I Am An Empath

Being human is hard enough but I’m cursed with being an Emotionally Receptive Empath.

What does that mean?

It means that I am receptive to other people’s emotions. I absorb others’ emotions and feelings. It causes me extreme mental fatigue. I often experience emotional overload, physical exhaustion, and sometimes environmental sensitivities.

I thrive on solitude. I need my alone time to recharge and refresh, in order to face another day, another encounter with others. I feel at peace when I’m alone in nature.

I’m a good listener and have an immense desire to help people with their problems. The problem with that is that it is physically exhausting. I can’t seem to recognize when I need to step away.

Violence and cruelty cause me great pain and heartache. Some current affairs upset me so much that I get a headache. I have to walk away from the tv, internet, or other media.

I always thought this was normal; a normal state of being human. I learned about 10 years ago that this is not the case. I’m not normal. I don’t fit in with most others. My circle of friends is small. In fact, most of those in my circle are people who bring a light wherever they go; they are a source of positive charge!

Many people over the years have told me I’m too emotional or made fun of me because I’m emotional over something that they are not. It’s not my fault.

  1. In recent years, I kind of thought I was an empath because of how emotional I can get when I see others’ feelings, whether it’s something I’ve read in a book, seen on TV, or seeing them in person. But, I took this test from the link you gave and ended up with the following result:

    Your Results:
    Your Super Serious Title is: The Rainbow Goddess Empath

    Your Total Score: 59 out of 80
    Your Out of Control Healer Score: 8 out of 10
    Your Protection Tools Score: 18 out of 25
    How Much You Mirror Others Unconsciously Score: 10 out of 15
    Your Appreciation for Nature Score: 10 out of 10

    You scored pretty high on the overall results. It is highly likely that you are an empath.

    You are highly intuitive and can almost always tell when people are lying. You like water but don’t absolutely need to be near it. Your second chakra does okay. You love nature and unconsciously understand its healing effects — which is a general, but strong indicator that you are an empath. You have a deep love and appreciation for nature. You recognize the sacred expression of all beings. You are truly wise. But you have a gift for influencing the moods, energies, atmospheres, and environments around you.

    You are your own person, other people’s energy doesn’t effect you. You scored toward the middle of the “Mirroring Others Unconsciously” portion of the quiz. This means that for the most part you are your own person, but you might benefit from learning some energy protection tools.

    You scored toward the middle on the “Has Protection Tools” section of the quiz. This indicates that while sometimes other people’s energy gets into your aura and body, you mostly have things under control. Good Job. Wow, sounds like you need to slow down and give to yourself before you heal the world! You would benefit from an energy healing yourself!
