When a person is said to be an empath, he or she knows that the experiences of other people on a daily basis are sometimes going to be hard for them. Dating also belongs to these experiences.
For an empath, who feels the emotions of other people strongly, new relationships may be overwhelming – that can happen even when it is something he or she really wants.
Empaths do not only feel painful and heavy emotions like fear, anger, or depression strongly than other people do, but they may also be swept off their feet by some feelings of happiness, joy, and excitement.
When experienced all of a sudden and in an enormous way, excitement and happiness may be overwhelming, and everything that they experience is quite huge.
Here are four tips for empaths who find themselves in new relationships, which will help them keep themselves from driving themselves, and also their important partners crazy:
1. Spend enough time in solitude.
When empaths start new relationships, it is natural when they would like to spend most of their time with their loved one. But, failing to provide themselves with enough time being alone means failing to improve their self-care.
They should keep doing the things which they enjoy to do alone, and at the same time, they should make some time in order to be together with their new partner. This balance is going to help them avoid feeling a lot too soon or assist in continuing with the relationship in a healthy way.
2. Avoid their wish to go all in – at first.
So, when they feel there is an emotional bond, they usually desire to just right into that relationship. A lot of empaths report that they have relationships which are intense and short – nearly as they crammed several years of the relationship into one month.
Sometimes, intense things are difficult to sustain, so they should try to pace themselves and let their relationship to flow.
3. Acknowledge their fear.
Every time when two individuals are vulnerable to each other, which is actually the relationship’s hallmark, fear is definitely involved. Empaths don’t just feel their fears quite strongly but pick up the fears of their partners.
Although fear has its purpose, such as telling them to be careful, it may also keep them afraid and stuck to keep going. They should practice meditation on a regular basis and also be honest when it comes to their fears so that they can better understand when they are not founded.
4. Be open when it comes to their needs.
Empaths are always going to need a specific environment type in order to be and feel healthy. For instance, they are going to need some time spent in solitude, and they will want to avoid wasting time around loud noises and large crowds.
When they date a person that wants to party all the time, they may start having some conflicts about where to spend their time. However, this can be avoided if they explain their partner the meaning of being an empath, or the way of life they have to live to take better care of their own needs.
If their partner is the one worth having, she or he will be prepared to make a compromise and make sure their needs are entirely met.
