“Yeah, definitely a hard thing to get yourself to understand. I used to think if I cared more or if I did this more for someone, they’d love me or care for me. It doesn’t work like that, though.”

“They want you to say what they want to hear. Research has been conducted on this.

“You are not an empath, just incapable of dealing with anybody else’s emotions.”

“My roommate’s like that. She’ll burst out in anger against me, then blame the “negative vibes” I give off for making her stressed. She says it is because she is an empath, but that’s not really what being an empath is. My theory is that other people’s negative emotions make her very uncomfortable, and she can’t cope, so she gets angry.”
