Sheltering your own soul while trying to help others


Empath

Athena,

Thank you for sharing. Its comforting to know I'm not the only one in this battle. I've lived through several very painful times in my relatively short life and it seems to amplify other's pain. I've tried to imagine the bright light of the Lord, shining through me at the top of my body and out me as a river if you will, of happiness nd light to those around me, especially those in pain. It seems to carry away some of my own hurt at the same time as it passes through. I find that method works better then just a bubble shield so I want to be able to help those around me, just not carry it with me always, rather then just have their pain bounce off my shields. This way seems to be always moving and cleansing, bright and golden like a shining river :) The imagine just in itself makes me calmer. lolol I understand why so many people don't understand us and this world lol It does sound very out there ;) Its nice to know others who live it :)

Sheltering your own soul while trying to help others


Empath

Sirah,

Your awesome. I love your light, thank you tons. Sometimes I feel like I'm so far from normal and become negative about my reality instead of realizing its a gift and a precious experience. The overwhelming nagging of the world to fit in. But then I remind myself I'm like a bright butterfly or beautiful fairy in a sea of people and feel lighter and pretty again :)

Thank you

Victoria

Sheltering your own soul while trying to help others


Empath

Hello All,

I must say I was very relieved and encouraged to find this website. I've been searching for a local support group for empaths and those who deal with our struggles but to no avail. I have recently, throughout the past year or so, discovered the source of why I am so much more sensitive and almost like a sponge to energy and feelings of others plus my own. The biggest struggle I have faced is how to keep from gathering so much energy in the form of pain or fear from others. It can be false fear, like in a movie, or true emotions of another. I gather it, unwillingly sometimes, so much that it becomes an actual pain in my body. I've had panic attacks for the past 5 or 6 years and even though I have many demons in my past as I'm sure we all do, I could never understand why I had them and had finally just blamed it on some fear I held and was reminded of at those moments. The more I learn about this whole world, the more I see it in myself. But it doesn't make it easier to understand sometimes, and I become more confused then before lol I've chalked most of it up to, and this is what I've tried explaining it to my bf, that I suck in others energy, without my knowing or wanting to, and it overwhelms me with whatever emotions they have. Sounds like I need a shrink lol

My biggest challenge has been shielding myself. I've always been the one who fixes others pain and am realizing that I somehow need to guard my own soul if I want to continue to be able to help others.

Any guidance or experiences anyone would like to share about how they cope with this, I'd be so grateful to read them. Thank you so much <3

Is it worth taking a risk for Empaths to be in a romantic relationship?


Empath

I've been in my relationship with my bf for 6 years but just finally understood, in the past year or so how empaths relate to the world. He has been very supportive, even if he does not always understand my journey. I think beautiful souls can always be in a loving relationship, if it is with the right person. They should not add to your struggles or make your heart heavy but instead bring calmness nd clarity into your life. It sounds like you've been doing alot of work on yourself to govern your own feelings nd control which is great. I'd be open to love, but always cautious of trusting too soon. Let your heart nd soul guide you and best wishes
