Saw this photo on 9gag and I feel that this bit is a little close to home for me. I really started late with life compared to friends and colleagues my age. Now, the younger generation is catching up to me. I still don’t know or feel what I should do with my life. I’m turning 30 this year. But that said, I am still hopeful that everything will just be fine.
Being an Empath…
What if I stop caring?
What if I stop listening?
What if I stop responding?
I think my life would be a little less hassled and a lot calmer because I will not be burdened by the emotional stress people always put on to me when they ask me for advice or just listen to them.
It is difficult being an Empath people, be considerate. We take on your emotional baggage like it is our own. We REALLY feel what you feel because it is in our (Empath’s) nature to absorb everything that is being shared to us.
So all I wish is to be a little considerate. When you asks us to listen, we listen. Don’t just ask for our attention and just say NEVER MIND afterwards. I am prepared to listen yet you think it is easy for me to just shut that off in a instant. NO! You are dead wrong.
So, I will never stop caring; I will never stop listening; and I will never stop responding. You know why? Because I was born this way. I was born to care, listen, and respond to the emotional baggage and burdens friends and family gives us.,

Last February 11, 2014, I had my first tattoo done by no other than the AWESOME Yary Young.
I have always wanted to get a tattoo but was afraid of what to get since it will be permanently etched into my skin until now. You see, I started watching Doctor Who just last year. Yes the whole New Who series from the 1st series to Matt Smith’s last episode. We all know how Doctor Who is a show field with FEELS and EMOTIONS as well as awesome quotes. So, I said to myself I want something that will be a Doctor Who related tattoo as well as a quote from Doctor Who. That’s when I decided to get a Gallifreyan tattoo of one of my favorite quotes from Doctor Who.
"Every lonely monster needs a companion."
This tattoo symbolizes my struggle to find my companion in life. Having experienced two bad relationships as well as a couple rejections, I still haven’t given up in finding that companion that is for me.
