We all want to find someone who will truly love and respect us. The people who definitely fall into this category are the empaths. They’re even better than that.
Many people share the thought that empaths aren’t ordinary people. Well, if you know that empaths take in the emotions of the people they get in contact with, this shouldn’t look strange or surprising to you.
Empaths are highly sensitive people. They can sense and get easily affected by other people’s emotions. For example, if the person the empaths are talking to is feeling nervous or sad, they’ll feel nervous or sad too. All this can have negative consequences for them because they can often feel overwhelmed, exhausted and even depressed.
People can have difficulties understanding the character of an empath. Someone who is in love with an empath will have to put in a lot of effort in order to understand the way empaths behave and take in other people’s emotions.
Similarly, being in a relationship with an empath won’t be as easy as you may think. Yet, the relationship with them will be the most meaningful and deepest one you’ve had in your life. The way you feel when an empath loves you is something you could never imagine. They’ll know what you need and how you’re feeling in any situation. They’ll do anything to make you happy.
You should know that empaths love in a different way from other people.
So, here are the 9 unique ways in which empaths love differently:
1. Their love is intense.
I’ve already pointed out that empaths are extremely sensitive people. As a result, an empath is capable of feeling intense love. They’ll put all of their energy into showing you their deep and honest love. Due to the fact that they can sense how you feel, they’ll always know how to respond to your emotions appropriately. With their powerful and honest love, they’ll make you feel satisfied and better about yourself.
2. They will make you a better person.
Empaths like being surrounded by good people. They avoid people who are dishonest, malicious and often angry. They carry kindness within their hearts and want all people to do acts of kindness as well. So, don’t doubt that an empath will find a way to make you a better person. Their actions, presence, and energy will inspire you to be a better version of yourself.
3. They are very honest.
Sometimes telling or hearing the truth can be a difficult and bitter experience. Yet, empaths hate lies. They don’t like lying to you nor being lied to. The thing they appreciate the most in a relationship is honesty. For that reason, they’ll always choose to tell you the truth no matter how painful it is. So, you can be sure that an empath will never lie to, betray or hurt you.
4. They are completely selfless.
Selfishness is a personal characteristic they don’t know of. They’re generous and it’s very natural for them to do everything for the people they care about. An empath will always know what you want or need in advance. You’ll stand high on their priority list. Don’t doubt that you’ll feel grateful for being loved by an empath.
5. They guard their hearts.
Falling in love isn’t easy at all for empaths. Their hearts have been often broken by those who didn’t deserve their love and kindness. So, to save themselves from getting hurt again, empaths lock up their hearts.
Yet, don’t think that winning an empath’s broken heart is an impossible thing. Don’t back out but be patient and find the courage and a way to make them unlock their hearts. They deserve to receive the same amount of love that they give to others. Fighting for them will pay off eventually as they’ll make sure you ’re greatly loved by them and you don’t miss anything.
6. They have high levels of intuition.
It’s the empaths’ extremely developed intuition which enables them to sense and predict things which other people can’t. Many a time you won’t have to tell them how you’re feeling because they already know. Emotions are important to empaths and don’t doubt that you won’t succeed in hiding your feelings from them.
7. Their hearts can easily get broken.
Empaths are aware of the negativity that is surrounding them. They’re incessantly affected by the injustice and negative energy other people produce. They know what it’s like to have a broken heart. So, they’ll try hard to protect you from all the inequalities and pain in the world. Moreover, you can always feel safe with an empath. They’ll never lie to, be unfaithful to you or betray your trust in them in any other way.
8. They can’t get accustomed to pain.
Although empaths feel pain all the time, they still can’t get used to it. To overcome these feelings of pain they won’t shift the pain to you but they can decide to spend some time on their own.
However, just because they’ll choose to distance themselves from you, it doesn’t mean that you should give up on them. Make sure you offer them support and help and never let them struggle with their pain alone.
9. They need space.
The fact that empaths easily get affected by other people’s emotions can sometimes make them need more free space for themselves. They need space and time in order to put things together, listen to their own thoughts and control what they take in. When they’re surrounded by many people all the time, they can feel overwhelmed and tired.
Yet, this doesn’t mean that they want to cut you out of their lives. It simply means they need space and time to think things through. Moreover, they’re aware of the importance of space and they’ ll never be clingy or wear you out in a relationship.
