Default Empath

How many are empaths on this site, I know that I am one and I am so emotionally drained right now and exhausted, I just want to cry because I dont know what to do, I feel like every one and everything is taking my energy away and everyone is putting so many demands on me, I need some alone time, I need to be free from all the drama and toxic ******** surrounding me, I am sorry, I just wanted to vent and dont know what to do to recharge myself and feel better

I am an empath but rarely ever focus on it. I do understand being overwhelmed by people and find that separating myself physically from places/people for a time helps me to be okay with my version of the world. I cannot watch tv at all.

It's also important to set up boundaries with people. Don't let them use you as an emotional trash can. Despite the fact that you can feel can feel what others are feeling at times you are not responsible for fixing them.

Hope others here can give you some ideas to re-energize.

How do you feel when you spend time out in nature (like going a hike)?

I'm an empath with very weak boundaries - not a great combination - I usually recharge by doing something special for myself like getting a massage or reiki treatment, or sometimes just listening to music helps.

I'm am Empath to. It can be quite exhausting. But over all it is rewarding. I need to find a balance between my own energy and the energy of others taking over me. Difficult stuff.

Default Re: Empath

I'm an empath. I know because I've had several experiences where I was overcome with emotion without any other cause or reason.

Once such example was when I was in a car with my mother and I saw a funeral procession going the other way. I felt such raw emotion at the sight of it that tears came to my eyes. I think I was feeding off of the emotions of the people in their cars as they drove solemnly by. I didn't know any of the people in the procession, nor the person whom the funeral was for, but I could feel their sorrow, all the same.
