They get uncomfortable because they know that we know. They know that no matter what they say, we are on target almost 100% of the time. Our feelings, our awareness, our gift enables that. Whether we feel their pain, joy, anger or whatever it is easy for us to pick up on when they are lying or trying to trick us into thinking they are being kind when, in fact, they are doing the Emotional Vampire thing and trying to wear us down by convincing us, or trying to that we are just thinking this all in our heads. Then the other Emotional vampires suck us dry with their negativity, draining us of needed energy to reboot ourselves. Because life as an Empath/ Discerner can be draining on the emotions. I have to try and dodge the ones who want to make me feel like I am crazy, or it is all in my head or I need to “talk” to someone. No, actually, I need none of that. But, you can never convince them because they will always turn the tables on you and make it out like they are great and you are “disturbed”. So, one of the lessons I am learning is to ignore it. Because I know and I am usually right when the truth comes out. Unite us fellow Empaths and Discerners! 🙂
So very many times we are told it is all in our heads, we are causing issues over nothing, we need to do this or that, we are thinking things that are simply not true and it can drive you almost nuts. So, on the few times when someone comes and tells you something you knew all along, it is like a sigh of relief. To know, “Hey, I wasn’t just “thinking ” things in my head or wow, it was true. So then it goes from relief to a bit of anger for being made to feel as though you are bonkers. lol. There are sharks among us but at least we can see them so that is a plus! But, anyway, just wanted to share that it is okay to go with your feelings, your discernment because there is a 98% chance you ARE right. Like honey when it is proven to be true.
It is a beautiful road but often lonely and sometimes very discouraging. I know, for me, it is filled with a lot of work to keep my way of life from draining me mentally. Empaths/ discerners feel things others do not, we can feel pain and hurt from others or at least I can. I can “read” when people are being dishonest and then get backlash when I address it by being told so many times “it is all in my head”, maybe I should get counseling,” “I need to stop because I am the problem” and it goes on and on. I have learned and I am still learning how to live it and yet avoid emotional vampires who try and suck the energy and emotion from me. It is hard to know when others stab you verbally and yet smile to your face. You know it and sadly so do they. But they choose to make me the one who is the problem but I am who I am and I know what I know. I have to try hard to keep it from making me bitter or just a social outcast because it is painful to be honest. But. I think that with all that is going on right now, social distancing is giving me a chance to emotionally recharge and for me that is good. Have a wonderful day/evening everyone! 🙂
This is hard. Trying to not overthink, trying to avoid the toxic feelings and the pushing of others to come when you cannot. It is hard to hear the aggression of those angry because you feel it so strong. Drained mentally while trying to maintain a healthy mental strength. Looking to seek out those who want to be giving and caring in these times. I am struggling but still doing my best to keep my own mental health from breaking while trying to help others who are in panic. With anxiety myself that can be hard. But I am trying. Yoga, prayer, meditation and just trying to do the best I can. Hugs to my fellow writers and bloggers.
It is hard enough being an Empath/ discerner who lives a different life from others so your senses are a lot keener. But especially now, along with having anxiety, I am going to have to let go toxic people and emotional vampires. I cannot deal with the constant comments that it is always me causing issues and I am just causing problems and I am just this and that while I am talked about and toxic people make me their dart board. Right now I am trying to focus my mind on anything positive and happy I can. Whether it be a flower that isn’t even supposed to be blooming yet, the normal of the Psych neighborhood dog or just smiles. Beautiful radiant smiles. But I have been pushed around and still tried to make peace and one person gets another and then another gets mad. I am not a stomping ground so sadly, when we should all be united, I am finding myself having to even distance from afar which I was already trying to do physically. But I have to kick in my survival instincts. Sorry so bum but I had to get it out. Hugs to all of you!
We are an odd lot to many, those of us who have these abilities. But they are God given, mind powered abilities and we embrace them. They can be hard and they can be frustrating. It can be a battle to see inside someone and have to know that things are so much more real to us and they have trouble handling or even believing that although they must know it is true. Because how else would we know?
Either way, I used to hate it so much because in a world filled with fakeness, it is can be so hard. But I have also and I am still learning to use it to find the love in people and the way to reach that love and return it. I stay mostly away now from emotional vampires who suck my very essence with their ways of trying to break me down with the constants. Those who have these abilities know what that means. So, all in all, learning to navigate the good, the bad, and the beautiful ugly of an Empath, Introvert, Discerner. Happy day/evening to all of my fellow writers and bloggers!
How many times have I said, “You know, I am just so done with this but I ended going back to the same drama or abuse of trying to wear my down (People, not a man) And I seem to always end in an endless cycle. I have done that over and over and over. But the last few days, after so much arguing, and trying to avoid their passive/aggressive behavior or trying to belittle me or even just flat out verbally or mentally slap me in the face I am actually finally there.
I am not mad, hurt or lonely. I am just done with the way I have been treated and I am no longer going to deal with it. I will hopefully lesson my anxiety. I will hopefully be able to NOT let it affect me and that will bring more calm and a sense of peace. I hope anyone who is like me will, if you have not already, get to the point of actually being DONE.
