About Being an Empath

NatureI am a mother, English teacher, and an Empath. I live in the Philadelphia area. Reading other people’s energies continues to be a huge part of my life. The idea that we are all connected and sharing in this human experience is the basis for this blog. It has also become my therapy as I work through the complications of life as an Empath. I hope that these words reach those who have this ability as well as those who need to know that there are people who can truly feel for them. I believe that I am here as a light in this world.

  1. Thanks so much for following me on Cold. I’m interested in reading more as the only definition of empath I’ve known is from Star Trek: The Next Generation (I’m not being funny). Really interesting and original blog.

    • No offense taken 🙂 Yeah, it was a strange thing to even realize. It took a bit of research to figure out what it was. I never watched Star Trek: The Next Generation, but a friend told me about it after we talked about my abilities. It tends to be an ability that is not really discussed much. People are much more interested when you can talk to dead people. Much more comforting than “hey, I know how you feel-literally.” No problem for the follow. I find your topic really interesting too.

  2. Hi. I’m just a stranger looking for help. It’s alright if you feel it’s not something you want to do, but I’ve been searching around and I was wondering if you could provide an input. If this is inappropriate, feel free to ignore. I’m almost at wits ends.

    I may be dating an empath. It’s not like he tells me he’s an empath but how he describes himself matches the various descriptions I’ve been reading. When we are together, he’s very stoic and almost unresponsive. Because of not knowing what has been going on, I started to feel bad, as if I was doing something wrong, but he tells me that’s it not what I am doing. He doesn’t hold anything against me because he understands, yet, it’s because he’s so distant, I just feel even worse at times.

    Is this a defense mechanism that empaths project? Being very quiet and distant? He also tells me that’s he’s distrustful. Because he can feel exactly how people are and this gives him a reason to distrust people. I don’t understand it. I feel like I’m trying very hard to keep in tune with him and talk to him and try to understand him…but he’s so unresponsive. He even told me that I might not ever gain this trust and that really broke me down. He wants me around but I feel like if he’s not going to help me, I don’t think there’s anymore I can do. He tells me to just try and change my perspective or do nothing. I don’t even know where to start and I am one who can’t just sit by and watch the relationship shrivel up.

    • I actually really appreciate that you felt you could reach out to me. If you go to my twitter accounT and send me a message, I’ll give you my email and we can communicate that Way. Maybe I can help you both. It is hard to date an empath. We struggle.

  3. Hi there, I’m also an empath in Philadelphia. I just discovered how much this is affecting me and I REALLY want to take care of myself. I’ve seen how this is affecting my life and I want to do something good with it. Do you know of any energy schools in Philly? Do you attend any of the meetups? This isn’t the kind of thing we should face alone, my friend.

  4. I just found out I am an empath well at least i think I am . When I talk to certain people I get dizzy . One min I’m laughing as happy and all of a sudden I feel sick it’s weird .. Pls help
