Empathy is something this world needs in large quantities, non-stop! I believe it’s the key to our society’s salvation. I also believe we chose empathy long before we came to Earth in a human form. Unfortunately, we have found a form to squeeze empaths out to the fringes of our society, forcing them to feel like complete weirdos, outcasts and rejects.
However, I have noticed that with the rise of the frequency levels and our consciousness, more and more people started accepting their gifts, and what is more, they started expressing their feelings and talking more openly about the things they go through on daily basis.
These people are by far the bravest if you ask me. They, personally, taught me that we all are different and that we all are empaths to a certain level and that the level of empathy each of us experiences is directly related to the shift in consciousness.
As we begin to allow the world to transform into a place that feels better for most of us, how we perceive this world changes; we look at ourselves through the lenses of empathy, and we throw away the narrowed perspective of selfishness.
Here we give you three of the myths about empathy that most sensitive people struggle with:
1. Empathy and dependence go together.
False! Empaths seek connection not a codependent relationship, as they know the power of bonding.
From the outside, some empaths may seem needy, but what they are looking for is a real connection, something authentic that can keep them grounded and in balance.
2. Empathy can have the opposite effect and turn into isolation and coldness.
Mentally – not physically – young empaths are sometimes not able to cope with the power of their feelings and sensations. This can overwhelm them and make them go rogue.
This is half true. Empathy represents an internal space that should be contained and made conscious. Many empaths had rough starts, but as they say, time is cure for everything, so they eventually find a way to work things out.
3. Empaths are unstable and unreliable.
Even if inconsistency is a trait of highly sensitive people, it’s better to consider it a gift that can be used for your own benefit.
Unpredictable people are creative and curious, they are the ones who more the world forward.
Empathy is about standing in someone else’s shoes, feeling with his or her heart, seeing with his or her eyes. Not only is empathy hard to outsource and automate, but it makes the world a better place.
