Thanks for pointing this out, @hop-daddy. I especially loved the first link. I wish everyone I know would read that. I've done chakra cleansing for ages with no results. Also daily cleansing and shrinking of the solar plexus chakra and shuttering it. No results. I think it will be this way as long as I live in a crowded city.
The book she wrote specifically for empathic INFJs looks good. I have every single health issue she listed except migraines and colds, and I used to have those when I was younger.
My number one tip is set boundaries and stick to them. Selfish, narcissistic and psychopathic people will keep on violating your boundaries and pushing you, and you will be forced to confront them which is SO hard for a decent person to do, but once you have gotten some relief by doing so, you will never go back. You are not responsible for anyone else's life choices, so don't let hem make you feel that you are, or sickness is inevitable and I am so sick I am terminal and cannot drive, barely sleep, and can only walk two blocks now, and slowly. history is repeating itself, and people are literally trying to drain me to death, and this is important for all you newbies, they do NOT care and feel NO remorse. I watched my unaware empath mother become a depressed hermit and die at only age 60 from the overwhelm and disappointment caused by selfish, nervy people. Not everyone is decent like empaths and not everyone who claims to be one really is an empath. The problem I think is the empath's push-pull relationship with people, especially for INFJs, of which I am one. You can feel compelled to be involved with people and help them, but despise what you can read in them at the same time. I hope lots of people read these links and put themselves first always. Then choose carefully whom you help. Imo, most people these days are so desperate for a connection with something other than their phones that they are bottomless pits of need. You will be drained dry, but they will never be filled up. I think some of us, and I am guilty, confuse being a friend with being a therapist, and even a therapist gets to be off work and have down time. If someone needs one, you are not doing them any favors by substituting for what they really may need...think about it. A real friend does not expect free therapy from you. Ok, end of rant. Thanks again for posting this.
