Being empathic is very common, but when you add fluoride, GMOs, excitotoxins, Aspartame, cell phones & wifi frequencies, chemtrails, more fluoride, more Aspartame, MSG, engineered vaccines & viruses, television, big pharma medications, more Monsanto love, even more fluoride, dead foods with no nutrients, growth hormones in meat, psychological programing via media, aluminum toxicity, mercury tooth fillings....
I can go on, you get the point. What we are and could be naturally is being altered and deformed from almost all directions, so the average person has no idea where to begin to stop the negative outside influences. They end up giving up trying with the thought, "Everything causes cancer, I'm not going to live in fear of everything..." so they end up doing nothing to change their diet or habits.

Yes. Honestly, it can be exhausting. It's why I prefer to be alone or with my partner. You can't really turn it off so it drains you. It also makes you a bit frustrated when people seem not to be as tuned in to your emotions as you are to theirs. Or when people seem callous in general to the emotional undercurrent of a situation.edit on 13-3-2012 by KillerQueen because: (no reason given)

Very cool, I'm an empath too. Didn't know there were so many on ATS.
Does the saying "There's no place like home" especially resonate with any other empaths?
Some days I'll go out into the world, expend and accept all this energy and just be exhausted when I get home. Home is like my sanctuary, that solitary place (for the most part) where I can be shielded from the world and just "recharge" myself.
I'm okay with social crowds, I love meeting people, but there's nothing like being alone.

Most people isolate themselves and are unware not only of human emotions but nature as a whole. Whatever happened to those rites of passage where a young person has to go survive a couple weeks in the wilderness to understand his place in nature, such as those performed by Native Americans? I think everyone should have to experience something like this. Drop people off in the middle of nowhere for a few weeks and say to them "if you make it back, welcome to the human race" otherwise "we love you but sorry". This might sound cruel but anyone who actually has to go survive will quickly see patterns in humans, nature, etc, and connect with them much more easily.
