Today I’m addressing the empaths, the highly sensitive people, and those who have opinions on either of those categories.
As someone who is called an empath, I feel things on a very deep level. I’m sensitive to energy and emotions.
I am also very logical and that is my duality. One side of me is all about “the feels” and the other side of me is all about “the thinks”(Gemini Sun, Libra Moon, INFJ). And that’s okay because there is room for both.
Just because the world tells you that being cold and unfeeling is the key to strength, that doesn’t make it so. If you are an empath or highly sensitive person, you don’t have to change your nature. There is nothing wrong with you.
What you might have to change is your perspective and/or the situations you put yourself in.
Your job is not to carry the problems of the world on your back- your back will be broken, you will get no gratitude, and you’ll also be stuck with those medical bills and there is no empath insurance coming to ease those costs.
It’s not honorable to let yourself be run down and dragged through the mud just because you are a highly sensitive person. The world needs you to be strong, not run down. Don’t let anyone tell you that your sensitivity is inherently a weakness. Your sensitivity can help you get more of what you want out of life if you know how to use it. Uncontrolled sensitivity is a liability, but when you put yourself in a place of power you will find that controlled sensitivity is quite the asset.
Just because emotions are there, it doesn’t mean they have to be absorbed. It is possible to block them and even redirect them into a positive force in your life. This is alchemy 101. You need to learn to alchemize.
Now let’s switch gears.
If you are NOT a person inclined to sensitivity, it’s really not your place to insist others be more like you. How about YOU be like you, you enjoy yourself, and let others live their lives. Because there will come a time when you will need sensitivity and understanding, and the one you are going to run to is the one who gives off that energy you may be critiquing. You can’t tell people “you are too sensitive but be sensitive when I need you to help me”. Well you can, but it’s really not that productive.
Whether you are a sensitive person or not, the point is we are all inhabiting the same space at this point in time. Let’s learn to see the wholeness and balance of it all.
To all the empaths out there- you need to discover the gift that you are walking with. Join my insider’s list and I’m going to help you go from feeling tired, overwhelmed, and run down to feeling empowered, motivated, and like you can manifest anything your heart desires.
