I was labeled as "Too empathic." There's no such thing as being too empathic towards fellow human beings. Hypersensitive people should learn to use their emotions to help those in need, not suppress them to become cold and ruthless, treated as if they were diseased. Of course there remains the issue of trust, but you'd know it isn't much of an issue for someone who is able to peer beyond the mask of sanity.
It's only a problem to distinguish between those who genuinely seek help and those who wish you harm when you're oblivious to your emotional side.
Or perhaps you'd feel more at ease in a world where the entire population was solely composed of sociopaths. Selflessness never brought anything good into this world, right?
