We’ve all been there – growing up, you lose a part of yourself that’s made you special. Empaths, however, experience a special pain when they lose their powers.

1. People tell you you’re no longer as empathetic as you used to be.

2. You were once so close with your partner, but now you look at them and feel nothing.

3. You used to see auras, but you don’t anymore.

4. Computers and electronics fucked up around you all the time when you were an empath, but they don’t anymore.

5. When you were looking in the mirror, a part of your soul visibly departed your heart, and since then you feel very little.
