Hello, I honestly don't know if I am a Empath, yet I have many characteristics of one. While at school, my mood always fluctuates. One moment I can be happy then angry. People say I'm very moody and all over the place. It all depends on who ever is near me and their mood. Empathy is inherited but I have no idea if any of my family members are an Empath and I don't want to ask because then I'll feel crazy.
People say I understand them easily and that I am easy to talk to about anything. Many people come to me with their problems. I sit and listen to them, while doing so I can see myself in their situation and my mood mirrors the person who is telling me about their problems. People say I have a deep understanding of helping people about their problems, but I don't even try.
If I see anyone in pain or hurt, a great deal of sadness overrides me to where I must help the person who is hurt, in pain, or crying. No matter what the person does to me, I must help them. Watching movies that have torture or strong violence saddens me. I have no idea if I am really an Empath, but my best friend see's Aura's and she says that she can see a spiritual awareness in mine. If this is true does this mean I really am an Empath?
She says that my Aura is different form others and always changes frequently and she says it could be because of all the emotions that rush over me on a day to day basis. I would really like some advice because I'm really confused, I barely even know what my own emotions are, it seems that I take on everyone's emotions at school to where I am exhausted when I get home.
Can anyone help me figure out if I really am an Empath?
