My Empathy A Curse Or A Gift

 

I've been am empath all my life. I just never knew what it was. I sometimes feel as if it is a gift, but other times I feel it is a curse. I realized that I can't shut t empath off. I've tried some stuff but I hasn't really worked. Don't get me wrong I love being an empath, but I hate it when I get negative emotions. My school is full of negative people so I get a lot of that. The emotion just sticks to me until an emotion stronger that that overpowers it. Anyways, recently my friend at school has been having really bad problems with her boyfriend. She hides it from everyone, and by first glance you can't see how far off she is. I can tell though. As soon as I walk into a room the she is in I get a very upset/frustrated feeling from her. I asked her what was wrong, and we had a long conversation about it. The longer we talked the better she felt, but I had a sudden knot in my stomach, like you get when you do something bad. I asked my friend about it and she told me that when she is upset she gets that feeling. I didn't know that so it kind of scared me. I feel happy to help anyone so at those moments I feel it is a gift.

A problem I have had with empathy is being around really negative people. We all have someone like that in our life. Well, it makes me feel really mad and aggravated when I'm around negative person. It messes up my whole mood. For example, I went to the mall with my mom one day. I was happy that she had finally agreed to take me. As soon as I got into the mall and into a crowd and I suddenly felt very angry. My mom began to speak to me and all I heard was attitude, and I know it was wrong of me but I for no reason began to argue over nothing with her. She ended up pushing me up against the escalator side and yelled at me. It sucks because Ken someone is directly mad at me, and I'm already made it makes things worse. Another problem is that I tend to absorb other's emotions, good or bad. Sometimes I feel that my empathy is a gift other times a curse. Any advice?

this was the article that made me finally understand what I was. Empathatic skills frightened me and so many people I know have negative emtions and I hated how I could never be happy because my eotions weren't mine, their emotions became mine. My friend was concerned and found this website and realized I wasn't alone, this article is my inspiration. Thank you.

Fighting dark entoties can be a frightening experience but it can really put some andrenaline in your blood. Of course you would have to go through the trouble of finding a demon 😉

When I get too angry, I try to clear my head and meditate until I reurn to normal. Well shutting down emotions is not very good idea.

Unfortunately in today's society there seems to be lots of negativity floating around. And unfortunately for us empaths we have to find ways of dealing with it.
While mildly depressing at times I found that in order to block out negative emotions/energy you have to learn how to shield yourself from this.
Just a quick search on the web should give you sufficient advice on the basics of shielding.
Hopefully this helps you in some way.
S.P

[at] KrisLove yeah makes sense. I'll try y best not to take her pain but I don't even do it on purpose. It usually just happens out of nowhere!

It will always be a curse until you learn to set boundaries. I had the same problem until last year. I think it's so easy for us to feel other people's pain that we always want to take it in and transform it for them but you have to realize that you're not doing your friend any favors by making them co-dependent on you. I'm still kind of struggling with this but I've grown a lot withing the last year and about two months ago I felt a shift. I got to the point where it all just made sense to set my boundaries.

I'm pretty sure there is a way to shut out what you don't want. Although I'm unsure of any of the techniques just google it:)
I'm not sure if this is empathy or seer or anything but I saw a guy that looked homeless and I saw like this flash and he was in a bussiness suit clean shaven with a wife and 2 kids and they were all happy. I was then hit with a wave of sadness and then he was normal again. Anyway there are techniques for blocking out what you don't want. But every time you get a negative emotion just say "ok this isn't my own emotion" or something along the lines of that. Goodluck:D
