I Need Help Coping With Empath Feelings


I'm a 14 year old girl in high school. I found out that I was an empath last year. I had the "symptoms" I guess you could say. When I was in the 6th grade my left arm was numb and my heart felt kind of weird. I knew that was how you felt when you have a heart attack. I didn't have one. Then I began to tell when my friends are down and when they wanted to cry but they had a smile.

Also when everyone was depressed over something- so would I but I had no reason to be depressed. Then I somehow got a scar on my arm I didn't do anything. I like being an empath because it helps a lot of my friends, I can relate to them and understand them a lot better than anyone else could. Then I began to have head aches. I would ask someone if they had it and yes. I searched "feeling others feelings and pain" and I found "empath" as the result. I can only "feel" the feelings of love, anger, and sadness. The main 3 emotions. I still think it's a curse but the only reason I think that is because I don't know how to control it. I really need help. I need to get these under control. I need help before collage because I need to focus on my grades -I need to think about my school work. I really need help. Please...

You will never control it except if you trust it, believe it, accept it, stop been afraid of it, bacouse the last think you could call this is a CURSE a gift is never a curse maybe I have this one too cause I cantruly see through people like they are open books for me but I do not really care for empathy I am mostly interested in my element fire her self is my power and I just want to tell you that you have to trust and accept who you are... Mediation does miracles and you should try it. But one huge advice if you ever give up you will either have to start over or you can even lose it for good

Gl to you if you have questions about something of it feal free to ask me even if there are 2 years passed

Okay. It is good to know I'm not the only one like this. I am a 12 year old girl and all this happens to me to! I was starting to get used to it when I started feeling bad energies and I could tell when people were going to try to start a fight, or scream, cry, pass out. It is getting weird. All you need to do is think of the person in a happy form. Think of the person at a time when they are happy. Or the opposite of what they are feeling. And I were anything with a cross on it. It seems to help. I have more than one 'gift' as people would call it. I hope this helps you. 😊

The good thing is that you aware of it now. I was never aware of it at your age, and managed to convince myself that it's something everyone else goes through. Because of that, I ended up suffering a lot of anxiety. Now however, knowing what it is and that I'm not alone, has helped a lot and I've been able to overcome numerous obstacles.
Guided meditation is an idea. Also, don't ever feel bad if you don't want to be empathic towards someone. It's okay to shut it off. Before I learned to control it, I would do a lot of things in which I was void of it (i.e., watching movies) If you have anyone around you that is aware and respectful enough, TALK IT THROUGH. It's good to get it all out there.

Yeah, I'm in university now and it was an interesting experience going through grade school as an empath. I agree with soulcarnival. That helped me a lot, and if you start to feel overwhelmed, just close your eyes and breathe deep. Focus on nothing but your breath. Good luck!

you should try meditating, if you relax you'll feel at peace. I recommend you get a stone. It doesn't have to be one compatible to your element/horoscope, but the results are better. But if you feel a particular stone calling out to you, it means it wants you to get him or her because believe it or not, they have feelings. Black obsidian is good for developing abilities, warding off - energies and turns them to +, protection against psychic attacks, which is the feelings you're getting from others... 😲
