Do I Have A Power?


I am 14 years old and I am able to read people's emotions. I can tell what they are hiding and who they really are. I thought it would be really fun to have this 'power', but then it got really overwhelming and now it bothers me to know how everybody feels. I'm also into all that 'witch' stuff, but never practiced Witchcraft. I also want to know if there are other people out there that are just like me. I don't know if this helps, but I'm a Libra. I'm hoping that I will get an answer to this and get some help on how to control it. Please let me know if this is a 'power'.

God, this thing says that I need to have a minimum of 1200 characters, so I'm just going to babble for a while. You don't need to read this. Um, my favorite color is Black, and I love to read. I hate injustice. I am not your typical teenager. I hate 'popular' people. I hate liars. I like cookies. I'm very random. I'd rather cuddle up with a book than go shopping. I can't stand it when people have grammar and spelling mistakes, even if I make some mistake too. I'm very weird. I always think things like: 'Why is the sky blue? What if a million snakes dropped on us right now'. Aha, did I mention that I loved to read?...

This is actually really cute as I am a Libra and was about that age when I became an Empath. It made it difficult to make freinds as I felt that nobody understood me, so most of my freinds were older, but then they didn't take my advice seriously because I was too young.

This gift comes with a great deal of wisdom and maturity, I know how you feel but embrace this gift. I am sure someone in your family is a secret Empath either a grandparent or your mother for me it was my mother but she was more on the negative side of letting the feelings create fear. Me I learned through much training to distance myself from the emotions of others, as you have too to avoid depression.

You will also as you grow older dislike crowds if you don't learn to control it because it draws energy in order to read everyone, you will hear voices from time to time but no worries usually empaths are divinly protected so you will be fine. The voices are often subconcious chatter, or interdemensional wisdoms, or divine insight. You will learn things quickly and intimatley because part of being an Empath is having the answers to the hard questions thefore you will be required to go through the lessons to learn the proper answers. Just remember not everyone you read is supposed to be helped by you. Some have to deal with their own problems but you will feel who is right and who is wrong to help over time if you need more help email at aplight09 [at]

omg I love your second paragraph it was so funny I totally know how it feels not to have the 1200 characters its a drag but yea I think our signs maybe have to do with something with our abilities I'm not sure though my sister is a Libra and she seems to know when I'm upset 😊

Sounds like, to me, that you could be an Empath, I have a friend just like you.

I agree with Chetyre. People are sensitive and sometimes it gets to me to. I try to find out ways that help calm it down. Maybe you could focus on something else instead of what you are feeling? What I try to do is push the people away with my mind and act like nothing is going on.

P.S. Please don't think of your abilities as "powers." They are gifts. Don't worry about getting it wrong though, most people do when they are new to this.

Well...I think everyone is sensitive to some degree or another to the emotional energies of others.

The trick is to make a conscious effort to realize that this is how things are and to learn to just tune it out... Just like how you learn to tune out the teachers. (It's a fine art, you know)

I have found that if I find myself getting overwhelmed by others like at a gathering, you can walk around and go to someplace quiet, even if it only for a few minutes.

Try going into the restroom for a few moments of peace.
It takes time to develop resistance to such influences and you just need to take it day by day.

P.S: By the way... You asked about what if a million snakes dropped on us?

Try thinking, "What if a million SPIDERS dropped on us right now?" UGH! Uber creepy. 😨
