Life Hack for Empaths

As an empath, this is one principle that I wish I had learned earlier: 

Experiencing other people’s pain or suffering can be disheartening, and if you’re highly sensitive you’re constantly coming into contact with it. 

It can be very disempowering as it feels like you can experience other people’s pain without any control over it or ways to fix it. 

What I have learned through my own journey is that you are never actually feeling the other person. We aren’t truly ever able to experience what other people are feeling. 

This understanding restores power to you. You have the ability to process the feelings inside your own body, using a variety of self-regulation techniques. 

The world is still just as imperfect, but you can learn to process it in a way that serves you better.
