7 Signs You're A True Empath
1. TV dramas really get to you.
Everybody Loves Raymond is pretty much the worst show if you're an empath. I could probably talk about that for an hour. When people are mad on TV, you feel it. When they're sad, you feel it. Watching dramatic shows can really get to you.
2. Crowds are a little overwhelming.
It can be fine for a while, but experiencing that many people all at once can be overwhelming. Sometimes you can really feel all the emotions around you.
3. You feel the pain of others.
This is a pretty common thing among people. Our brains are actually soft wired to experience the experiences of others, and that includes their pain.
4. You can immediately tell the character of someone.
This one is pretty rare. Sometimes we can really get a vibe for someone but empaths take it to a whole new level. It's like they can see right through a person's BS right to their core.
5. You want to take care of others.
For you, it's great that you have what you need but so many people going without bothers you. You feel their pain. It can be troubling knowing how much suffering there is in the world.
6. People are drawn to you.
Are you the friend that everyone opens up to? You might be a good listener, but you're probably an empath too. You give the best advice because you're able to feel their problems as if they were your own. You don't tell them what you want to them to do, you tell them what you would do in that situation.
7. All you want is to make the world a better place.
And the world needs a lot more people like you.
