The really crappy thing about being an empath is that when people are feeling stuff, you are too. The thing about us though is that we are stronger than most - and we stay determined to be good positive people.
Yes we're taking strain right now, but others are feeling it worse than we are because they have ZERO coping skills at all.
Helping is not about the fact that you are strong, it's about the fact that we are stronger and better off than most - even if it does feel like we are in personal hell.
We know we'll make it... most of the others we're shifting for don't know that. They don't even know where to begin looking for relief.
Reach Out and Help Someone
I know it feels like it's all you can do to stay upright at moments right now, but I promise you you're stronger than most.
So reach out and help somebody today.
The moment you help someone one-on-one, the empath load on you will decrease. You will feel better for doing it - so just reach.
Love you guys and this too shall pass :)
