Is It Just Me Who Attracts Narcissists/ Sociopaths?


Empath

That's an interesting way to look at it.

It's crazy to see how many of you have had the same experiences,

Luckily, no one in my family but my brother has narc tendencies.

I'm still trying to stay away from my narc ex, but he is so intoxicating to me, still- even at a distance.

What do empaths do for a living?


Empath

I am studying to become a counselor, and my ultimate goal is to become a psychologist. Cliche, no?

Fight or flight response


Empath

Thank you for posting this!

To answer your question: Yes, I have experienced a similar sensation. Some advice: Have good boundaries. You are in a role at work, and this role has certain responsibilities. It's hard when you're an empath, because you empathize so much with people. but keeping that boundary will make it easier. You're not punishing anyone after all- you're just playing a role, a role that isn't harming anyone :]

PS: Your post made me realize something about myself. I always have found that I don't like confrontation, and during a debate, I almost change my opinion sometimes. I didn't realize it, but it is for the reason you said- that I feel so in tune with others that I really "get" their point of view. Thanks for mentioning this!

Any empaths have digestive problems?


Empath

YES yes and YES.

I have ulcerative colitis, and severe acid reflux. Messy, right?

I am struggling with my abilities, so it could be a result of not being centered.

Hope you feel better soon :]

Is It Just Me Who Attracts Narcissists/ Sociopaths?


Empath

Hello fellow empaths!

Hope the start of your weekend has gone well :]

I have always found that the nearest narcissist or sociopath in an 11 mile radius ends up trying to romance me. They're drawn to me. I was wondering if anyone else here has had the same experience?

One google search, and I seem to find a wealth of information on this very thing!

I wonder why this is? Maybe, part of us is attracted to them- their internal quiet. Like there's no noise- everything is calculated. There's no intense energy, except when they're mad.

Empath or Profiler?


Empath

What I meant by 'spectacular profiler' was just what you said.

I agree. I can not even be looking at someone and feel something from them. It's nice to know that other people feel the same way.

Empath or Profiler?


Empath

I've found information online that states that empaths are actually just spectacular profilers. I can't help but feel that there is more to it than this. What do you guys think?
