So, I’ve been struggling really badly these past two days. I think this is the most I’ve ever struggled with being an empath.
It’s funny because as I mentioned in one of my last posts, this is the most I’ve ever noticed it before. It seems everywhere I turn, I pick up on someone’s feelings. Yesterday I found myself crying, my heart racing, excitement, fear, almost everything you can imagine. The joys of working with many people….
You know, it’s funny because I’ve been very ill these past two days and you’d think you’re less likely to pick up on other stuff but truly it’s the most I’ve ever picked up on it before. I picked up on my friends disappointment, my boyfriends excitement, my bosses happy tears, needless to say by the end of the day, I was exhausted emotionally and physically.
Although I do struggle badly with it, I do also find it extremely intriguing and entertaining, I meant what a gift to be able to feel what another feels! I mean for the most part, right? I’ve been finding that “Return to Sender” helps me a lot when I’m feeling like I just cant handle someone else’s emotion. I pick up on it, understand that it isn’t mine and I simply just say in my head “Return to Sender”.
I know it might seem silly, but it’s the fact that you’re acknowledging that it doesn’t belong to you and you’re sending it back to where it came from.
Always be thankful for being able to feel what you feel, it may be hard at times but it truly is a gift. I find that now that I can control it, it’s helped my relationships out greatly. I’m much less of a destructive person. I mean, sure I might say things inappropriately at the wrong times but that’s just a personality trait of mine. Haha!
If you’re finding that you’re struggling, simply stop and return back to where it came from.Also, remember to always find the good in everything, remember that it’s a gift, not a curse! Return to Sender.
You aren’t alone in your journey,
