That article I just reposted is THE best thing I’ve read in ages about empaths. And I’ve been reading A LOT about all of this lately, though mostly in physical book form.
It has been bringing me peace, clarity and explanations to what I’m going through and searching for right now. Or I’m just completely losing my mind which is also a very strong and real possibility.
For the first time in my life I’m embracing my feelings and emotions and that’s quite terrifying for a person who has perfected the art of dodging, stuffing down, and trying to hide this ability from others for four decades.
All of that, all those years, has completely drained and exhausted me. Now I think it’s time I embrace it as it’s clear I have no other choice. So I’m trying to learn a fine balance of letting myself feel my own emotions but at the same time protecting myself from other people’s energies regardless if they’re physically near me or not. It’s a lot like a dam or levee or teeter-tawter, I guess.
I’ve spent a lifetime trying to ignore, block, hide it all from others and deny my so called “abilities” because all that shit is crazy and not real. Oh. It’s real alright. I can’t deny that anymore. Call it spirituality if that makes you feel more comfortable.
But now I’m trying to figure out “so now what with all of this”? What exactly am I supposed to do with it?
Some closure would be nice.
