Hello, I am Stephanie. I am in introvert and empath.
I have always been an introvert, even when I tried to be outgoing. I didn't realized for a long time why I wan't outgoing, I just wasn't. Then one day, a few years ago or so, I heard the term "Introvert" and "Extrovert" and it made sense to me.
I recently realized what was going on with me, and why I always felt like hiding away, staying away from people, loud music and crowds. I would be okay, then I would walk into a crowded store and I felt such a heaviness. I thought it was my own feelings of "Dang, there's too many people in here" or "I feel like everyone is looking at me"....when really they weren't.
I'm an empath. I would have never known what exactly what to call or "label" myself if it weren't for a few facebook pages and close friends I have made in the past few years.
I have always been highly sensitive, but I am now more aware of my surroundings. I am still learning to stay conscious and be aware if what I am feeling is from others or directly from my own self.
I am still learning to practice patience and love, and to NOT put a wall between me and others, because that is the last thing I want to do.....We are already separated enough by religion, stereo-types, and fear.
My ultimate goal is to learn to live my life with love, compassion, and understanding, and to break the separation...
Deep down, we are all the same. *Love*
