The following passage is not mine. But as an empath I feel it’s important to understand what we handle and the emotions we have. Some days can be very exhausting.
′If you love an empath, love them honestly, and with all your heart.”
Empaths don’t take love lightly, they don’t pretend. When they really chose to open their hearts to you, then expect to be blown away.
Their love is intense, powerful, messy and sometimes difficult to deal with, but it is real.
Empaths don’t know how to love any other way.
An empath is someone who is very sensitive to people’s energy, moods, emotions, situations and their environment to the point where they can feel emotions as if they were theirs.
They also have some psychic ability: to know things without proof of it. A little mysterious and complex, their emotions are deep, but what lies below the surface is a world that is unique to them.
When you look into the eyes of an empath who opened their heart, you see vulnerability, honesty, pain, dreams, happiness, love.
With these thoughts, ideas, emotions, desires flown over, not everyone can be in a relationship with an empath. Nothing keeps an empath away more than if you try to change his/her sensitivity and empathic abilities.
Empaths are different from the majority of people we know.
They are sensitive, intuitive, easily overcome. They cry and see beauty everywhere. They feel the pain of others.
They need the person they love to be honest. They feel all the dishonesty in the world, and need shelter from it. Dishonesty does not work for an empath. Even if they are never meant to discover the deception, they will feel it. It’s torture for them to know that we’re doing something behind their back and not getting a direct response. Be honest and sincere the first time.
In cages they will cause damage. They are like birds, they must be able to fly freely to where their emotions guide them.
Cageing them is cutting their wings. They will lose the light that guides their way if you try to control them.
If this happens, they will stop opening up and they will hide the love they have to give deep enough in them.
Damage is not easily fixed, but it can be avoided by not trying to cage it.
The empath you love has probably been heartbroken in life and needs to be treated with sensitivity regarding the pace where things go between you two.
Don’t rush it.
He/she will come from himself/herself when he/she is ready. You need to let them spend time alone. Empaths need to recharge in a space that is unique to them. It’s different for everyone but they need time to be alone. It can be tiring to always feel the energy of the people around us, please don’t be embarrassed or bored when they need to recharge.
This doesn’t mean they don’t like you or they don’t like your company. This means they have to calm their minds and renew their energy. They will come back happier than before.
They often can’t express how they feel. The emotions of an empath are incredibly complex.
To the point that they struggle to express how they feel. Give them space. Be understanding.
Take seriously what they say.
Empaths are extremely creative people. There’s always an idea that pops up from their minds.
Take them seriously.
Believe in them, even though the idea may seem crazy to you. Empaths, probably more than anyone, have the ability to truly change the world. Listen to them when they open their hearts to you. Because somewhere between their enthusiasm, passion, and the words they use mix, something quite amazing is about to be created. They are intense.
Empaths tend to be pretty wise people. They don’t say it, but they feel everything so deeply that it comes naturally to them.
If they are exceptionally intense, give them some space. If they need you, stay close.
Their intuition is usually good.
Contrary to popular belief, they actually know what they’re talking about. They are empathetic and they feel everything.
So when they have a good feeling about something, trust them.
When they think someone is lying, trust them.
When they tell you about a dream because it touched their hearts, trust them.
When they tell you a situation is not right, believe them. They see the past, future and present all at once.
Trusting an empath in your life is showing life that you believe in it.
This will lead the way.
