Getting too emotionally involved too quickly..


Empath

Just curious to see if this is an "empath" thing, or just a sensitive and emotional person thing..

Everytime I am seeing a guy, things seem to turn out the same way,

I met a guy (I'm a freshman in college), he lives in my dorm just a few floors above me. He was really great company. We spent a lot of time just laying together, watching shows, cuddling, talking, and just being in each others company. I am scared of commitment due to past heartbreak, so when he wanted to turn what we had into something more, I basically told him I wasn't on the same page. He is now talking to someone else, and I feel like a complete crazy person for being really bummed about it, I mean after all I am the one who told him I didn't want a relationship. I crave having that "person" I think. We only were "talking" for a month and a half or so..why do I get so emotionally attached?? HELP

which category of explanation do you find most promising?


Empath

Hm, I think that is is purely spiritual...empaths are put where they are needed to heal and understand the situations that they will endure..

Empaths: What kind of people do you attract?


Empath

I ALWAYS attract people who seem to be at an emotional low point...people who need a lot of attention, which is ultimately draining.

Disoriented Feeling?


Empath

Seems like depersonalization/derealization to me also...

empaths and college


Empath

hey all-

I know a lot of you know (because you have helped me so much already)....that it's my first year in college and I am really struggling.

I feel like I am not supposed to be here.

Did any of you go/are any of you going now?? I could use some insight. I don't feel like I should be here but I don't know where I should be. I don't know what I want to do yet and it's making it hard. I don't want to be here wasting money but I don't know what I could be doing instead.

thank you!!!

Empathy and career paths..


Empath

Hey all- hope you are doing well!!

I am in college- it's my first year. I am currently undeclared on my major but I want to start narrowing my focus to a few things because I currently do not have the slightest clue about what I want to do. My interests are mostly spiritual...I don't know how to integrate that into a career field that I will love. I want to enjoy what I do...

What are your jobs?? Are you happy? Do you wish you went a different path?

Would love to discuss..thank you!

Empath

Currently I am undeclared. There is so much I want to explore...I will probably start a new topic about good career paths for empaths..I don't even know where to begin.

I really hope you give veganism a try...you will feel such a positive difference.

Parents


Empath

Are you scared that they won't understand? Are they spiritual at all? Start there...then add in the empath thing....

what makes you happy?


Empath

Nothing makes me more happy than meeting super warm and open people. Some people you look into their eyes and feel like they just "know" you...you know?? It's the most amazing thing. Also, having a conversation with someone new and having so many aligning beliefs is always amazing. Just connecting human to human...good stuff!!!

Empath

Hi- good for you for starting to make the switch!! It can be hard but it is so so worth it. My main advice would be to get super educated. Once you know the info, you won't ever look back. I suggest

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09b0mz0hgLU

these videos resonated with me in an incredible way and I have been vegan ever since. Make sure you are eating enough...especially if you are going plant based!! You won't gain weight so you don't need to worry about overeating fruit/veggies/potatoes/ect...

I am a freshman in college and eat at the dining hall and have still been able to find really decent options. For me, the hardest part is the criticism I get from people who are uneducated on the subject. Try carrying around nuts/vegan bars/ect...make sure to listen to your body if you ever feel weak! Lots of love and well wishes!!!!

Empaths and parties


Empath

Hey all-

it's my second week at college and I am going out for the first time tonight. I have been telling my roommate "maybe tomorrow" for 14 days so I decided I need to go out once just to try it...

So I am incredible nervous..mostly I am scared I may have a panic attack. I just want to be a normal student who can go out, let loose, and have a good night. Any tips??

I don't do well partying...I prefer to have a wine night in with my best friend and that is about as far as it goes- lol.

Any thoughts, tips, or suggestions?? I am definitely going out...I need to try it before I judge it I feel like.....just incredible uneasy. thank you!!!!!!!!

It's almost impossible to be selfish


Empath

Totally relate and agree to the both of you. I have a hard time remembering to take care of myself because I enjoy putting all of my love and energy into others. It's important to step back and evaluate what you need to do for YOURSELF from time to time because you are worth it and you deserve it too. Never feel bad about being selfless, it is such a gift.

xo, Erika

out of control. .


Empath

What is it that sets you off? Pin point it and then analyze it. Try to feel but then alter your reaction...

If you better understand it then explaining it to your husband will be easier..I'm sure he will understand and if not, someone on here will and we can try to help.

So this is new. Any advice for a unique situation?


Empath

People have given me the advice I gave you many times, and I struggle with it still..it can be so hard!! Let yourself have fun and just go for it. If something goes wrong you never have to see him again;) hehe. Keep us updated on how it all unfolds!

Empath

This all makes perfect sense and is very common with empaths. Opening up can be very hard, just remember to trust yourself and lead with your heart..you are in your head about the whole thing. You deserve love and you deserve to be loved fully!! Try to relax and trust in yourself to say things as they need to be shared or expressed. I have been left in a relationship because whenever I was asked something personal, my response is always " I don't know." The reality is that I know, and I know exactly what I want to say, but I'm scared of being judged for letting my guard down and truly being me. Does this sound similar to how you might be feeling? I feel like I can relate with you on this...just try to trust yourself and know that you are enough and you are so worthy. Let yourself be embraced with love. All the best, Erika

This is a pain we are all feeling together...it is so hard. Sometimes I can't even leave my room. It feels nice to know even though we may all be apart, we are not alone in our struggle

Out of Body Experience


Empath

This is something I have been experiencing a lot lately. I have noticed when I am overwhelmed or uneasy and talking to someone, I space and and am completely incapable of tuning back in..sometimes I will realize I had no clue what our conversation was about after we have it. I also often get paranoid after this happens..it is so dreamlike and makes you question how different all of our realities are..
