In the last years I've worked a lot on getting out of a bad case of empath overwhelm (as in, going to the corner shop is overwhelming) towards a state where I feel human most days and joyful on many, can travel, work, and deal with myself and other people much better.
This was a long and complicated journey involving so many different things; food, health, understanding basic psychology, learning to deal with trauma triggers, emotional intensity, processing old pain, using mindfulness, buddhism, bodywork, various body awareness practices, a myriad of empath and psychology and energy tools. Finding an honest spiritual basis. A lot of self-confrontation.
Recently I've started writing some of this down, in part for fun/to get the thoughts out of my head, in part because nobody ever gave me a recipe book or "manual" that had all the elements I needed (and I think everyone needs different ones, but I needed lots!); a lot of that stuff was really hard to find and took years, and some of it I had to make up – so I thought, maybe other people could get something out of it, too. Feel free to skim, share, comment, or get into conversations with me.
I'm hoping to improve and expand on this content with your feedback.
