I'm an empath. My mother is also. And I am ninety percent sure my stepdad is a psychic vampire.
For the last couple of weeks my mom and my step-dad have been fighting. And here lately I've been getting more and more frustrated and just plain angry.
I know that I'm empathic, my mother is also, but what I don't know is how to stop picking up the tension that seems to reside within the air in the house.
It happens all the time, they constantly fight. Usually it starts with yelling and ends up with the silent treatment on both parts. With me being in between both of them.
I love my little brother, but tonight I got the feeling of pure hatred for him, this isn't right, I don't hate him. I don't hate anyone. I'm at a loss for what to do. Nothing I try is working and it's not like they'll quite fighting so I have time to settle down, it's never constant either. Happy, sad, cautious, hatred, terror. The emotions are running rampant here, the only little peace I can get is going to my boyfriend's house where it's usually a relaxed happy atmosphere. I can't stay there all the time though.
If anybody has any idea on how to help me deal with this please, please tell me. Otherwise I think I'm going to go crazy.
