Hello my beautiful empaths!
I've been having trouble with a co-worker lately. We are really good friends, or at least we had been, but lately her energy has been causing me to have an aversion/irritation to her. I spoke with a psychic about this because it has gotten so bad. I dread hanging out with her or even talking to her sometimes and we share an office space. A psychic told me that she has a lot of negativity going on in her personal life and my aversion to that is because I'm feeling it. It's interesting, because I feel like before I was an aware empath I was more tolerant of these kinds of things, an now it's like even sometimes hearing her breath makes me annoyed. I feel really bad that mentally I can't be there for her like I feel like a good friend should.
Anyways, the woman advised that I try to back off and invite peace into my space, and they she would start to back off as I repel her negativity. It's just so hard when we share a room together. She said to burn a white candle, but I can't do that at work. What should I do? How can I invite peace into my work space. How do I set boundaries without hurting my coworkers feelings? She confides in me a lot about this guy she's been dating for years that treats her terribly and she insists on staying with him, she also complains a lot about our work. I get it, I've been with a bad guy before and our workplace isn't the best, but It's just too much for me now. It wasn't at first, but I guess as I've become more sensitive I've REALLY become more sensitive without realizing it. I don't enjoy feeling this way, but I also don't want to seem like a bad person.
