The Weight of Being an Empath

Updated: Mar 5, 2020

It is often a recommendation, but never a caution.

I have heard it said that "We need more empathy in the world"... But as an empath myself, I would never wish this ability on another being. We often speak of being empathic as the idea of 'walking in another person's shoes' or 'seeing another person's perspective from their experience. But what about the few who feel other people's emotions as if it is their own?
