To be an empath is the greatest gift of all. however, to answer your question...
If you're empathic, does not make you a psychic.
If you're psychic, does not naturally make you empathic.
one trait does not have to do with the other.
Many psychics are not always an empath, but they make excellent readers due to being
objective during a reading. Being emotional or an empath can cloud your clarity when reading
for someone else.
that's why it's hard to read for yourself. becoming too attached or too emtionally attachedj to a situation can cloud your judgment.
when you read for someone you are emotionally attached will not have the same results as reading for someone you're not close with.
for example.. my girlfriend comes to me to ask for a reading on her current boyfriend she's having issues with. Well, I've met the boyfriend, and from the get go, I do not like him at all.
It would not be fair to her or myself, because I can't possibly do a reading objectively and give her an honest assessment because of my emtional attachment to not liking her boyfriend.
She is better off seeking a reader she does not know or never met before... in that way, the reader does not care one way or another.
as for you contining to seek out men that are immature, shallow, and lack empathy for you.
this is the advice you need to adhere to and make those changes you are so afraid of changing yourself first.
change your social outlets. they're toxic and are not your friends, and the men you're meeting are really boys and not real men. they may look like real men, but inside are shallow selfish idiots.
Things change when you have changed. Everything around you will change providing you have really changed. until you change your ways, your toxic social life, nothing will ever change until YOU CHANGE FIRST>
