Empaths are not victims; they are people with strong gifts. They can be strong and sometimes they have to work harder at it because they are always picking up the emotions of people around them, both positive and negative.
Most people would never understand what an empath is going through, and they will for sure never understand what making a relationship work is all about.
Empaths are very sensitive people and they pick up the energies of things and people around them. They often are stressed out and tired because they are so overwhelmed by the energies that they often make bad decisions. This is one of the reasons that being an empath can be hard to balance.
Relationships with family, friends and a lover can be hard for empaths because they are so sensitive to the emotions of others.
Being a Warrior
Being an empath is a gift, but it can also sometimes feel like a curse. There is no way to escape the energies around you and when you feel that you are overwhelmed, you often will want to shut out everything and spend time to just be with yourself.
Picking up the energies of other people makes you special and that means you are highly compassionate and caring and you want to see everyone else change for the better.
If you are an empath, the problem is that being in a relationship can be a struggle because of the deep feelings that you have.
Loving people that are hurting can cause you to hurt. This doesn’t mean that you cannot do better, you have to learn to protect yourself and improve who you are if you want a relationship to work.
Here are some tips you can use to balance your life and your relationships:
Negative feelings and emotions are not bad, but they can cause you to have more negative feelings and emotions. When you are with someone and they are experiencing pain, you will pick that up to and this is part of learning from life. There is nothing that you can fix fast because you do not need fixing, but you need to learn to embrace what is going on to you.
You cannot change how you feel, and you need to be kind to yourself. You do not always have to be happy and when you feel sad or angry it is okay.
It is okay for you to be fine even when people around you are suffering. You do not have to be responsible for everyone else’s feelings and you cannot be. You have to let them experience their life so they can grow.
You do not always have to say yes. You have to set boundaries and be able to say no when you do not want to do something or feel something. You are not selfish for saying now.
Take Time Alone
When you feel that you are overwhelmed and you just need to be alone, be alone. You can accept yourself better when you take time for yourself. Do not resist having time alone.
You may sometimes feel that the world is shaking you and you are falling apart at the seams. When this happens, know that there are people that value you and love you.
Being an empath does not make you weak, as a matter of fact, you are some of the strongest people out there. Become wise about who you are and know that you are just what the universe wanted you to be. Embrace yourself and love who you are, and everything will fall in place for you.
