I wasn’t aware of the concept EMPATH until this century
—with the exception of Deanna Troi in Star Trek next gen —
but it fits me:
it is one of the reasons I don’t socialize:
the other is of course my anxiety disorder:
Sometimes some people’s energies make me feel physically ill:
it is when they are being malicious and not necessarily to me:
I have to get up and leave.
Being an empath may have contributed to my not wanting to eat meat even as a child.
I would have nightmares of being an animal in a slaughter house and trying to tell the other animals to try and get away.
We read a book when I was in in primary school (1950s) about an heifer that escaped and made it to the outback of Australia (Obviously a satire on the meat industry)
I have googled but all I have found is books with religious connotations or breeding cattle.
I thought it was called “The Little Red Heifer” — so long ago I cannot remember the author.
if any one knows of this let me know.
or –my lastest “fad”
