empathy sucks?
Isn't empathy natural human skill that helps you relate to others? you actually kind of need empathy, it is a good thing in the human personality. I would think it's quite useful, since the lack of creates social problems.

I don't believe in any kind of psychics or mediums .. preferably Slyvia Brown or John Edward. I think it's just abused by psychics; and I personally think that if you get phyiscally or mentally ill from someone, it's basically their negative 'energy' for lack of a better word. Oh, bad attutudes rub off easier then others. It's happened to me many times, but that's life.

I forgot
While searching through LJ this morning I remembered I had been in this community for awhile.. left.. and now I think I'd like to relate a brief experience that might make some sense.

My husband is going through a lot of life changes - which is absolutely nothing new. Our daughter is going through many changes as well - again that is nothing new.

But last night my sister was able to drop in at the end of her vacation. She and her husband joined us for dinner. The house smelled wonderful from the roast simmering in the oven and I had a nice dinner planned. My husband awakened from a late afternoon nap and was so crabby.. it only took one un-kind snappish word from him to me.. and I had trouble breathing the rest of the evening. I could not include myself in the conversation.. no words would come out of my mouth. The entire evening, from my perspective, was ruined. There are moments in our lives we cannot get back. My sister is in poor health and I treasure any time we can be together and enjoy the company.

When he is like this - and it doesn't take much - I feel that all the air has left the room. The negative energy is overwhelming.

Is this a common thing among adults in general.. or am I just too receptive?

Hi! I haven't done a psychic intro for the longest time! ANYWHO...

My name is Michelle, I'm 25 yrs old, live in Ontario, Canada. I moved to Canada from Saint Joseph, Missouri to be with someone I've been looking for a long time. (lots on that as the months progress) Right now, I work in the horse industry. It's hunter/jumper horses. My baby is Andiamo, which, everyone will find out if they read my journal is my baby. He's not mine, but he wuvs me bunches! Teehee!

I have been aware of my gift for 5 years. It was awakened, I believe, by a raging fever in 2000. We were battling the legal system (long story that can be explained if anyone wants to hear it) & I didn't take care of myself. (There was too much else to do then me to see a doctor) I have been told that I was almost spiritually dead & could have completely died if it wasn't for the fact that I have something important to do before I die. Of which, I am STILL looking for.

I am a witch & *VERY* empathic. I have learned over the years how to shield, how to create what I want...although it may take months when I don't create it & let it go. (I teach this method also if anyone is interested. It's free!) I am also clairvoyant, but it has to be in the immediate future. My first experiences w/these gifts were NOT pleasant & caused me - at first - to contemplate suicide. (Some history w/suicide, but not anymore. (You'd be a lil suicidal if you saw your best friend die too!)

I have a guardian due to my unbalanced nature. His name is Miguel. Cute guy. Shoulder length auburn hair, 6ft 1in, slender, muscled & knows how to keep me in line. LOL!

I am in the middle of a bazillion things that often times have me muddled, so prepare for rants.

I joined this community in hopes that I would find others like me & have people to talk to.

Obviously I'm new.. or you would at least recognize me lol.

I am also an empath (once again obviously -_-), I've known about this ability to it's extent for a good 4 years now and have practiced many different techniques with it, learning to manipulate it to my own needs.

See you name this place "empathy sucks", when really.. it's you that makes it that bad. It's simple to make the harder feelings go away, its easy to play with it. You just have to have the guts and a good amount of energy to get off the computer and try it.. or at least look it up.

I've only practiced different techniques with my ability for about a year now, on and off. And it's not half as bad as it used to be. At one point, I went for a month straight with head aches from all the emotions and physical pain. I get head aches now, but they're my own most of the time.

Well.. I'm not quite sure what else to say here.. seeing as I'm not complaining about it.. lol.

It seems like when I'm in a situation where people are ill/in pain, or flipping out & I'm somewhat prepared for it (or I know it'll last a while), I can remind myself that "What's theirs is theirs, what's mine is mine." It tends to help me create a mental/emotional shield, so that I don't get caught up in their drama. It might take a few minutes, but works fairly well.

I have a problem with these new OnStar commercials, though, where you hear someone flipping out cos of an accident, or sommat. Even though I try to tune out commercials, I still find myself feeling a little off during them & for a minute or 2 afterward. They aren't really long enough to shield myself from & I can't always change the station. There's usually a little "The following is an actual conversation between an OnStar customer & representative," blurb, which gives me time to change stations when I'm in the car, but I can't really do that at work.

I also can't stand on-screen pain. Fake it may be, it still makes me uncomfortable. And jokes that involve pain...my dad told me a stupid joke about how a pirate lost his eye (I'll spare you the joke) & it bothered me more than it should have.

Hi guys *waves* I found a community where I can vent of this subject and not get a YeAH whatever response! I actaully use and abuse my empathy to get what I want ..ALOT I can pick up on if and when I say things wrong to people, helps get dates like nothing ... But this is a trashing community so I'll counter it lol
I hate it because I cant get into large groups of people with out completely freaking the crap out!! headaches stomach aches and the general over powredness of peoples emotions...plus then theres the whole flash of the future I get sometimes from it...which I actaull feel what happens during it IT STUPID

my opinion....
i think it sucks because when people ask why im mad...theres no reason...when im upset...theres no reason.....and when i really DO have a reason to upset its 10 times worse because then im still upset from everyone else....it sucks because everyone thinks your crazy when you try to explain empathy to them....in my opinion its not anything psychic or supernatrual....it been proven that we as empaths have more of a capacity to feel...and therefore we are cursed day by day with everyone elses pain......it sucks because when you try to tell someone why you have to run into seclusion the only excuse you have is because you wanna be alone...and thats nebver a good enough reason...so hows this....i dont want anyone elses problems....

for those who havent guessed yet i dont hjave much experiance with my "gift" ive come to terms with it over the past 3and a half years...but no where near to controlling it....i heard this featcan be accomplished....but i have yet to do so...

anyway thats my opinion...i look forward to reading more...

Blargh. Had a really good day today. Why am I posting this? Because empathy sucks, and I'm cranky anyway.I just want to bang my head against the wall to make the pain in there go away.

Empathy sucks because you can't tell people who don't believe in it that it's the reason why you're cranky 'for no reason'.

Figured I'd get the discussion here started by complaining.

I am an extrovert stuck in an introvert's body. I like people. I like to spend time with people. However, cause of the empathy I end up hiding from people because I can barely handle my own emotions, much less theirs.

Empathy makes it so hard to get out and do things. Or to want to get out and do things.

Right now I have a splitting empathic headache from a concert. Ow. Ow.
