Can someone please help me.. I can see the writing on the wall but what next? Context below...

Hi,

When you state your current choices at the end of your post (keep doing the same or completely stop), I feel that neither of them are the right fit for you. 

I do feel that you have to do something or you'll emotionally bleed out, without being in a situation where you can receive the same kind of helpful care you provided.  If you burn out, you won't be able to help anyone at all, not even yourself.

The energy drain is drastic right now.  However, I feel that cutting off contact would create such an intense wave of guilt that it would be also very expensive, energy wise.  

When stated this way, it looks like you only have "bad" options.

My suggestion would be to start having a plan for this "energy expense", just like you would manage a financial budget. 

For example, set a time limit for:

1) How often you have contact with him (of any kind, including txt).  Once the limit is reach, just postpone answering until tomorrow. 

2) How long you interact (like phones calls are no longer than 30 minutes).

My last suggestion is actually related to being an Empath...

3) Use techniques to disengage from his energy when you are not directly interacting with him, such as Turning Down the Volume .  This would avoid the energy drain that comes from being tuned into his energy.

I hope this helps!

Whose energy is it?


Empath

Hi,

It's hard for empaths to sort out their feelings, since they feel just like ours...

Grounding is an essential Empath skill but it might not help here since the foreign feeling IS there.  You are feeling it.  So when you're grounding, you're just paying even more attention to that feeling inside you.

A quick way to sort this out that I use all the time is Turning Down the Volume.  It's the first technique in the Empath Survival Program.  By turning down what you pick up from other people (do NOT try to turn it off), what's left behind is yours.  

Ironically, it solves two problems: 1) Identifying feelings that are not yours 2) Preventing external feelings from affecting you.

I hope this helps!

Rene'': I don't see the music section any longer so I will post this here.  

Sorry @Rene, I am still trying to consolidate categories.  The "Art" category has been revised and you can post music there now :)

If you've been in the chat, you probably noticed that we've been saying hello right past each other.

Let's make a date so we can finally talk to someone who is there!  It's sure to be fun, crazy and probably a bit chaotic.  But mostly fun!

To open the Chat room, click on the Bubble on the right of your screen.

If you're on a mobile device, click the "chat" item on the top menu.

See you there!

Renee:

hey @eliselebeau are you able to put up a post re: the need to click that notifications tab in groups as there seems to be little activity in groups now. so whilst we are not wanting to post all topics in the main forum, this is the only place where there is any activity or consistent notifications from so i just wonder if all are aware that that notifications button is needed for groups? Thanks 

@renee

When  you want to follow a discussion in a group, you have to enable the notifications.  It's the same way in the forums but you do it only once for the entire forum.  For the groups, you have to do it in every group that you join, yes.

This isn't really a problem so I didn't see the use of making a ticket for this but is anyone else getting notifications about football?  I clicked on the link and it cannot be found.  I have nothing against football and I apologize if this is actual topic but I tried to find it before posting her. 

That was our very first spammer!  I caught it early though which is why all these posts are deleted :)  Always report SPAMMER, though.  It's worth it, in case I've missed one.

The site is up and running but I'm holding off sending email notification to everyone.  I'd rather try to fix problems with a small group of people than thousands!

I have spent over 80 hours in the last 7 days to get the website as close as possible to what we had before.  The thing is, it can't be "the same".  So bare with me as we all learn the ropes (me too!).

If you find something "weird", please create a Support ticket so I can fix it!  

  • Top Menu > Hover on your username
  • Click on Support
  • Click on Create New Ticket

Every ticket filed helps me make it better for the late birds :)

THANK YOU!
