My Life as an Empath

Posted on March 23, 2011

Well to start this off I’m gonna say this I am an natural born empath, and I am a former atheist. This isn’t so much a story about one experience it’s more about life being an empath and some experiences I have had.

First off the most recent experience was just last night. My school was having a talent show so me and a couple friends went. After the first half during intermission I looked over to see a boy and the minute I saw him a voice in my head said stay away. He was smiling with his friends and acting like a normal teenager, but for some reason I stayed my distance. Later that night him and a couple of his friends beat up a kid in my school just because. I have had many things like this happen to me.

Another one was with my Great-Grandma (r.i.p). She was a very religious women and very sweet, but the last time I visited her I knew that would be the last time I’d see her. I was right, a week after the visit she fell very ill ,and it was very random. She was put into the hospital and the doctors said she would be returning home. I knew better. I told my mom she wasn’t going to make it, she wasn’t coming out alive. I was right, later that day she had passed away.

Now being an empath is hard sometimes. I hate crowds with a passion, and I don’t have many friends. I tend to keep to myself and only my close friends and boyfriend knows about this. I wrote this here to tell my story. I have many many many things I could tell you about, but I think two will do.

    First, I am Glad you are no longer an athiest. Second I wish I was smart enough at your age to listen to the voice in my head. It would have saved me a lot of grief. I would love to here some more of your experiences…Wright on.

    I know how hard it can be. I too am empathic and hate crowds. I have two close friends and that’s sometimes hard enough to maintain, because of all the emotions I pick up. My husband is very supportive and this has helped me a lot. Ever since I was a kid I have always known what people need and have been compelled to help them. I can’t tell you how many times I have had people ask me how I knew what they needed.

    I didn’t realize I was empathic until about a year ago. I just thought I was weird. :)

  3. keke says:

    im also an empath and i dont have any friends at all but i think its wierd that i can see the future of people when i touch them and feel what they feel…. any idea what to call that?

  4. lakepebble says:

    Yes it is really hard, but i’ve learned not to second guess my feelings. When I was athiest I would do this all the time ,and it got me into trouble. I will not say I have a religion ,because I never will ,but I do belive in god. Anywho yeah I’m natural born ,and I think It’d be weird if I wasn’t an empath for a day. I don’t think I can function. It may be hard, but it’s handy and helps people. Like you I do that a lot I can never turn people down when they ask for help.

    I guess this is not about a real ghost story.

    • Caretaker says:

      Rosie this website is so much more than just ghost stories, we have vampires, werewolves, psychics, dreams and nightmares, even UFOs and aliens and lots more. Anything related to the paranormal and the supernatural…..

    i’m very much the same ^^

  9. Diana says:

    I’ve dealt with this my whole life. I find that to gain any peace, I have to isolate myself and there are times when that doesn’t even help. I remember driving by a prison once, and I had to pull over, the misery was so thick, I felt like I couldn’t go on….I wanted to die. It’s situations like that, that make it so hard to be around others when all I want is to go through one day and know if I’m feeling something, or if it’s someone else. I can’t remember what that feels like. I wish I could.
