  • I’ve known for a very long time that Im really sensitive to everything and everyone around me. Saying no at time’s when I knew that it was what’s was best has always been so hard because I feel so deeply & I just wanna fix everything. I get so anxious in large crowd’s & I feel like I can shut the world out & relax when I’m at home.

  • I’d been trying to explain to others what it is like being an empath.. this really sums up a lot of it, I don’t know about everyone, but my feelings tend to hurt more.. and I always seem to put myself last because all I seem to want to do is make sure everyone else is ok.. even though I’m falling apart some days from being an empath..-and my normal everyday things- :) thank you for this page

  • Am one. A very helpful piece, thanks. And a big problem for empaths is their attention is on others and shifting it to self feels foreign and unimportant.

    We’re so glad you found this helpful. You’re right — empaths are always
    thinking about others!

  • As an empath, THANK YOU for this article! (mainly for getting it out there for people who aren’t in order to understand us better.)
