In this day and age, being an empath is often viewed as a mistake. People think you’re too soft and weak. but should empathy be treated as a weakness? Here are just a few benefits of being highly in tune with your emotions.
1 YOUR INSTINCT IS PRECISE.
You always seem to know what best for you. This doesn’t imply that you’re a mind reader – you can only take action in your own life. If you’re unhappy in a relationship, you can sense when it’s time for you to move on. You can often tell very easily if someone is a good fit or not. The challenge comes in listening to your intuition.
2 YOU’RE TREMENDOUSLY SELF-AWARE.
You’re plugged into your emotions and feelings in ways that not everyone is. You’re willing to take a look at what’s going on inside of yourself. This permits you to know about your triggers just as your blemishes, empowering you to develop vastly.
3 YOU’RE INCONCEIVABLY SYMPATHETIC.
You often find yourself taking on other people’s emotions. You can get a deep sense of what they’re feeling and naturally, it helps you to have more understanding about what they’re going through. Like when someone is experiencing grief, you can feel it in your bones and have an idea of how much the other person is hurting.
4 YOU’RE GREAT AT PRACTICING SELF-CARE.
You’re good at it because you’ve had to learn the hard way. You’ve burnt out and then realized that you need to take proper care of yourself. You know that you’re no good to the world or yourself unless you’ve had time to recharge.
5 YOU HAVE OUTSTANDING ATTENTIVENESS.
You inherently live in the moment much of the time because your senses are being stimulated strongly. You tend to be a very good listener and good at remembering details of what goes on because you’re so tuned in.
6 YOU NOTICE THINGS OTHERS MIGHT MISS.
You pay close attention to everything and you’re constantly on alert. As a result, you often sense dishonest people. You can’t help but be hyper-aware, so you’re constantly taking in provocations.
7 YOU PROCESS THINGS DEEPLY.
You find meaning in everything. You’re constantly trying to learn lessons from whatever you deal with. In that way, you’re able to benefit from mistakes or failures. Your emotions are often very intense in response to other’s actions and opinions.
8 YOU’RE VERY CONSIDERATE.
You know the impact people have on one another and how much damage someone can do to another person if they aren’t careful. As a result, you try to be gentle in your daily life. You may not be not perfect at it, but you’re more intentional than your average person.
9 YOU CAN BE VERY CREATIVE.
You use creativity to express yourself and let go of all that you’re holding inside. Your art tends to be intense, just like you. You absorb lots of information around you, so you have a ton of things to work within your creations.
10 THERE ARE OTHER EMPATHS THAT GET YOU.
You’re a special breed. When you meet each other, you have tons to talk about because it’s amazing to meet someone else who “gets it.” You can connect on a deep level pretty much immediately because you skip right over the small talk. You jump into talking about your feelings and your deepest fears.
