Thanks! I've read lots on it, it's just exhausting, you know? I do daily prayers and meditations to protect myself, I just have to be aware of my emotions all the time. I read the channeling Erik blog and really like what it said about being an empath. Basically, when you encounter a weird "out of nowhere" emotion, look at it like a shirt. Is this my shirt? Is this someone else's shirt? If it's not your shirt, take that shit off! I think a lot of people look at it like it's a superpower, but it's kind of a pain in the butt.
