Those closest to me know that I am not particularly good at expressing my feelings or asking for what I want. My style of speech is often slow, measured and careful. This week I finally related all of this to being an empath.
***** I am careful how I express myself because I am so sensitive to how the other person responds. It upsets me so deeply if I upset the person I am talking to. *****
Next stage of my journey on this planet is going to include enhancing my ability to "speak the sweet truth" despite the fact that it may not be comfortable for either me or the people around me. I am truly blessed with having many tools and people to help me (and others) to do this.
I am curious though ... this seems like a topic that surely will resonate for many in our community of empaths. I am looking forward to reading your responses on this topic. Are you aware of suppressing your self-expression because you are an empath? What have you done to help the process of opening up? What other insights do you have?
P.S. I love this community and my continued gratitude to Elise for making it possible
