Are you an EMPATH?

What is an empath?

Does your personality fall under the description of empaths?

In today’s world, empathy is much needed. Everyone is too consumed by their own needs and often forget that they might be hurting people along the way.

Awareness is the key in my opinion. Awareness leads to being mindful and eventually practicing empathy, no matter how difficult it may be.

Maybe I’m naive, maybe I’m idealistic… but I do believe that empathy can change the world, as cheesy as it sounds. The world definitely needs more of it!

I want to know…

How does one get peace of mind? Is it even possible?

How does one keep trying and fighting despite being exhausted?

How does one make the pain go away?

How does one overcome feelings of guilt, helplessness, suffocation, and shame about being left behind?

How does one express the magnitude of her feelings of abuse to someone who has never experienced torture?

How does one get to the finish line?

How does one stop and just move on?

Is there someone who knows? Because I want to know….

Empathy

What is empathy? Is it something that can be taught? As someone who considers herself as being able to sense energies and as being able to put herself in the other person’s shoes, I find that TIMING is so vital to being on the receiving end of someone opening up.

Why is it that some people do not think this way? Don’t get me wrong, I am talking about someone who genuinely loves me and wants to protect me. However, when it comes to being able to just listen to me and not say anything with judgement, or with the goal of “fixing” anything, it’s just so hard.

It makes me go back into my shell. It is so difficult for me to talk about my feelings because once I do, I am suffocating in the intensity and pain. I try to push past it, to keep the lines of communication open, but our mindsets are so different.

He has wonderful parents and had a wonderful childhood. Mine was the total opposite. He loves me deeply and often looks out for me. He is my safe place. But I often feel alone.

Maybe empathy has something to do with your own life experiences? Going through something similar as the other person enables you to authentically place yourself in their shoes— because you KNOW what it’s like? Am I making sense?

Or is it the usual ramblings of someone with chaos in her head? Am I alone as always?
