Although I'm kind hearted and all about caring, when I'm wronged I have an angry side to me that unleashes. Mostly in my words. Sometimes they're not even thought of, but just flow out.


I know for a fact pacifists don't take too kindly to being provoked or harmed. Although we are peaceful by nature, we will defend ourselves in every way possible.



I've known myself to make others cry and hurt by what I say, but deep down it was not intended. So my question is are all empaths this way and what makes us so volatile when provoked?

Yes, I hold stuff in til I can't hold it no more and that's when I explode. All that built up rage and abuse flows out like a river of emotion.

Hmmmm,I use to wonder if *as an empath* I wasn't actually mirroring back the same energy that offended me in the first place.I mean I know I get angry, and I'm not talking about *every time I get angry*, but the more I learned about mirror neurons, I began to wonder if my over-reactions weren't just a mirror image of the same energy that shot out at me.Like a ping pong effect.I tend to only get angry when I see deliberate cruelty. But even that is changing as I learn.The more I learn, the less I know.

I am too. It's because I'm quiet. They suspect quiet people to be mad about something.

I usually anger slowly...but once angered be afraid....be very afraid!! It's best to just step away and don't push the buttons cause it will not be pretty. For the most part I can catch it and walk away before it hits the fan, but sometimes I get blind-sided.

Np. The same goes for me,. Since I keep a lot in, I have a lot of anger, and it comes out when I am frustrated, annoyed or...angry. I have a tendency to not think straight and just do whatever comes to mind if the moment calls for it.But.......yes, I have to and am working on talking things out so I won't be so uptight anymore.

Yes we are Sarah. :)

I believe this, including everyone's own personal story proves that there is a correlation between pacifists and or empaths and an inner fury. I've known this for years.

Blessed be,

Jonny.

I often bite my tongue cuz I know how raw my words can be. There's many a time when someone says something to me and I just wanna jump all over them but I censor myself and act classy which the inner me hates.
