You know that neighbour that always plays their music way too loud? Imagine trying to tell them to turn it down and they reply with "what music?"

My social anxiety is weird
im friendly bubbly never shy to say hello, good morning
But i feel really uncomfortable around groups of people/ random parties (unless its a family get to gether)
i just cant do nightclubs/ pubs that sort of thing
i feel super uncomfortable on crowded buses too
i just dont like being around that sort of thing
i never feel uncomfortable around older people
but younger people i just get horrible vibes around and feel uncomfortable/judged/ out of place (and im young myself)

I am emotionally Empathic.
the easy way to see this is
do you cry for a very sad film?
But I realized some thing else important.
you know shell shock.
well you can get it in Normal life!
think about it.
all most every day you have some thing
that slowly brakes you down.
eventually you brake, crack!
some times it is hardly noticeable
until they commit suicide or kill some one.
physiatrist Need to realize this so they can help people.
I have never see this said any ware before.
and I am not having a go at ware vets.
just think about what war vets go thru?
a kid at school gets bulled ever day.
he then commits suicide.
can you try to see this, please!
I just wish physiatrist could see it.
and help ALL the people in need.
I even have a idea to help them.
go on some kind of retreat.
with no out side world at all.
total quiet and peace for 4 weeks or more.
two time a year.
and do a total life change.
new job new friends. not easy I know.
but is killing your self worth it?

Thanks FlyersFan for this wonderful article!! It gives us empaths a chance to step out of our lurking to commune and find common ground!!
I think some great points have been made that helped shed some light for me!! Hopefully for others as well. I think the question that really needs some attention has been asked by a couple of peeps already. How does an empath cope when they have to live in the world? Coping skills help us to live balanced, healthy, fulfilled lives!! I would love to hear in more detail how others cope.
