Is This Empathy Or Something Else?

 

Am I an empath? That's the question I kept asking myself. I've other people's articles and their lives describing empathy and I also read from other sites. Still, I never found the answer I'm looking for, and that's why I'm here, publishing my own story.

When I was 6, I started feeling my friend's emotions, but only what they feel for me. When one of my friend's said that her drawing looks ugly, I also said it was ugly because she said it herself. Then, my heart starts pumping and I feel like like I was scared because I was hated and by her. The next thing happened was her face looks gloomy and started whispering to her other friend about me.

As I grew, (probably 10-11 something) I felt what other people felt to others. When we were praying (I'm a christian), my eyes are wide opened and so is my friend's. She looked at our teacher who's praying and scowled at him. I felt her hatred and anger.

I'm 13 now and when I look at others and their happiness in groups, I feel like drained, as if they took away all my energy from me. I always thought this was jealousy because they belong in "high groups" and I don't, but I'm not sure.

Most of the above are about hatred and anger, but that counts, right? So am I an empath or is this just my instinct? But even if this is other than empathic, I want to learn and improve it.

Thanks again for the nice comments.:3

Axel21, I read your story about Light and Dark and something about spirit guides. What are they?

it is possible for an empath to hurt others with the negative energy, most just don't know how to.
I am not aware of how to do it, I merely know when my body wants to.

I don't think so. Unless there are other Empaths around. However, I am not entirely sure.

Can Empaths also hurt other people by transferring negative energy into them? I heard some Empaths can do this.

It's ok. I'm here to help 😁

I believe that there are Empaths that can heal but I'm not sure if all Empaths have that ability. There are many types of Empaths and many have a combination of the different types. There are those that can feel what animals are feeling, plants, healers, etc.

So for your career, I think that you can go for anything. I'm sure that your abilities will come in handy at anything you do 😁

So with empathic powers I and/or somebody else have the powers of healing? (Don't worry if I ask too much questions, I learn fast. 😊)

Being an Empath, you have the ability to help others out when they most need it where you can help friends and families when they most need it. I read somewhere that Empaths are healers and as a career choice, they would do great in the medical field. Other career choices are therapists or counselors.
For me, I am pursuing Veterinary and hope to use my Empath abilities to help animals and their owners.
I hope this helped. If you have any questions, let me know 😁 Although I am no expert by any means and my Empath abilities aren't quite high yet.

Thanks for the comments guys. I'm kind of happy to hear that I'm actually an Empath. 😁

I also have some more questions. What can I do with Empathy? I tried taking the job as an "Empath" but I really, really suck at it. Are there any other things I can do with it?

I think you are an empath as well. I'm still new to all of this, even though I've known I was different for a while. But for the most part, those people were a part of your everyday interactions. So naturally you will feel what they feel. Hopefully you won't end up like me- I only feel things from people I'm strongly bonded with, however, that also comes on a physical sense as well. Whenever my friends are in pain, I will feel it as though it was my own pain. Just as their anger will be my own anger. The fact that you've recognized it now is a good thing, because it will save you a lot of trouble later. Until you get more control over differentiating what feelings are yours and which are not, I find that it helps to work your way into small groups, Until you can get used to it. Then continue to expand your group. It's helped me, and I'm still learning... If I can be of any assistance to you in the future, do not hesitate to ask.

To me, it sounds like you are an Empath. You are able to pick up on others' emotions where the feelings of others feel like your own. Does that make sense?

I believe I am Empath as I can feel the feelings of other people around me. At first, I used to think that everyone had the same ability. When that was proven wrong, I thought I was bi-polar. When that was proven wrong, I researched and found out about Empaths.

I feel the same when I am around crowds as well and most of the time, I am overwhelmed by all these feeling that I start getting headaches.

I see being an Empath a gift. You are more aware of your surroundings and that can really help. Here's an article that can help you: http://www.askgrace.com/psychic_advice/0641_being_empath.htm

I hope my comment helped. 😁
