Self care being an empath


Excerpt from Is Overactive Empathy Ruining Your Life?

Empathy is a gift most people have, to varying degrees.  But if you have the gift of empathy, you NEED to know how to turn it on and off.  Ideally, you want to be able to use it at will and then turn it off when necessary.  Some people with empathy naturally know how to do that.  Others don’t.

So, there are three steps to overcoming overactive empathy:

1. Centering yourself – as an energy management tool, to learn to turn off your empathy in the moment and to train yourself to be more centred in general.

2. Raising your awareness of empathy triggers – Understanding your external empathy triggers – that’s to say, understanding which situations and people trigger your empathy in any given moment.

3. Moving from unconscious empathy to conscious choice – understanding why you may not be turning your empathy off; overcoming limiting beliefs and unconscious choices around empathy and setting new intentions for the management of your energy.
