Attention: energetically overwhelmed empaths!
If you're reading this, you may identify as a highly sensitive empath, who is able to pick up - and even absorb - other peoples' energies.
However, many empathic people are `overwhelmed empaths' (meaning that their high empathy has gone into a state of overdrive.)
Here are some signs you too are an overwhelmed empath:
You feel other peoples' emotions vividly and profoundly, and have trouble shaking off the energies afterwards, even after the other person has moved on
You often have a hard time working out whether you're feeling your own energies and emotions, or someone else's
You have become a hermit and withdrawn socially in order to avoid other people's energies
You cannot visit crowded places such as shopping centres, stadiums, train stations, or nightclubs because the energies are so overwhelming
You feel physical aches and pains, or manifest physical signs of nervousness or sickness, around certain people
When it comes to movies, TV and books, you do not like watching or reading anything that features sad or difficult experiences for the characters
You often find yourself playing the role of counsellor and caretaker in your relationships and friendships, but you find it a draining role to take on
You often wish that other people would follow your advice and get their lives back on track
Your relationships are a source of obligation and stress, either because you self-sacrifice, have a hard time saying `no' to people, or take it upon yourself to help others with their problems
You feel like your empath gifts are a curse, and you wish you could be less sensitive.
If you resonated with the above statements, the usual advice for empaths that you will find in many books and online articles (such as boundaries, lifestyle adjustments, and shielding visualisations) are NOT effective for you as an overwhelmed empath.
They avoid the root causes of the problem - a bit like putting a sticking plaster on an infected wound.
