If your coworkers leech your energy; you have mysterious illnesses, aches, and pains; are depressed or angry for no good reason; feel drained around certain people; or are super sensitive to the negativity around you, you may be an empath picking up on the thoughts, emotions, attitudes, and even the illnesses of others.
As you know, “empathy” is the term used to describe putting ourselves into the situation of another person in order to feel for them or to empathize with what they are going through. Some people are so empathetic that they actually feel with or on behalf of another person. We call these folks empaths or highly sensitive people. Empaths are often found doing volunteer work and may serve others through emotionally demanding careers as childcare givers, medical professionals, hospice workers, midwives, and such.
Thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are a subtle form of energy. Empaths are so energy sensitive that they easily become over stimulated by the energy of other people. Many are unable to be in public without feeling drained because they take on the burdens of complete strangers.
When a tragic world event occurs, empaths may feel the sorrow, loss, and despair of those in another state or country as if their own family had been affected. Some empaths sense the physical pain, and even the illnesses, of others. Feeling too deeply can cause depression, fatigue, and unexplainable mood swings. Therefore, this intuitive ability is life disrupting for some empaths.
