Empathic With A Depressed Friend?


I am empathic, and I take medication for depression although it doesn't really do anything for it. I personally don't believe I have depression, I think it is others' emotions overwhelming me (I find it very hard to differentiate between my emotions and someone else's). Anyway, my friend has depression and I try to help her, but (I don't want to sound awful) it brings me down, because I can feel her emotions so I then feel depressed. I want to be able to help her without feeling what she feels, does anyone have any advice? I'm just starting to develop my spiritual side (I'm 15) so I don't really know how to block the emotions of other people yet. Nearly every time I see her she is depressed or starts to talk about how depressed she is/how things aren't working out for her and I just start to feel what she is feeling and all of the negative energy goes straight to me so I feel drained. Are there psychics I can meet to help me develop my abilities so I can stop this from happening? I really don't know what to do.

Also, I have never been religious but I am suddenly getting these visions from God. I don't consider myself a devoted Christian as I believe in Evolution and science etc but I believe there is also a greater power in another dimension that created this dimension/universe. These are completely real to me, and others don't see that. I seem to get visions of heaven and hell and feel like God is showing me beautiful new things like new colours, shapes and universes to show others and inspire others of what is out there. To evolve our species. Is this to do with me being an "Indigo Child" or am I just imagining things?

Thank you for reading:)

It may help, to stop taking the medication. No, I'm not a doctor and can't say it will help, but it may. I was on lexapro and found myself more susceptible to the depression caused by empathically taking others feelings, and once I quit taking it, it's been a little bit easier to focus on my own.:) I hope that can help a bit.
Also you may be an "indigo " but I'm no expert on that subject, so it may be that you are.

i use a golden shield of light to protect myself from the negative energy of others. Every morning when you wake up close your eyes and envision a bright golden light coming down on your head then passing down through your entire body. Now hold the image in your mind and see yourself glowing and pulsing with this loving, golden light. This will help you repel any unwanted negative energy coming your way. Teach this to your friend as well. It isn't good to hang around with other depressed people when you yourself are depressed. This achieves nothing except perhaps you feel better for helping your friend. But before you can truly help someone else you must be able to help yourself. I think if you read up on auras and how they work this will also help you feel better. You can change your aura by chosing your mood.
as for your vision of hell- this is not what the divine spirit has shown me- there is no hell, this is a christian invention to scare people into goodness. I don't need the threat of hell to keep me from killing or stealing or lying. Do you? So who is hell for? And why would our creator NOT love us all? Why would we go to burn in torment someplace for eternity? Answer is-- we don't.

Love and light... Always

Hi- I'm slightly empathic as well. Try blocking them out by focusing on your own emotions, mentally and emotionally putting up a wall between your feelings and everyone elses. Naturally if your close to someone it will be harder but try it it could work:) it works for me, but I'm not as strong as you are so I'm not sure:D
