Cover design or artwork by
Empathy is that sought after but seemingly elusive ability where you are able to truly connect to another person. To understand intimately what they feel, to know where they are coming from because you feel it too. Empathy is that craved for ability, available to all, the human attribute needed in order to feel connected, part of something greater than ourselves. It is an ability that can be enriched and honed. Without it we are alone, forever separate, standing on the shore of life without the ability to reach out and touch others, no way to feel any sense of belonging, of being a part of a family, community, nation or race no way to find validation of your own experiences through others. For without empathy we are truly alone even when swimming in a vast sea of other people.
Empathy for the empath it can be just the opposite. It can be very confusing, painful and frustrating for them feeling everything. Feeling everything other people feel yet they may not have any idea what they feel themselves. They can have no idea what feelings, emotion, and ideas are theirs and what are not.
Empathy itself is not well defined yet by either the psychological or scientific communities but is coming under closer scrutiny and being studied. It is a much broader subject with more nuances and aspects to it than most people are aware of with many ways to approach the subject of empathy itself.
What is even less understood is the fact that it is a skill that can be refined, bolstered and used for the betterment of all, particularly the empath. By honing their skill with empathy the empath frees themself to consciously choose when, where, with whom, how much of and why they will use their empathy rather than being at the mercy of inadvertent connection wherever there attention is taken. Not Crazy, Confessions of a Closet Empath leads the empath and sensitive soul through the first steps in gaining mastery of their marvelous gift that empathy is. Helping them begin to grasp what they have been dealing with all their life and another way to use the gifts empathy brings to benefit themselves and those around them.
