Empathic people are very strong and interesting, to say the least. They are a bit more sensitive than others but this is not in a bad way.
If you have ever come in contact with an empathic person you know all too well how interesting and unique they truly are. They are in sync with something the rest of us aren’t and they have tons of traits that make up who they are. While some of these traits make things a little harder on the empathic person, they all make them stronger in the end.
31 Things That Make Empathic People Who They Truly Are:
