As might be surmised from the name, an empath is someone who has a lot of empathy. An empath is someone who is highly conscious of other people’s emotions and often experiences the emotions of others along with them. Empaths have a different view of the world than others; they are aware of what is going on with other people, what they need emotionally, and what causes them pain. However, if you are not an empath, this does not mean that you don’t have empathy! Empaths are just prone to being hyper-aware of other’s needs for compassion.
