1.Reading people’s feelings without trying. Empaths know what a person is feeling regardless of how a person “looks” on the outside?
2.Finding people gravitating to you for help. Empaths are often drawn, almost compelled to help them?People you have never met before may open up their deepest secrets to you, for example, while grocery shopping.
3.Craving alone time. Empaths need time alone with almost no external input.This is not just a preference, but a need to avoid getting overwhelmed by emotional information from others.
4.Knowing information when it is asked for. Empaths have this trait even as children.Others perceived this to be precocious as you all too often answered adults in conversation with the correct answer. Sometimes, in school, you did not need to study but just knew the answers.
5.Feeling strong emotional impacts everywhere. Empaths feel emotions while walking down the street when passing complete strangers.
6.Feeling emotional impacts from animals as well. Empaths take in signals from people and animals, often equally.
7.Waking up startled by sudden and intense feelings, and know they are not yours?
8.Feeling emotional “ripples” in the world?If there is a catastrophe that elicits a strong emotional response from masses of people, can you feel them? See them?
9.Knowing who is calling without being near a phone or cell phone. Empaths can feel someone is reaching out.
Empaths have a tendency to openly feel what is outside of them more so than what is inside of them. This can cause empaths to ignore their own needs. In general an empath is non-violent, non-aggressive and leans more towards being the peacemaker. Any area filled with disharmony creates an uncomfortable feeling in an empath. If they find themselves in the middle of a confrontation, they will endeavor to settle the situation as quickly as possible, if not avoid it all together. If any harsh words are expressed in defending themselves, they will likely resent their lack of self-control, and have a preference to peacefully resolve the problem quickly.
Empaths are sensitive to TV, videos, movies, news and broadcasts. Violence or emotional dramas depicting shocking scenes of physical or emotional pain inflicted on adults, children or animals can bring an empath easily to tears. At times, they may feel physically ill or choke back the tears. Some empaths will struggle to comprehend any such cruelty, and will have grave difficulty in expressing themselves in the face of another’s ignorance, closed-mindedness and obvious lack of compassion. They simply cannot justify the suffering they feel and see.
I identify with this on a deep, deep level,

2. Restless Sleep
When individuals with ADHD finally fall asleep, their sleep is restless. They toss and turn. They awaken at any noise in the house. They are so fitful that bed partners often choose to sleep in another bed. They often awake to find the bed torn apart and covers kicked onto the floor. Sleep is not refreshing and they awaken as tired as when they went to bed.

I have tried all the tips, the meds and some not mentioned. Nothing works for me. Makes me so tired and I have pretty much given up on ever getting a good nights sleep.
These short, restless nights have taken their toll on me physically (and probably mentally). I nap now during the day, usually around 1 in the afternoon, because by then I’ve been up for 9 hours and my body is sore.
Lack of sleep sucks the life right out of you.
Good luck to all of you trying to rest and restore your body.
I am envious of all people who can sleep peacefully, deeply and for a solid 6-8 hours consecutively!
Today is Good Friday, which for Christians is significant because it is when Jesus Christ, the son of God, died. Actually, he was murdered by being nailed to a cross.
Easter is on Sunday, which is what Christians believe to be when JC came back to life.
Seriously, there are millions of people that believe this to be the absolute truth. Otherwise intelligent people pray and believe in the characters of this fairytale, living their lives according to the story written in another time.
Do they believe as fervently in vampires? After all, isn’t the similarity between a vampire story and JC obvious?
Will there be a whole generation of descendants in the distant future worshipping Harry Potter?
It is possible but how probable would it be?
Since the religious sects have dwindling numbers of Believers and Followers, does this mean there will be an end to Christianity as we know it?
I think it hardly matters at all what people believe, as long as their beliefs make them kinder and gentler in the future.
Don’t you think that is the whole point of any religion?
Emotions are a challenge to humans. Some swallow them down, some pretend they’re non-existent, some over share, and so on.
It really doesn’t matter how you choose to deal with your feelings, they will continue to exist.
All you are really doing by keeping them to yourself is sparing those around you the drama happening inside you. Lucky them.
When you over share your emotions people will eventually just ignore you, or avoid you.
Regardless, the whole point of your struggle to get a handle on your emotions is to spare yourself some pain.
No matter how you externalize those emotions you are STILL feeling them!
