It's challenging facing conflict when you are an empath, especially when you are unexperienced. This is due to the fact that you could be picking up the other persons anger, and having it mix with your own, which doesn't help.

I'd say I deal with conflict fairly well. I don't allow another persons anger to get to me, while at the same time saying calm about the situation.

I would recommend practicing breathing techniques, and if you do find yourself in a situation where you are faced with conflict, I would advise you mentally take a step back and evaluate the situation, before going calmly about resolving it. A trick I like to use is to imagine blue energy swirling around me in a bubble, where all noises sound distant. It gives me a kind of calm-watery feeling.

Let me know if that helps!

My ability to deal with conflict peaked when I went through a very stressful situation at the age of 12 (I almost lost a family member). After that, my ability to stay calm under ANY sort of stressful situation was a lot greater. So yes, I would say that's similar to practicing. It's all about getting your own emotions under control.

As for actual conflict, I try to avoid it. If that isn't possible, then I will stay calm and procede from there. I think your "blackout" feeling is the overwhelming emotions that you are picking up. If it gets to that point, I would recommend leaving the room. Passing out can be dangerous, especially if you hit your head.

I've realized that visualization is a powerful tool when it comes to being an empath. (at least for me) You can come up with your own technique that suits you and your abilities.

Lol...I laugh at myself too....I find anger brings out a lot of silly phrases...and ugly faces...sometimes my own responses make me laugh...or someone in my head sais something to make me laugh at the most inappropriate time....and I can't help it...but I like the laugh...it relieves some of my own tension and I can walk away.with a smile on my face even if the other person is insulted thinking I don't care...if they're insulting me or verbally attacking me for no reason...they deserve to be laughed at...but ya...it does add a bit of heat to an already hothead...lol
