It is a basic human instinct for most. We feel for the people going through struggles. We feel for the heartbroken, overworked, and mistreated. We are all empaths to a degree.
But there are some that walk this earth that are born with a natural sensitivity that allows them to take on the energy, feelings, and emotions of others and not even be aware of it.
Not knowing this sensitivity can leave one feeling drained, exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, and depleted. This sensitivity can feel more like a curse than a gift and that is why I created My Empowered Empath Course.
I went most of my life taking on the energy and emotions of others and labeling it my own.
I felt the intense of emotions of others peoples anger, heartbreak, and grief.
I would deal with energetic overwhelm in busy, congested places and then need days to recuperate.
If so, you might be an empath my friend.
