Why Do Empaths Struggle With Self-Care, Self-Love And Setting Healthy Boundaries
So many empaths get so easily overwhelmed, exhausted and burnt out
So many empaths tend to over give and attract life’s over takers
So many empaths struggle to say NO, create healthy boundaries
Like most people, empaths lack self-love but empaths also have huge issues around self-care and creating healthy boundaries. They often have such strong tendencies towards over giving, putting other’s needs first that they more easily suffer exhaustion, stress and burn out. Especially when many have many strong traits of martyrdom or victimhood.
Why? Because the empath is often so energetically aware and immersed in the energy, pain and drama of the things and people around them. They find it difficult to differentiate their own needs, their own energy field from the energy field and emotions of others.
Common Empathic Traits
Empaths are aware of others emotions in-fact they often absorb others emotions
Empaths are need lots of time out, empaths are so sensitive to the energy and people around them they need lots of time out.
Empaths are usually highly sensitive so are more sensitive to energy; their surroundings, people, the world, animals
Empaths are highly intuitive and often highly psychic with strong gut instincts. These important skills help keep the empath and highly sensitive empath healthy and happy. The empathic child will often bring these gifts through very clearly. But if those around don’t understand and support the child’s gifts, the child will often feel confused, ashamed and fearful which often leaves to an emotional and or energtic shut-down.
Empaths are so often misunderstood like sensitives classed as too weak , too sensitive or too weird because of their awareness of often the un-known, the un-seen
Empaths can easily lose their identity in relationships so can often avoid close or intimate relationship to protect themselves. They can find it extremely challenging to deal with controlling relationships, parents, work colleagues.
Many empaths are introverted but even those that have more extroverted tendencies it is often important for them to spend time alone or resting.
Many empaths end up with burn-out or chronic health challenges due to imbalance of their gifts, lack of boundaries, over attachment to being the carer, supporter, helper, healer, nurturer. Many wounded healers are empaths.
Many empaths don’t just feel and absorb people’s emotional pain but physical pain.
