Have you ever been told that you’re too sensitive? That you need to have thicker skin? This does not mean there is something “wrong” with you – it could simply mean you are a highly sensitive person or an empath. There is a way to turn this perceived weakness into your secret super power but first, let’s establish your level of sensitivity.

Turn this perceived weakness into your secret super power. @terri_cole (Click to Tweet!)

In today’s video, I’m going to give you a list of signs, like a quiz, to help determine if you are indeed an empath.

In this Real Love Revolution video, I cover:

  • Signs You are an Empath
  • How to Protect Your Own Energy
  • How to Harness Your Empathic Powers
  • Identifying Your Empath Traits

The first indication of you being an empath is that people tell you that you’re very sensitive and seem to wear your emotions on your sleeve. Negativity also overwhelms you and you find that energy draining to be around. You don’t enjoy crowded places, like the mall, a large concert, a stadium, etc. You have excellent intuition and know about things that you’ve never been directly told. You are also extremely sensitive to pain and you feel other people’s’ feelings, which is exhausting as you are trying to process so many emotions and so much information all the time. People come to you with their problems and you are an excellent listener.


To learn more about whether you’re a highly sensitive person, download the full “Checklist: Signs You Are An Empath” to assess yourself and maybe those around you for empath traits. Once you know you’re an empath, you can find an easier, less overwhelmingly way to move through the world.
