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?
