Every week or so, on average, I’ll get an e-mail from someone who has read my definition of what an Empath is.
The thing they say the most is that they’ve been an empath all their life, but never knew there was a name for it.
A lot believed they were crazy, but once they did some research,. they found it explained what had been happening to them all their life.
Some get very excited and want to know as much as they can, and others are just happy they have found an answer to their questions.
In general, though, there is a feeling of relief that they are not the only ones, and more importantly, there are others out there who understand what they are going through.
I make it a point to answer every e-mail I receive, though it is the rare person who enters into any type of correspondence with me.
Some feel weird that they are e-mailing a total stranger, while others feel guilty about taking up my time.
It’s probably just as well that only around 1% keep in contact, as I don’t think they’d be enough hours in the day to keep up otherwise.
Got your own experiences or comments? I’d love to see them.
