Whatever you do, be very careful of the company you keep...Be very selective in who you choose to associate with and don't just befriend every troubled person that needs an ear...
and don't make yourself obligated by saying "but nobody else will be there for them"cos ultimately your responsibility is first to yourself and other adults are not your exclusive moral responsibility (unless they are your child or animal is the way I see it.)
You need to be this way in order to protect yourself from getting drained.
If you do choose to befriend someone whose troubles you will inevitably take on being an Empath, make sure that they are indeed worth the sacrifice...and that they have your back at all costs and are true reciprocators as well, otherwise you will just end up feeling used and bitter. Alternatively, learn to not expect anything in return.
I have never known any True Empaths in real life apart from my mum but I noticed energy still gets sapped regardless when S suddenly became incredibly exhausted and was unable to sleep when I did for no other apparent reason. In any case I am glad to know she doesn't mind because we both have the same high mindset to the concept of Friendship.
Strangely, feeling somewhat a fish out of water in the city in terms of having spiritual friends physically around...I feel very blessed to have some great friendships in odd places. It is quite bizarre how random strangers you have never met can actually be so generous with their hearts and minds :)
