BEING AROUND INAUTHENTIC PEOPLE
IS CLOSE TO EXCRUCIATING, IF YOU’RE AN EMPATH.
By definition, empaths are
emotionally sensitive people who absorb the emotions and feelings of others-
even the ones other people don’t know they’re emitting. Sounds like an
exhausting job, right? Well, imagine being able to soak up all of those feelings,
and being around a fake person. It’s perplexing, frustrating, and yes,
excruciating, for an empath to be around an inauthentic person.
Have you ever spent time with
someone who seemed quite pleasant and kind on the surface, but when you were
physically near them you felt…gross? You could barely form a sentence; you
immediately went from ‘okay’ to ‘blah’. In a manner of speaking, this is
because your empathetic antenna is picking up on something that just isn’t
right. You know that what you are seeing and what is really going on doesn’t
match- and that usually means someone is hiding something.
Highly sensitive people need honest, deep, meaningful
relationships with others. If you’re not genuine, they’re not up for the
HERE’S WHY EMPATHS ACT STRANGE
AROUND INAUTHENTIC PEOPLE:
Empaths are gifted at reading body language and
energy. They do not put up with lies or deception. And yes, even empaths
have to fake things in order to cope with the world and everything in it. We’ve
all done it. So, if an empath catches on to this trait about you, it might just
mean that he or she sees that characteristic in themselves, as well.
IF YOU’RE AN EMPATH, YOU WILL
RECOGNIZE THESE SITUATIONS THAT CAUSE YOU TO FEEL DRAINED:
.Someone acting like a pushover,
so others will automatically accept them.
.Someone who smiles and acts friendly, but is really seething with
anger and hatred.
.Someone who feels vulnerable and insecure, yet tries to act tough.
.Someone who forces themselves to act a certain way, which goes
against their personality.
.Someone who constantly says nice things (without meaning them) to
.Someone who lies or exaggerates stories so others will like them.
AFTER EXPERIENCING THAT, EMPATHS
REACT LIKE THIS:
.You avoid them. It’s not that they did something wrong, you just
don’t get good vibes from them.
.Forming logical sentences, and speaking clearly is exceedingly
.You get a sense of impending dread and feel uncomfortable around
them. This only dissipates when you leave.
.Feeling physically ill after spending long periods of time near
.Feeling a sense of helplessness and becoming drained easily.
EMPATHS DON’T THINK THEY ARE BETTER
THAN ANYONE ELSE- BUT SOME PEOPLE ARE NEAR-IMPOSSIBLE TO TOLERATE.
Having a heightened sensitivity to the world makes
them physically and emotionally sick. That’s just how it is.
For most people, their biggest cause of unhappiness
is due to not knowing themselves. When we hide a side of ourselves from the
world without knowing why, it causes us pain. Be your true and authentic self-
it’s emotionally freeing!
