I am an Empath. An Empath, or Empathic Person, can quite literally feel the “energy” or, feelings, or drama around the people we are connected to in our daily lives. For example I am quite close with the folks I work with. We are both colleagues and friends I have often surprised her by knowing what emotions she is feeling and she hasn’t ridden to work yet.
In one of my Empath groups, a member ask what should be done. The ex of the relationship was mean, manipulative and quite enjoyed messing with the supposed girlfriend. To the point if possible harm. The friend of this person, and the ex who’s the sociopath. She wanted to warn the new girlfriend, but also wanted advice from other Empath. My opinion is that We Empaths Re special and need to follow a different set of rules. My answer to her is below.
As Empath, we want to save the world. It’s what we expect of our selves because we know so much. The thing is, in most cases, people need to learn their lesson it the hard way. And, because folks don’t understand how we can “know” what we know, they will not believe nor want to hear what we have to say. It may very well be part of that persons life lesson, the lesson their soul must learn; and, telling them may set them on a course that is less favorable or completely different from the path of the lesson they must learn.
My Nana always used to say MYOB, mind your own business, but feel free to offer support, kindness and love after the fact. She also told me that I must never tell them I knew it was going to happen, because it will make it worse for them or myself. And besides, no one, including we Empath, like to hear “I told you so”.
We are the support system for the human race. Because we feel what they feel, we are capable of helping to pick of the pieces of a shattered life. I feel it’s my responsibility. So I offer comfort and understanding where I can, but keep the “woo-woo” stuff to myself. Close family and friends, too, if they are directly effected.
