The Feeling Gene

Being an empath is a complicated fate. On the one hand it allows me to perceive situations and people quickly but it also comes at a cost. I am constantly receiving sensory information and this can become quite draining at times. I find that grasping moments of solitude in nature and escaping for a jog with a good playlist are perfect remedies and an essential part of my daily prescription. Fellow empaths, how do you take care of your own needs?


I feel you in the breaths you take

I feel you in the pauses

Where in your sentences you break

Beneath the facts and causes

I sense the mood surrounding you

That which defies your manner

Beneath the things you say and do

Beneath the glitz and glamour

I hear you in your cadences

I grasp your intonation

I know what your true fragrance is

It needs no explanation

I see the soul that lives in you

The joy, the fear, the wrath

The intuition comes on cue

When you’re a true empath
