An empath is someone who is very sensitive and connected to other people’s emotions, energy, motivations, and feelings. They take into account the needs and desires of others and sometimes even take on other people’s emotions so that they literally can feel what that person (or animal) is going through. When an empath makes a decision they do what is best for everyone around them, even if it means they may suffer or be negatively impacted.
In contrast, a narcissist is someone who is more concerned with their own self rather than anyone else. They put their own needs, wants, desires, and emotions first when deciding what to do and seek personal power and success over the greater good. Narcissists do not take into account how their actions may hurt others in their quest for glory and social status, and they’re blind to the damage that they may, and often do, end up causing.
