What being an Empath means to me.

Lately, I have been feeling like my sensitive nature is getting in the way of  what I want for my life. I know that being empathic is a part (a large part) of who I am. I have grown strong enough to not feel controlled by the emotions of those I am not close to. It’s just that once I am connected to a person on a deeper level than just superficial, I then feel compelled to help them, to hear them out, to make them happy. It’s very exhausting. Right now, I am at the point where I don’t want to make others happy. I’ve been striving to make my life better in ways that make me happy, so that I can continue to care for others(my family). I want to live a simple and peaceful life. I want to share genuine happiness with my children. I hope to instill in my children the ability to be empathic, but the knowledge and strength to pull away, to let go and to take care of self. I’m gonna keep trying for me also. I love us all. Peace within~
