Thank you so much. ^.^ 💙💙💙
I recently read a post from someone stating empaths don’t exist. At first, I was put off by it, having considered myself a bit of an empath but the more I read it, I realized the truth of the statement. Empathetic people do take on what they perceive in others but the only reason they “feel” that way is because past abuse has conditioned them to. Our dysfunction in early childhood allows us to be very aware and observant but then we translate it as taking on those perceptions rather than just acknowledging we “get” that people’s facial expressions, demeanors, and behaviors have a tendency to imply their emotions. It was kind of a revelation to let go of some sort of mystical, metaphysical thinking. What do you think, Juansen?
What I’ve read recently is that there are “empaths” but some of them are not empaths but highly sensitive people instead. I’m not really sure if I’m an empath but I sure am sensitive. INFJ-A is my MBTI & sensitivity is part of the personality which I got from my psychiatric examination. But I haven’t seen a psychiatrist for months. I really don’t know if I’m an empath or an HSP or something else. Sometimes I just don’t want to know and perhaps some time in the last months of this year I will visit a mental health professional but as for now, I am okay. That’s all. 🙂 Thank you for reading, Susi and all the best in your day! 💙💙💙
Glad to hear you are ok! 😀 The best to you as well. ❤️
