5 Signs You're An Empath

5 Signs You're An Empath

Are you an empath or a highly sensitive person? Are you wondering if someone might be an empath? Perhaps, your sibling, a partner, or a close friend? Someone who is an empath has the ability to understand and share the emotions of another person. It can be understood as “feeling with” someone. It involves stepping into their shoes to imagine what they are going through and being caring and compassionate in order to make them feel better. This caring, this desire to help, is what separates empathy from sympathy. Although they both deal with relating to another person, empathy is felt more deeply and reaches a broader range of emotions. Empaths are compelled to help because they grasp the experiences of others so vividly. Sympathy usually only extends to sorrow or pity. Do you feel being an empath is a gift or a curse?
