Have you been troubled lately with feelings that you’re an empath? Well, let me tell you that empaths aren’t victims or losers- they’re the most sensitive and supportive people.
If you’re an empath then you know that this kind of people can sense the hidden things and see the invisible ones. An authentic empath can understand other people’s emotions and opinions like nobody else. They’re always willing to give help and support to people who need them. They always put other people’s needs, problems, and wishes first.
If you’re an authentic empath, you must be many people’s favorite friend – the person they can always rely on.
So, if you happen to have most or all of the following 8 strange behaviors, there’s no doubt you’re an authentic empath.
Here they are:
1. You are extremely sensitive.
This is the most obvious trait of an authentic empath. What you can’t endure is when you see other people suffering. The thing is that you not only understand other people’s suffering, but you feel the same pain with your whole body. For example, if you see violent scenes on TV, you immediately change the channel. If you see a couple quarreling or a hurt animal that you can’t help, you distance yourself immediately from them.
2. You easily take on the energy of other people around you.
It’s very easy for you to sense and take on other people’s energy. As soon as you do this, you start vibrating in the same manner as them. For example, if someone’s happy, you’ll feel your heart jumping with the same amount of joy. If someone’s angry, you’ll feel your body getting filled with fierce feelings of anger. You can also feel other people’s insecurities and fears. Yet, you should know that you can change this and make your life easier for you. As soon as you understand that such behavior isn’t normal and it damages your health, you’ll learn how to control your reactions to other people’s emotions.
3. You are highly intuitive.
Your high intuition levels make you experience the world from a different perspective than other people. You’re able to sense things others can’t. It is as if you have magical powers to read someone’s mind and know what they’ll do next. You can also find out people’s real intentions, especially the bad ones, even when they don’t pronounce or trying to hide them. There is nothing that others can hide and your clear and accurate intuition won’t be able to detect.
4. Other people sap your energy.
The fact that you take on other people’s emotions and vibrate to their energy, no matter if it’s positive or negative, makes others drain your energy. The thing is that you connect with others on a subconscious level. The longer this lasts, the more you’ll feel angry, annoyed, and depressed. If you don’t control the way you react to other people’s emotions, you’ll get highly exhausted and unable to function properly. It’s essential for you to start thinking more about your own mental and physical well-being than about that of others. Make yourself your top priority.
5. Broken people get easily attracted to you.
The nature of your character and emotions doesn’t attract people who are confident, brave, and content with their lives. You attract those who are weak, vulnerable and need help. Whenever a person, who you know, feels depressed or needs to be comforted will come to you right away. Don’t be surprised if someone you don’t know taps you on your shoulder and asks for your help. Helping other people is always a good quality, but trying to help anyone who asks for it, will drain your energy and weaken your mental health.
6. You easily detect lies.
When a person is lying to you, you immediately know that. You detect their lies because you can feel their energy, their low vibration and you can sense their true intentions. After some time, you become so experienced that when you see someone, you know right away if you can trust them or not. In this way, you prevent them from negatively influencing and taking advantage of you.
7. You are affected by crowds.
Who doesn’t want to be surrounded by a bunch of people, right? Well, authentic empaths certainly don’t. Feeling other people’s both positive and negative energy and emotions is your strongest ability, so imagine what will happen to you when you’ll find yourself in the company of ten, fifty, hundred or even more people? So, that’s the reason why you avoid crowdy city places, parties, and other social gatherings which involve big crowds. In cases where you won’t be able to do so, try to protect yourself in some ways or at least ignore people who “beam” with negativity.
8. You neglect or forget about your own problems.
When a person needs your help, you’re always there for them to help. Yet, when it comes to your own problems, insecurities, and fears, you never have time to deal with them. You suppress your emotions and turn a blind eye to your problems, no matter how grave they are. Bear in mind, that this isn’t a solution and it only weighs you down. Over time, your life will become very stressful and almost unbearable. So, do make sure you find time to deal with your problems first and then with those of other people.
