Are You A Empath?

Are You A Empath?

I asked a similar question recently. Thanks to all who responded. But upon further research, there is a difference in empathy and being a Empath. I would love to know how many migraine warriors feel that they are Empaths.

@A MyMigraineTeam Member, I really understand that. I have had to learn to move through a grocery store, crowd or even family gatherings, with mental blinders on. It is so against who I am, having always been so intune to others. I do it out of self preservation, lowering my mental and emotional confusion. One on one is something i can manage, with people who are honest and caring.

I know that I am, I absorb emotions like a sponge. It's great when around happy people, not so great when surrounded by stress or negativity.

I actually didn't know the meaning of it until I looked it up. I took an online quiz as well (not sure about the accuracy) and I'm definitely an empath.

An intuitive empath is highly sensitive to the emotions of others and is typically a very good listener. An intuitive empath will often pick up on another person’s hidden and suppressed emotions.

I am an Empath. I feel sad if I am around someone sad, I will cry if I see someone crying. I usually feel others emotions as if they are my own feelings. It used to take a lot out of me, but now I have learned to not so much as turn it off. I guess manage my emotions and I know what I am feeling vs someone else's emotions.
