100 Words – Empath

Linda’s childhood was horrific. Everyone, everywhere, screamed their emotions at her. She didn’t know what was happening to her and didn’t understand that not everyone felt everyone else’s feelings. She found that certain drugs and alcohol could calm the screaming enough for her to function.

It wasn’t until a college psychology class that she learned she was an empath. She cried for three days under the weight of understanding. Emerging with a new life plan.

Now she makes a mint on the psychic fair circuit. Her life is still hellish, and she still drinks heavily, but at least she’s rich.
