    I have been told I’m an Old Soul. Reading the 27 signs of an Empath, I identified w/most of them. A few, not so much. I work in the retail industry, specialized product line, desired by most. My customer interactions can he extremely energy draining, in a REGULAR basis. Many time, I’ve ridden home from work in complete silence…trying to decompress.
    I find myself engaged in conversations with complete strangers, they wanting to share their entire life with me. While I’m kind and understanding with them, I’m EXHAUSTED upon completion of their transaction.
    But, I’m glad to be of assistance to these souls.
