Would You Consider This As Empathy?


I have always been a bit intuitive, but lately I have realized I may be empathic. My mother and I are very good at "reading" people and recently I made the connection to having empathy. I have also realized that when other people are feeling extreme emotions, like sadness or grief, I tend to feel like that myself for no reason at all. I even scare myself sometimes because I am a very peaceful and calm person and I tend to get a bit touchy and over-emotional when this happens.

An example of me feeling what someone else is feeling is, the other day a teacher walked in to school and as soon as I saw her I felt a rush of deep sadness. It lasted for a very short time but I was pretty stunned, it was kind of like a slap in the face. I later found out from the teacher there was a death in their family.

That's more of a major case though, normally I can just tell what kind of mood a person is in. I also get really tired when I am around a lot of people or when the people around me are pretty down. I get tired all the time and it doesn't make sense because I make sure I get a good amount of sleep every day as I still am in school. I can't concentrate otherwise because I start to daydream and I get very quiet and thoughtful.

I am seeking other people's opinions, does this seem like empathy? I would also like to know some methods for dealing with it because I am beginning to worry I don't really know myself anymore. This being said, I would like to improve it as well. So if anyone has any advice or any information at all, please comment! Thank you for your time!

Hey, thanks for asking. Unfortunately, I can't say I have. I actually have something that I really need help with at the moment. I've had a dream, and I'm not sure what to do with it.

How are things with you?

Whitebuffalo: Thanks for your help and the websites! They are very helpful:) I didn't really know there were "types" of empaths before!

Mel33: Thank you, but I sincerely doubt I have done "better" than you. I am 15, and only now have I realised. I would imagine that I should know myself by now, but due to this occurance, I am not so sure. Thanks for the heads up about the energy vamps! I will definately have to research that further.

You're doing better than me. It took years for me to realize that not all the emotions I experience our my own. It caused a lot of problems in my life. However, once I did realize it, things started clearing up. I was better able to protect myself and help others somewhat. Then I started experiencing physical empathy, but that typically only happens if I have a strong connection with someone.
Be very cautious of energy vamps.

Yes. You are an Emphatic person. I suggest you look up the different KINDS of empathy, though.


Thank you.

Thanks a lot for your help Switt!
I tried the meditation and it seemed to work very well, I didn't feel as drained as I normally do. I will have to work on it though. Good luck for yourself too!

Hi, JaGsTa, I myself and a new empath as well. This is most definitely empathy from what I can tell and what happens to me.

But the way I deal with these types of emotions running through me is by meditating, I mainly meditate to get my mind back in order, what I've done during the day, but also I am learning to 'ground' myself and strengthen my chakara's through meditation methods.

I'm a rather peaceful person, myself, but I can very easily judge people and detect emotions, and if I'm being touched by the person or brushed by them there is sometimes a chance that I will catch their emotions as well.

The most that I can offer to you is to learn how to meditate, and build yourself up, I like doing this by imagining a white light radiating down towards you, (at first it may take awhile to imagine), covering you in a cone like-shape covering all your boy. Then just imagine darkness and bad thoughts and emotions going away from you and embrace the light.

It helps me to do that, though I've only started - but I'm learning more and more by reading stories and learning about chakara's and grounding and stuff, and I'm hoping to expand my abilities.:D Good luck to you, and merry meet.
