coming out of the Empath closet
Hello fellow Empaths
I feel compelled to put this out here today. I am sitting behind my keyboard gripped with fear, anxiety and every other overwhelming emotion. I have decided that I am not going to hide in the Empath closet any longer! I am going to start being true to myself and to others. I am going to let people know I am an Empath and what that means in my life. Now some people may not know how to take that. That's fine. I have a feeling people I know are going to think I am crazy and that's fine. But I can no longer hide who I am for the sake of others. Because honestly, as an Empath it is making me ill. If I am sick then I am no good to anyone else.
I have known I am Empath now for many years and I practice trying to protect myself. But lately, it's been difficult. There have been alot of personal issues going on in my life and I have had a chance to re-evaluate it. Now I have decide to take my life in a whole new direction. A direction that I know in my heart is going to be the best for me.
To be honest the whole thing terrifies me. I am really fearful of doing this. Stopping and switching rails mid-way through your life is hard.
I can not live in fear any longer! The longer I live in fear the longer it wins. The longer I stay ill. Today, I am standing in the face of fear. I am opening the closet door and stepping outside! Who know's where it is going to take me, but I know it can only get better because worse has already happened!
I wish you all a wonderful day, and please be true to yourself! Let us all stop hiding our Empath selves because we can only make the world a better place!
