need advice from other empaths.


Empath

I agree with what Karen said. And it can be coming from someone else you are close to... but try that first and see how you feel.. It's hard sometimes being in a relationship.. I knew the instant my ex husband cheated on me. So, let us know how you are doing.

Feeling of needing to get out


Empath

Yes, Marriages, jobs and other relationships. Yes.

sensitivities(touch, hearing, smell, etc)


Empath

Yes to all the above. If I have a loose hair on my body, I will go nuts until I can get it off of me. And yet, real pain, I have chronic pain now, can not shut it out like I used to. Might be part of the reason it's so bad now.. I ignored it for too long and wasn't being proactive in changing some things that could have helped me now.

Noise is my major one! A barking dog will end up making me feel I am going into a rage response. I have to have a fan or aC, or heater going at all times, depending on the weather, to muffle outside noise. I love music, but will start to feel like my brain is 'dry'. That's the only way I can describe it. Some women's voices send me up the wall !!! I don't hear a word they are saying as I am too busy trying to tune out the noise.

I can not stand for my dog to brush by my legs. After about the third time, again, I am feeling the rage response... I really have to work on this one.. it's not like I can explain to her why she needs to stop.

There are certain people who I do not want to touch me. Yet I am a huger. If I get an uncomfortable feeling around someone and am already fighting off the negativity and noise, touching me is the last thing I need.

Have been spending way to much time alone. Sometimes I need exposure to put it behind me... And I have two times a year I am more sensitive that other. Summer and Winter. I just get weary from the whole thing sometimes..

Soul Ties


Empath

Can only share my own experience here. Some ties will never be cut or broken. I find these to be my best life teachers. My ties to my mom will always be there. Death separates us physically, but not emotionally or spiritually. I have ties with others that have transcended this humanness, but they are still with me.

The unhealthy ties, have no problem cutting those. Even tho it takes me time sometimes to realize they are unhealthy.. and if it can't be salvaged, then I cut ties and move on...The ties with the Sperm Donor was cut so many years ago, many many years before he died.. nothing lost there...

Is this common among other Empaths?


Empath

This for me too !! I have learned to say no ! And along with that, can weed out the 'users and abusers'. Those I stay away from as a general rule anyway.

In some ways I know now, that it wasn't healthy for me... I was not able to have the words or life experiance to help her. So it left me feeling inadequate. Guess we just send out something that lets people know we are safe to talk to.

Empath

Always, as long as I can remember. Even as a child. My parents, as dysfunctional as all that was, my mom always talked to me as if I were another adult.

I have had people be standing in line in the grocery store and tell me their life story. It is an honor, a blessing and curse when we are tired, Have our own stuff going on and we have no more room.

But I will always look at it as a blessing first. That is good that you send out that you have a safe space around you.

Absorbing Energies


Empath

I can't watch certain movies because I absorb the pain, but never the energy that I can remember. In a way, that's a good thing for you... I could use some extra energy.

Hope others can relate, but not me on this one.

A question for Empaths


Empath

I do the same thing. I have never looked at it like invading their privacy. I have no power where my insight takes me. and my intention, when I do realize I am 'there', is to see if I can help in any way... Sometimes it is just about observing... usually always there is a life lesson involved for me as well.

Mine is on overdrive right now, I am on another forum for another situation in my life.. and right now.. I am just having it coming to me in waves... so, ya, it happens... just from reading someones words or seeing a picture...

Ripped apart .


Empath

Thank you all for the replies.. just knowing there are others who understand helps.

Just from asking for help I let go of some of the energy that had me tailspinning. Taking all suggestions and seeing what fits..

I have read the Power of Now... and A New Earth. both are very good reads and have helped me... when I get hit in that 'spot', everything I know to be true shatters... no , not shatters, gets drowned out by all the noise of chaos. I am still intact...

After reading everyones very caring responses, and applying what I know to do, I could feel it retreat. I could feel my energy coming back... thank each of you from my heart for taking time to care. Namaste !

I will check this out.. I have already gone thru the myriad trauma healing. But with Fathers day coming up, and an anniversary of sorts, in the PTSD world.... I have that going on... so was blindsided today. Thank you for taking the time to answer.

As a rule Rene', I monitor myself regularly... This one just slapped me down. I am already depressed. Chronic, so I have simply learned to live with it... but listening to music is a great idea... it will help me to get calm, then meditate, and not get upset with myself because I can't get quite... great suggestion. thanks for taking your time to answer.

Empath

I so need you guys right now. I have shared that I have PTSD. Have been in a depression for months now... my life is falling apart, but eventually that will get better, right now I feel defeated, but it;s only feelings, right?

I am on a PTSD forum that helps me so much, but it seems tho I have not shared that I am an Empath... others pick up something from me... and I get personal messages... for the most part.. I do ok with my caring and support, but received one today that has ripped me apart. I am shaking, feel a panic attack right under the surface, and desperately need to get centered...

I take breaks from this forum because I am already Impaired, so try not to overload myself, but I also go there for support for myself... this is different.. this is where we get lost in the pain and only other empaths understand.

Please give me some suggestions on how to get myself centered... anything to read that would help me to understand myself right now... My pain for this woman is larger than I am, more than I can process. I want to be present for her, but I also have to find myself a safe place to work from with her.. She does not know I am an empath, will not share that with her, as I don't share this with this group at all...

I have tried to be in nature which usually grounds me... but I am totally on overload... any suggestions or experiences would be hugely appreciated.... Thanks in advance... and thank you for providing a safe place for me to share and ask for help. Namaste

For anyone who is having a hard time staying on track today....


Empath

Sorry I am just now getting back to you. Time just has a way of having no meaning sometimes.. I am so overwhelmed and simply need some ME time... to relax, to think about my situation and find some direction. And thank you , more than you know, your words of support in regard to PTSD and being an empath.. some days it amazes me I am still here. I can tell you there are days that I feel 'twice blessed', and then the days of 'twice cursed'...No one can ever say I haven't lived my life... sometimes running away, sometimes running toward... but not letting it all make me not want to do life anymore...

So, again, your support and your words mean a lot to me.... so happy I have found this place...

Yes, and then there are times that is describing ME... I am in self imposed isolation right now, as I am a walking wound. I feel like if I don't get quite, get grounded, I am going to implode. I am still learning how and when to take ME time...As I am writing I am having such a heavy heart for this world.

But am also pruning the 'friendship' tree. I have PTSD and am on overload on many days simply because of this, much less what the people around me have been throwing out.

I do the above when I can. When it is not costing me physically, emotionally or spiritually .... thank you for sharing this..

Keeping a Job


Empath

I recently retired as a private caregiver for people with Alz./dementia. Working with them was a blessing of over 24 years.. But became very close to a lady that different health issues and she stole my heart. I felt nothing but bare bones love from her. And I love her very much. When she died, something in me broke. I have always despised working with the families of my clients... if there was ever a toxic group of people, makes me tired thinking about it.

I took one more job after she passed away and realized I just could not do this anymore. I was eligible for retirement, so took it.. I have to supplement my income... so a friend suggested a job,not in the caregiving field, I applied for it and got it... but during my waiting period, I became more and more anxious. Just so much of it felt WRONG... I did not want to work there...

Another job came up in the meantime, again, not with caregiving, which I won't do again, applied and got the job... I feel content now...I will get to work alone.. have very little interaction with people and am very happy about that....

I loved working with people with Alz. but could not abide the families anymore... so I am happy I followed my gut about the first job, and will be content with the one I am starting... pay attention to how you feel when you are interviewing.... if you are 'listening', you will know it's not the job for you.... I have to work, I would love to stay home and do my art... but, such is life... but am also happy to know I no longer have to put myself in the postion to be drained and stuffed with toxic stuff all day long..... I slept for the first three months of retirement !!! My outlet was nature.. finally felt myself being ME again... I am happy things turned out the way they did and am happy I knew what was not good for me...Thanks for letting me share.
