Introverted Empaths

Postby BorgQueen » Tue Feb 14, 2017 8:21 am

Recently, I've come to realise that I'm an empath. And it's kinda weird thinking that most of the things I'm feeling are actually other people's feeling coming onto me. Now, for your average extrovert, this would be a major blessing. Think; you'll be able to comfort someone and know exactly how they're feeling. But, for your average introvert, it's a burden. I actually think that this empathy thing might be the cause to quite a few of my mental illnesses.

Is anyone else here an empath? Do you know of ways to stop the empathy?

I really detest these new terms. Heck, I'm cool with "Before Christ" and "After Death".

Anyway, without thinking of terms, I used to think that I could read peoples' minds. It turns out that I'm just an automatic pro at reading facial expressions and body language. Add that to introversion and *ouch!* the possibilities. Well, that explains the long, long bout with headaches.

I have recently been called an empath. I did some research and a lot of what I read applies to me. Unfortunately, I don't think you can shut it off.

I'm sorry you didn't get a more empathic response!

Why is knowing how other people feel a burden?
