The Diary Of A Teenage Empath


First, I want to apologize for submitting so many stories at once.

If anything, I hope this goes through, because I need help on this subject. And I know, What a cheesy title for a story! Hey, it's pretty catchy.

Let me tell you a little about myself.

I go by Scarlet Marie (obviously), although it's not my real name.

I am usually a very quiet person. But ever since I've became close to a few people, my personality has changed drastically. I am just as loud and bubbly as them!

Also, I have trouble paying attention in class, although I hear what

The teacher is saying, I'm also daydreaming. My teacher was amazed when I answered a question correctly, and I wasn't even paying any attention.

And if any of my other stories get posted, you'll know that I have certain moments where I sense something is wrong, or if someone is mad or depressed, and such.

Today, I became depressed for no reason at all. Then, as I was talking to my boyfriend, I sensed something, I asked him if everything was okay, ans he told me he was depressed. That shocked me. I've had moments where I know the stress of my mom, the pain of my friends, and the happiness of a little girl. And when they all come together at once, it's too much. I can't stand it, and the anger I receive get taken out on everyone. Not only that, but sometimes I just sit there and cry for no reason. I've even picked up suicidal thoughts.

How can I control this? It's a great advantage, and it helps out a lot, but I don't want it to take over.

What can I do?

If you feel peoples' negative emotions, just pray: "God! Our past, present and future is in your strong and loving hands... We trust you to guide and protect us, and send your Holy Angels to us whenever we need help. Because you said that you came to save the sinners! We pray in Jesus' name. Amen." We don't have to carry the weight of the world on our small shoulders, because Jesus is already doing that... All we have to do is walk behind Him. God bless our freedom!

For as long as I can remember "my" emotions and feelings where so much to take I truley thought I was crazy. I would drink to go numb so I wouldn't feel anything. Until recently I started asking myself " are these my emotions and feeling?" Ever since I started doing that I have reached a calm. Turns out 99% of these feelings and emotions were not mine. I still struggle a little with what's mine and what are others but just as ashd9 stated you do have to first take control by asking yourself are these mine. It works. Good Luck!

Yes, yes it does. I'll try that sometime today! Thank You! All these emotions are very overwhelming, even giving me suicidal thoughts as well as anger.
Thank you very much.

Yes, shielding is a must. I am currently practicing that myself, because I can tell you from experience, it is very dangerous to be an empath who can't make a shield. It can make you physically sick, and I've heard of people nearly dying and having heart attacks because the energy was so overwhelming.
I'm not trying to scare you, sorry. And it's not very likely that you'll be in such an intense situation, but just realize it's a possibility.

But since shielding requires a lot of patient practice for most people, I would suggest "observation meditation" in the meanwhile. One method is, you sit down to meditate and clear your mind, but have some sort of sound near you (like a ticking clock). And instead of concentrating on the sound, distance yourself from it. Become an observer. Don't receive the sound as a sound, but as vibrations.
Once you become good at this, you can use it when you're empathing something negative. Push it away from yourself, and become an observer instead of absoring it.
Does that makes sense?

Shields, shields, shields! There are a lot of experienced empaths on this site who will tell you as well - you need to shield yourself from negative energy. What you have is a wonderful gift, something that can be used for fantastic purposes, but you have to be able to turn it off. It's kind of like being able to play the piano beautifully - it's wonderful, but you wouldn't survive if you had to sit and play the piano 24 hours a day.
Mental/energy shields is a good way of "clocking out." It blocks the emotion around you and keeps you protected when you choose to put one up. I've heard that experienced empaths can even let specific energies through, and keep others out.

Shielding is something I am still learning about too. I do it like this: Focus and center yourself, such as watching a candle, listening to calming music, or meditating. Then imagine a great bright white light in your center, and make it expand to form a bubble around you.

Ta da! You are protected. Your shield is as strong as you believe it to be.

Good luck my friend! And congratulations! 😊

To first take control I simply asking myself, "Is this my emotion?" It seems to work pretty well. Not much for crowds and such but if it's a few people or you alone, it does the trick:)
