Many people ask me why I don’t practice my profession as a Nurse. For my first year of holding the title of a “Nurse” as my profession, I always answered them in this way – “Yeah it’s a nice profession but Nurses here in our country doesn’t get the right salary. Others are being paid but their salary is below minimum. Many are volunteers which is not acceptable.” After, they will have this follow up question – ” so, why did you take that course?”. My answer will be – “my family wanted me to”. Then, end of discussion.
As I continued my life outside the medical world, my interests in Witchcraft came back. I studied Wicca, Paganism, Witchcraft, Psychic, Tarot Reading, Crystals, and other things that a practitioner needs to learn. One day, my friend told me that I am an Empath. OOKKKAAAYYY!???? I didn’t mind what he told me. At first, the word “empath” sounds familiar that i didn’t give time to learn more about it and how does it affect the entire “ME”.
Being an Empath is a gift not a curse or something bad. An empath will always be an empath until the day he/she dies. Be happy even though you’re going to be sad most of the time, many will drain you, feel things that might actually scares you, but hey look at the bright side – You have a gift to help others. (and many more; helping others is the most important thing for me on this matter)
When I knew that I am really an Empath, I felt a little bit scared and of course, happy! I had my duties at the hospital when I was still a student nurse, I felt the heavy feeling inside me. I didn’t want to admit it to myself but I actually kind of feel the pain, suffering and depression of the patients. During that time, I didn’t have any idea about empath so I don’t know how to cleanse myself from these negative energy that was attached on me. Later on, I was filled with negative energy and when I started to study Paganism and witchcraft, etc., I started to feel at ease. With every lesson, I find a new way to develop, to heal, and to protect myself from the things that a new world forgot.
