As an empath, you know what it’s like to feel everything and everyone.
Empaths are like energy sponges — we pick up on the people and environment around us. Our compassion, sensitive hearts, and well-tuned antennae is a gift to us and those we love. But, our sensitive sides can also get us into trouble in relationships, especially if we lack awareness and the ability to manage our spidey-sense.
