I'm 13 years old, and I have recently discovered I am somewhere along the lines of an empath. Odd things have happened to me from the time I was very young, but nothing has really clicked into place before about a month or two ago.
I realized that the weird experiences just grew more pronounced; up until the point when my abilities now include being sensitive to other's emotions, personalities, and intents... As well as being sensitive to certain types of energy (and I've never found anybody who could feel the energy too, or any mention of it online, etc), sometimes picking up random little pieces of thought from people. There are some other things, but I'll explain that in greater detail to anybody who is willing to hear it and help.
Basically these things have escalated from feeling strange energy the past few years and seeing things darting out of the corner of my eye to the thoughts just very recently. Also, I've only recently discovered one of my very good friends has abilities of his own, though very different from mine, and he had picked up that I am the way I am a couple months before even I did. Another one of my friends dreams entire days which comes true, minute for minute, at an unpredictable future date.
While I always believed in some truth to special abilities, this new information and proof is just so overwhelming... And I know I have this gift for a reason. I want to help people, just help however I can to ease someone's pain. That is why I am the way I am. So I want to refine my abilities, and learn to control them. Is there anyone out there who can help me?
