Can anyone help me? Im an empath and it has lately been getting quite overwhelming. I live on a farm and we recentally had to "put a chicken out of it's misery" (it was hurt) while I had no part in this, I did pick up some feelings from the chicken. My heart started to race and I felt scared and almost threw up.
Normally I'm not around hen this type if thing happens, but it was just a wrong-place-wrong-time event that has mentally and emotionally scarred me.
Now, I know that empathy can't be turned off, but I was wondering if anybody had any tips on how to deal with it or dull it a bit.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
