An empath is a person who can form special connections and bonds with the people around them. The empath can always feel when someone needs them because of their ability to understand and feel the feelings of others as their own.
But, oftentimes, the empath is labeled as being “too sensitive” (like being sensitive is a bad thing). The reality is, you should consider yourself lucky if you have an empath in your life, and here’s why.
Below are 10 things that are true for every empath even though they do everything to conceal them from everyone.
1. ABILITY TO ABSORB EMOTIONS
The empath feels happy when others are happy and feels sad when others are sad. They are extremely connected to the emotions of others that they can literally feel the emotions of other people as their own.
2. CONNECTION TO NATURE
If someone spends a lot of time in nature – that person is most probably an empath. Empaths love the serene feeling of happiness and peacefulness that can’t be found in a crowded town. Anytime empaths want to find their balance and recharge, they go in nature.
3. GIVING TOO MUCH
Empaths spend too much time and energy trying to please other people. This leaves the empath emotionally drained and filled with negative emotions. Empaths’ genuine need to help others can be dangerous to their own well-being. They need to remember to take a good care of their needs first.
4. GETTING STRESSED OUT
Because of the empaths’ tendency to help and give all they have to please others, they often get overwhelmed and stressed out.
5. ABILITY TO LOVE DEEPLY
Every emotion of the empath is heightened. This goes to love as well. When an empath loves, they love deeply and wholeheartedly. They will do everything for the person they love. If an empath falls in love with you, get ready to experience real love and care.
Even though empaths try to conceal their sensitive nature, they are one of the most easily hurt people out there due to the depth of their feelings. They try to hide how sensitive they are because they want to look strong to those who need them.
Because empaths are constantly feeling the emotions of those around them, they might try to avoid contact occasionally, to get a break from everything and recharge. They enjoy their alone time because sometimes being in a crowded room is too much for their overly sensitive nature.
8. ABILITY TO DETECT LIES
Empaths are natural lie-detectors. They have a keen sense of seeing through people. The can immediately sense someone’s true nature and they can spot a liar in a heartbeat. Even if they don’t tell you, be sure that they know when you are lying.
9. HEIGHTENED INTUITION
Empaths are naturally very connected to their emotions. Their gut feeling is almost always right, and they choose to follow it every time they are in doubts or need to make an important decision. It is as if they are connected to the energy of the universe and the universe is speaking through their intuition.
10. EASY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF
Empaths are easy preys to manipulative people because of the empath’s genuine nature to help everyone. Manipulators can easily spot an empath and use its empathic ability to get what they want. Empaths have to be careful of the people with whom they surround themselves.
