I wish I wasnt an empath

Life can throw punches at you and you may feel like you wish you were never born at times, 2 kids and almost 3 decades later I still find myself thinking like this. Sometimes life is good but I miss the ‘great’ of life. Living freely and just having fun without worrying about the future, the kids or work. I basically need time just to myself and to recharge. I feel like my life is passing me and I am just standing on the side and doing whatever it instructs me to do.

Being the empath that I am, I take almost everything emotionally and I wish I could control it, I try not to sometimes or at least try to pretend like I can control it and just ignore whatever is going on. Empathy is supposed to be a good thing, I think it is a super power but it can be very dangerous. if you are like me, you probably don’t know how to use it positively. I used to resent it, imagine hating having so much care for others, doesn’t sound right hey? Love and care should be a good thing. But, when you know you love too much and not knowing when to stop? That’s another story.

What frustrates most empaths is that it can make them hate themselves because they are at the risk of loving people they shouldn’t be or they can be prone to being taken advantage of.

If you are an empath and it devastates you , please know that I genuinely understand, I empathise with you. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you are an empath, shout ‘super empath’! below, I would really like to meet my family

    I wouldnโ€™t call myself an empath, but I do know that empaths are indeed shinning lights sent by God. Life actually do pass us by every now and then, but we must also remember to grab it sometimes and do live it! Please do recharge and feed your flames, your light is needed.โค๏ธ

  2. Empath here and present! It can be so draining, especially when you’re around negative people. I practice consciously ‘stepping out’ of emotions that aren’t mine by imagining myself stepping out of a puddle. It’s not foolproof but it helps ๐Ÿ™‚

      Nice to hear I am not on my own. Being an empath is actually a beautiful thing, we just need to use it better. I am happy to hear you are able to control it, I struggle but eventually I calm myself down by telling myself positive things. It is hard but we need to survive ๐Ÿ™‚

    Probably a medium empath. At least enough of one that I felt your discouragement as I read.
