How do you know that you are energy sensitive and empathic?
You relate with three or more of the points listed below:
Get overwhelmed easily
Your emotions change based on who you hang out with
Feelings get hurt easily
Your thoughts change (motivation vs depression) based on who you hang out with
Being out in fresh air or nature feels good
Being alone helps recharge your energy
You can't watch news
You feel overwhelmed or anxious in crowded places (this is different from social anxiety)
You feel like you are a sponge to other people's emotions
You are sensitive to strong fragrances, especially artificial scent
You have a hard time with confrontation
You get burnt out easily
you are sensitive to food and the way food is cooked
You feel never enough in how much you do for other people
You are an excellent giver and a poor receiver. eg monetary donations, physically caring for needy (friends, family, strangers), donating time to volunteer work, putting yourself last on the 'need for care' list.
At age 24, when I first came across the term empath, I reacted with denial. Yeah! Denial.
" Who am I to have this special gift? I don't think I am an empath or energy sensitive. I am not good enough to have this gift. I am not doing anything special by caring for people"
This overtime turned into:
"It's difficult being an empath. This is a burden and a curse, not a gift! Why would anyone want to be an empath? It sucks to be always feeling everything and not be able to intervene. I feel so drained after hanging out with certain people. This is all too much! It's hurting my body, emotions and mind."
The thing is, as an energy sensitive person, your health is greatly impacted by a lack of self-care, healthy boundaries, receiving support and self-understanding. You struggle with insomnia, high stress, anxiety, depression, unresolved childhood traumas, chronic fatigue, digestive illness, imbalanced hormones and other chronic illness.

As an empath, you have a HARD TIME ASKING FOR HELP. You are so used to taking care of everyone, and not wanting to burden others to take care of you. AM I RIGHT?
