't know how but if I touch someone in it all their anger melts away and everybody goes home happy. Other times I can touch them and I might end up in the fight. Though when an adult tries to break it up I manage to keep everyone from getting into trouble even if they're black and blue or bleeding.
Also I can get a feeling when something bad was going to happen. When the world trade centers was plane crashed I was sitting in my class working, then all of a sudden I felt a wave of despair. At that time I though that it was cold air (I was only in 2nd grade), 10 minutes later the principle called over the phone telling all teachers to turn on their tv's and I saw a living hell. It felt as if I was right there in front of it all.
The main line is this, I fell like I can help people but at the same time I want them as far away as possible. It's tearing me up.
A friend of mine recently told me see was clairvoyant that she she's what things may look like it's not accurate but the meaning seems to come through for her.
Please if there are others like me give me a feed back, I can use any advice Good or Bad.
