It’s tough dealing with your own emotions on a daily basis, but what if you’re also dealing with everyone else’s? If you can deeply feel others’ feelings, if you can actually feel the mood in a room, you’re probably an empath!

But it goes beyond just being able to sense what others are feeling. Robin Scott is the founder of The Diary of an Empath, a resource to help fellow empaths understand their abilities and live an authentic, empathic life.
