The Dark Side of Empathy No One Talks about – Learning Mind


Sorry, neither of my parents have empathy towards people.
I seem to have gotten what they never had…
over sensitivity to people’s emotions and my own emotions…
So not always passed down even though I admit I was born with it.
For me, it was truly discovered within me through my own challenges
and misfortunes throughout life, it was probably hidden away deep
within for a long time but eventually, somehow,
it flourished after disowning parts of myself that replicated my parents.

So I’d say my environmental changes had much to do with it as much as chance.
But definitely not hereditary and not taught upon me.

“Empaths are regarded as being sympathetic, caring, sensitive to the feelings of others. So it may surprise you that there is a dark side to being an empath.”

Emotional Empaths…


Wow.. just learned that physical empaths exists.

I don’t have that, but this does mention emotional empaths, which I do classify myself as, and it’s spot on. (1) 7/7, (2) 6/6 , (3) 6/6

_____________
(1) Have I been labelled as too emotional or overly sensitive?

– If a friend is distraught, do I start feeling it too?
– Are my feelings easily hurt?
– Am I emotionally drained by crowds, require time alone to revive?
– Do my nerves get frayed by noise, smells, or excessive talk?
– Do I prefer taking my own car places so that I can leave when I please?
– Do I overeat to cope with emotional stress?
– Am I afraid of becoming engulfed by intimate relationships?

If you answer “yes” to 1-3 of these questions, you’re at least part empath. Responding “yes” to more than 3 indicates that you’ve found your emotional type, which is “the Emotional Empath.” Recognising that you’re an empath is the first step in taking charge of your emotions instead of constantly being overwhelmed by them.

(2) The Empath’s Positive Side (Adapted from Emotional Freedom by Judith Orloff, M.D.)

– You’ve got a big heart, are gifted in helping others.
– Your sensitivity makes you passionate and exquisitely sensual.
– You’re intuitive about people’s thoughts and feelings.
– You’re emotionally responsive, can relate to another’s feelings.
– You’re in touch with your body and emotions.
– You have a palpable sense of spirituality.

(3) The Empath’s Challenging Side

– You’re an emotional sponge, absorbing people’s negativity.
– You’re so sensitive to emotions, you feel like a wire without insulation.
– You’re prone to anxiety, depression, fatigue.
– You may feel hemmed in living in the same space with other people.
– You may have chronic, debilitating physical symptoms.
– You have difficulty setting boundaries with draining people, get run over by them.

Criminal Minds S12E16

The paths we take…


I would never regret or be disappointed
by the choices I’ve made and the roads I’ve taken,
because each and every road we’ve chosen differently
led to something that is equally worthy and beautiful.
For those things, I wouldn’t trade them in for the world.
Even the simplest choices to some
can be like finding a diamond
in the gutter for others.

Never under-estimate the power of simplicity.  <3

Why is it that a woman is only considered normal when they are attached to a man…
Why can’t I or anyone else be a woman that isn’t fragile enough
to need to be in relationships or need to be involved?
Being in my 30s doesn’t change my views like most women out there.
I might be a sappy romantic and I would love to have a kid or two one day,
but hell would I ever become some age old cliche.
I don’t need to be married and have kids,
I also don’t need a side piece if I don’t see any worth my time.
It’s not me that has a problem if this reality needs to be questioned.
End of story.

I’ve never been good at expressing my thoughts and feelings
through communication and interactions,
so writing became my outlet.
However, my writing is much more complex than my speech,
often with ulterior meanings and hidden clues,
very rarely are they ever literal.
Even poetic at times…
Only those who know the stories behind the curtains
would understand their meanings. :p

…That, is also the complete opposite of how I speak in person.

Interesting episode, gave me a new perspective…

This is why I love understanding how the mind works.

Not every void is the same, but most voids have the same desire…

The desire to be filled.

Hmm..

“No matter how much you don’t think you belong, there will always a place that’s just right for you… All you have to do is let it. Don’t let the fear of being alone or being different stop you.” – Me.
