What is an Empath?
Put simply, an Empath is a person who absorbs other people’s emotions and experiences these emotions as if they were their own.
Empathic people are extremely sensitive to the emotional energy of those around them and as a result, tend to commonly experience energetic overload in the form of fatigue, anxiety, and depression.
However, despite the tendency to “soak up” the energy of other beings, Empaths are highly compassionate, loving, intuitive, and insightful people.

So very sensitive I swear I can feel a speck of dust land on my skin. I developed psoriatic arthritis. I’ve been in numerous drug treatment programs. I can’t believe I’m now 46 finding out that there are others, and a name for this. It’s driven me into such major depression and suicidal. I suffer major insomnia. Worrying about everything. I hope there is help for this horrible mental health disorder. I’ve been living for my kid but each day it’s getting more difficult to find the will for another day. Light, sounds , smells can be uncomfortable especially light. I used to be told by ex that I live in a cave. All the counselors I had. Not one of them… Read more »
I have had this ability all my life but for a long time I thought everyone felt this stuff, then I thought something was wrong with me because I have had depression in the past but a few years ago I finally went through my spiritual Awakening and I finally know what I am and what these abilities are and how they work its been better except it is alot.
