Are You an Empath?
An empath is someone who’s in tune with other people’s feelings. Empaths are usually unaware that they are “reading” other people’s energy and often mistake another person’s emotions for their own. Empaths are a bit like sponges; they soak up and take on other people’s “stuff.” Empaths are very creative, have great imaginations and often act dreamy. They are incredibly sensitive and will get upset over someone else’s sad news as though it’s their own.
Some empaths can take on the physical pain of those around them as well or they might express their excess psychic energy in physical ways.
Empaths are often quiet, enjoy their alone time and are very in tune with nature. They tend to be sensitive to violent TV, news and movies. They cannot understand cruelty. Empaths make great listeners and often find that people tell them their whole life story. They need to beware of energy vampires – people who take advantage of others. Empaths also need to make sure to take care of themselves.
