Empath

So, two days after I said I would look into it, I actually did! No, seriously, I usually forget about these things but it piques  my interest. Color me surprised at the accuracy of this. 

4) INTP-A!

The Empath Experience- An Empath Physician's View


Empath

@loconnoro  OMG I know, it seems like everywhere you turn, there's a "narc" out to get you. Which I find a little like...eh...doubtful. And like the crystals thing, I'm just confused about the whole process of it all. Like cleaning them of the energy and burying them and like so many steps. Then there's the chakras and the whole transcending this plane of existence and the dreams and people seeing dead people, it's just so much. A lot of things definitely seem to be getting roped in along with the empathetic traits. I definitely want to like talk about this, probably on a thread dedicated to this because we've definitely veered off subject here, we're like totally spamming this thread.

@cheshire-cat you're being so cool about the fact that this has nothing to do with the original subject. Your advice is literally the only thing that I've found has worked, isolation for the win. I feel like my resistance fluctuates a lot. I will have good days and days like today that I felt like people were taking small hammers to my head and I need to not be around them anymore 

Irrelevant, but I use the word "like" a lot. I'm 21. I'm in college. I'm a millennial. Don't be mad at me

The Empath Experience- An Empath Physician's View


Empath

Okay guys, it's all cool she apprently "synthesizes the pearls of traditional medicine with cutting edge knowledge of intuition, energy, and spirituality"! Joking, of course. Can we like take a minute here, just comment on that sentence, whatever that means even?! I mean, what is cutting edge knowlegde of intuition? Is there not cutting edge knowledge of it? How do you get cutting edge knowledge of it? That's just a confusing sentence. 

Both of my parents are in the field of psychology and let me tell you now, there's a huge stigma against communities like these and there's very little peer reviewed research on it. I don't think that's fair, but it is the way it is. It can do a lot of harm to introduce very vulnarable individuals with impaired critical thinking process to this or really any new ideology. The work that a therapist does is the same whether they believe that Empaths exist or not. If a therapist understands that the individual in front of them is more attuned to other people's feelings which could be explained in them reading body language, tone, mannerisms of others, more readily, they treat them accordingly. The brain is an amazing tool and you can pick up so many things unconsiously about someone, doctors know this, it's not exactly a secret. The process is the same. The whole thing is a little shady. The way she seems to be using her supposed gifts together with her profession it seems to vibe wrong with me. A therapist should always be seperated emotionally from the client. So, that would literally make you a bad one. It's confusing how she seems to be so highly spoken of everywhere when it would be very unprofessional of you to "get down with the feels" when it comes to your clients.

I wish we talked about this more in the forum. Just the amount of people that seem to pray on vulnarable people, masquerading as Empaths or Empath-friendly is astounding. I think we should be critical of some things and not be afraid to doubt things in our own community (not the forum but the community overall). Of course, in a respectful and considerate manner, I'm not saying that we should accuse others of commiting fraud or being crazy. Then there wouldn't be such need to search for someone with a degree to validate our identity as Empaths and hanging onto them as gospel. Of course this is just my opinion, it's completely subjective, I'm not saying that I'm right, just what I believe.

The whole thing is shaky for more reasons other than that she literally copied and pasted Elise's book down to the title. I mean. The title. Even if you just did the same reseach and got to the same conclusions (which is already far-reached as a claim), you didn't google your title? You didn't notice there's an eerily similar book with the same title in your research?

Empath

1) Sugar causes me intense headaches. Not only that but it makes me super sluggish too and I can't concentrate on anything.
2) I'm vegetarian, have been for the past 3 years. If I can survive without killing any living being, I do it. That's just it. My energy is still sh*t, like it was before, because I'm bad at creating a sensible schedule and sticking to it.
3) Since I'm overweight, plainly bad at being a very basic responsible adult in general, and I still haven't figured out how to be a balanced sensible empath, I don't think I relate to anyone with powers that may resemble my own senses. I guess I could be a bigger Jessica Jones minus the alcoholism. I think she has people dumping their problems on her all the time too. She has a huge heart and tries to help people even though it won't end well for her. Hopefully someone has seen the Netflix show here
4) No idea what that is, will google though. Still pretty new in this. I bet it's like something obvious that I've read before and my brain just won't cooperate for some reason.

Also, I totally read other people's comments. Sorry. Mostly because I wanted to see what the last question was about. It seems that everybody knows about it. I resisted googling cool superheroes too because my senses have their own days and times that they decide to remind they're there so, I sure am not a cool empath person lol. Also, why does nobody use "lol" here

Social gatherings


Empath

Alright, first of all "women can be caddy"? Come on. Are we back in the dark ages? 

Anyway, that's not the point, I know. Social gatherings are the worst thing ever to me too, the bigger the gathering, the better, because feelings get blended together and you don't get like one negative feeling constantly grazing on your senses. Anyway, the thing is, the more you hang out with people, the more attuned you get to their feelings. I think you're just picking up more from them because your senses have honed in. That happens to me when someone invokes a stronger feeling, I get attuned to them because I focus on them. Yeah, empaths can dislike people too as much as they can like them, we sure aren't all Mother Teresa. That's okay, sometimes people can be a-holes. 

What I do, is get in my head a little more. Think about you, the things you like about yourself and be comfortable in your own skin. In short, try to manage indifference towards them and you're not going to pick up much. I try to hone in somebody else, which I find likable or at least I'm not picking up immediate darkness. It's better to focus your energy on something else if you can't avoid them
