Being a highly empathy person brings you both rewards and drawbacks. It’s hard to tell if it good or not for you. Sometimes you might feel sad with the situation which is not actually worth it and vice versa, you feel extremely happy for those reasons that are not really high. Below are some of the traits that may reveal whether you are an empath or not.
1. You are easy to absorb others’ emotions regardless the positive or negative ones.
One of the easiest ways to know whether you are a highly empathy person or not is knowing whether you are easy to realize others emotions and absorb them or not. For example, when one person who is quite and looking unhappy, walking in the room, you are right away knowing that she is feeling uncomfortable and may be anxiety deep inside. Then you yourself feel the butterflies in your stomach. It’s hard to say why you have that feeling when you don’t even know her yet. That said others’ feeling are very contagious to you, or in other words, you are so easy to resonate with them.
2. You are highly or super sensitive people.
Some people told that they are highly sensitive because they are extremely easy being driven to cry. Their faces scarlet with shame in every situation though they don’t want to. To some extent, they are fragile, not highly sensitive. Because it takes more than that to become a person who is super sensitive.
A highly sensitive person is a naturally giving. He or she are easy to give out and share their thoughts, their feelings regardless the negative or positive ones. They are also willing to share what they have. Helping others turns out to be their joy and they need them for the feeling of living well. Since seeing other be said leads them to feeling unhappy inside. In most of the cases, many of them need to toughen up, otherwise, their lives easily get miserable and exhausted.
3. You might be an introvert person.
Are you mistaking being a highly empathy with being an introvert? There is a high chance that you are. By means of this, you might be an introvert and you need some time to console yourself when life gets hard. An introvert is usually being overwhelmed in crowds. They are not comfortable in a big group. They prefer a small group with some of their close friends. Bing surrounded by strangers can put introverts to shame and turn their faces to red because of even the smallest reason.
4. You don’t have many friends.
One thing can be sure is that highly empathy people don’t have many friends. This might sound strange because they are easy to empathy with others’ feeling, they should have many friends. However, super empathy people usually find it hard to make new friends because they sometimes are overwhelmed by other’s feelings and they don’t want to. Their friends, most of the time, are old and long-time guys since they are easy to sympathize and natural givers.
Being an empath, you have a huge heart but sometimes you gave too much that leads you to exhausting your energy. You need to toughen up for an easier life. Stop treating situations in the other-center way and thinking for yourself first and don’t be so busy helping others with their feelings should be good ideas for you.
