Not The Usual Empath


So yes I am an empath. I can sense the feelings of others and negative energy does hurt me. Empaths, I have read all over that they are very caring and often don't know how to take care of themselves sometimes. For me it is very different, although when I do feel someone's in a bad mood I do change my words, movements, and softness of voice. I don't like caring for others in fact I very much only like to be alone and take care of myself. I prefer to shut out their emotions as best as possible so I can feel normal. Going to the mall is not that fun anymore unless I go with my friend Kristen, her energy always makes me feel good and full of energy. Sometimes if I'm around her too much I often get swallowed by all that positive energy it makes me feel high, the same thing for my cousin Joe. I only really like being around that kind of energy so I put up walls to everyone else because I'm too afraid to let them in and often people tell my friends there scared of me. I'm not goth nor emo, I'm just normal looking. Is it possible that I'm sending out a negative energy to keep them away? Also all the sites I have read are about the very affectionate empaths so if you know any that cover my type it would help a lot.

I also can predict when bad things are going to happen. If its really bad it starts to hurt, but I can never tell what's going to happen only how bad its going to be. I can never predict anything good, which I suppose is okay because it would ruin the surprise. I was thinking that maybe I only feel the bad because its like a way to survive better then the average human, what do you guys think?

Thank you all for your help. I'm sorry I could not say my thanks sooner, I have been very busy. I do take all of this advice to heart.

I know how that feels, I'm the same as yours most of the time but mine tends to be much worst. I tend to shut their emotions as well as mine, that makes me lost all my positive emotions. To make much worst, instead of healing it seems like I absorbs their life-force and can easily project sickness into others. My mother was negative 24/7, I think that was the reason. I'm doing meditation now and I think it helped because I've healed one of our pet recently, although it backfired on me making me weak.

That's how I am sometimes. Whenever someone's in a bad mood, it affects me, and I have to get away from that person so it wouldn't. My friends are all positive, funny people, so whenever I'm in a bad mood thanks to someone else, I hang out with them and soon I'm in a good mood again. For empaths like yourself and me, being around positive people helps A LOT. If your around negative energy, block it out. I sometimes block it out by listening to my iPod. 😁 but about your predictions, accept them, don't ignore them. Tell someone about them that you can *trust*, because if you don't, then you'll end up with one hell of a headache that Advil can't help with.__.
Hope I helped!

The people would be drawn away from you because your aura must have a lot of negativity in it from your daily life, and/or you must be putting out a vibe saying "Stay away" or "I want to be alone".
Everyone can pick up on subliminal messages that we do unconsciously, although you have those people who completely ignore them.

Try cleansing your aura daily or every other day. It will help you get rid of all negative energies attached to you.

If left un-purified, you can go straight into depression or worst. You may feel invincible now, but it's that type of thinking that leads to down fall. Purification and protection are things that all empaths should focus on, along with other mechanisms that I'm not going to mention because it's going to take to long and I don't have time.
Being an empath, you need to learn how to control it. You don't have control now until your able to do what you want, on will, every time or 99% lol. Nothing is 100% sure.

If you want to talk more about empathy, just email me.

That's normal to me too. I have to be away from people to be myself. I also draw to people that have good positive energy. To be drawn inward is to be normal, the difficult part is trying to find other positive people. We live in a society that dwells on negativity and materialism. All I can say is try not to put up too many walls as to not alienate yourself from others. Remember people's moods change and if you meet someone that is in a bad mood for a moment and you write them off you may be missing out on a good thing.

Sounds pretty normal to me. Just like allmylife1024 I grew up around a lot of negativity. It took me years to finally admit I was sensing feelings that most people don't. Trying to open yourself up more to others and be more outgoing is a real struggle.

I could tell you my whole life story, but the point is your feelings and reactions aren't those of some different kind of empath. You've had a realisation of what you can perceive, that is a big step. The question now is, what do you want next? Do feel like your are doing what you need to be, are you on your way to using this to be a happier person?

I assure you the more negativity you can let go of, and focus on more positive things the better you will feel. It's not easy, especially in our society today, but there are ways to block out some of those things if you want, and of course surrounding yourself with good people helps. It sounds like you have good friends, keep them close. If there is anything you want to learn, there are always others willing to help. Good luck!

i know what you are saying. When people in my family have a really negative energy it makes me feel really bad and kind of puts me into a bad mood too when I was in a good mood that day. I get the over postive friends too and I thought I was an empath and I get anxious in crowds. When I looked it up I have clarisentence aka espn where I just know what's going to happen and have dejvu and when I was younger I only had the empath thing so maybe your just devolping take time to look things up and meditate.
