Are you an empath? Empathy is defined as having the ability to listen to or observe someone and have your heart go out to them. But empathy, or being empathetic is different from being an empath. An empath is someone who literally feels other people’s emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in their own bodies.
As a result, empaths are often sought out for guidance, support, and connection. This is a powerful gift and can give empaths a tremendous sense of purpose and importance. However, like all powers, being an empath has its downsides. If you’re not aware of your empathic tendencies and you don’t know how to manage this gift, it can easily leave you feeling emotionally and physically drained.
Tune in this week to get some much-needed control over your empathic tendencies. I’m sharing why many people find being an empath so exhausting, and I’m giving you the tools you need so next time you jump in the proverbial pool to save someone, you don’t end up drowning yourself.
