When an empath is around another empath
I had a very good friend who was also an empath. I was so happy to have her in my life, as we both could help each other out with what we were experiencing. we used to hang out alot.
She was a movie buff...I couldnt sit in the same room as her while she went through all the emotions attached to watching movies, it completely spun me out or buzzed me out. I remember vividly watching a thrilling movie with a group of friends and her energy just filled the room and made me feel like I was about to take off into outter space. I had to walk into the backyard to ground and differentiate my energy again.
Her dark moments used to claw at me too. Its almost as if she just let her energy flow freely into the world with no care.
We didnt make it long as mates as her energy was ruthless and I didnt endulge her. She found others to support her needs, others whom didnt feel as deeply.
Having genuinely empathic friends is wonderful, as long as we can all keep our energies from bubbling over and spinning people out. I suppose after all that...she taught me to shield in a short period of time, as I had no choice to or I would be on her emotional rollercoaster.
