I take what isn't mine,
leaving what is good behind.
Taking the pain and leaving joy.

They smile, not knowing what I've done.
I cry over this, because I know what I've done.
I wear the mask.
As the smile openly.

No one knows what I do,
that I can sense and take emotion.
I can take pain and leave joy.
Though, I wish they did.

An Empath can feel what isn't their own feeling,
they can also take it from others.
Taking their pain so they wont.
That's what I do.

It's so much more than empathy,
it's feeling it in my very core that's not even mine.
Pain, sorrow, feeling hollow.
That isn't mine in the beginning.

I help by taking.
I save by containing.
But will anyone help,
or save me too?

Someone to understand,
an electic touch.
A gentle voice.
So much more than a friend is what I need.

Where to start?
I don't know.
I wish they'd know.
Because I guess they're not here.
I don't know.....
I guess it holds my truth
but I'm not sure what all it means myself

I've always had the desire to help people and over the years i'd would feel strange emotions that would just pop up from nowhere and i didn't really think about it until yesterday i would sometimes hear of empaths and when i looked it up and think back to my own experiences and it started to make since now i've been taking better control of the emotions i have but the best thing is I'm glad I'm not alone

Empaths often find themselves feeling odd emotions and often feeling loneliness out of all of them because the Empathic trait is a rarity to repeat in families. Though in normal cases they are usually a mixture of traits of both parents. Like my dad likes to help people and does what he can, while my mom is able to look at a person and know what they're like. While those are basic traits the list can go much deeper than that. If you ever have any questions I'll be more than happy to answer them.

It's usually a good idea to find someone who has a vast understanding of this. It's also good to know what kind of empath you are. I am a Universal Empath. That means I can sense the emotions of anyone or anything and actually alter it. I can also sense physical and mental statuses and fluctuations. I tend to take away negative feelings. Whether I want to or not. Either way. I like helping people feel better. Though, the negative feelings don't just leave into thin air. I feel them as my own and that has some rather significant physical, as well as psychological, problems. As a result, I tend to hide my own emotions for fear that they may be too dangerous or they might hurt someone else. I tend to carry that weight around but I find outlets for the negative energy to turn it to something positive.
Aaaand I'm rambling aren't I?

I took the quiz and turns out I'm also a universal empath

Awesome. Though, not all of us are the same. I'm a special case. Not many people can alter. I'm also an aura reader so that adds on to it.

Well you just pretty much summed up how I feel everyday. Don't know, it really matches me. My sign Pisces always holds characteristics as shown by you, and I know it's not true to everyone, but it is to me.

After this, I went and spent like 2 hours searching for what is an empath, if I was one, and what type. Turns out9at least according to about a milllion test and descriptions), I am one. A out of control healer, fallen angel type

where did you get the fallen angel type?
I took the quiz that told me I was a 'Universal Empath'
