Empath 🤔

Hi Everyone... happy Sunday! Does anyone have knowledge of being an empath? My Step Mom is a reiki master and I was talking to her about my feelings, how i feel around people, and I was talking to her about always being anxious which she picked up on before I even told her. She said I am an Empath and She knew it for a while but didn't want me to think she was a weirdo.

I have been told I'm an empath. And you have to be very careful if you are cos you can take on people's emotions which is fine with most people but if you come across a negative person it's very harmful.

Hi, Very interesting. I don't know if this is an example of an empath but say for example a person can pass me by and I'll feel like even though they look happy, I can sense sadness and want to hug them. Also, I have been around a certain person more than usual since January and this person does have a very negative outlook on just about everything. Is it okay if I message you? I brought this up with my therapist also and she explained that she is an Empath also but she did not go in to too much detail because my session is 30 mins.
