10 Reasons Why You Should Never Mess With An Empath


10 Reasons Why You Should Never Mess With An Empath

Why You Should Never Mess With An Empath?

An Empath is the Best Mind Detective:

The term ‘Empath’ has been picked up from Greek “em” (in) and “pathos” (feeling), and it means such a person who can feel what others feel. This sense of feeling is multiplied several times in an empath. They are more sensitive and empathetic than any ordinary empathetic person.

If you are an empath, you are able to feel too much because of your sensitivity to the surroundings. Sadly, you can sense more negative energies and act malevolently. The misery, hate, and maliciousness weigh down your soul. The reason why we are fed up of all the negative people and the negativity that ensues from them. Many empaths get badly affected when they can’t distinguish between their own feelings and those which are coming from outside sources. Others around us cannot feel what we go thorough and we are misdiagnosed with depression and bipolar disorder. It’s in our bone to absorb the negativity coming from others, and the following quote truly explains us so well.

“Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes.” – William Gibson

We are truly fed up, and here are the 10 reasons why you shouldn’t mess with an empath.

1) We can instantly detect lies, ‘big’ or ‘small’

This is the strongest power that an empath is blessed with. When you lie to an empath, they will know it almost instantly. Even though they may not be sure 100% but still they will get some kind of alarm signals. They can do it because they have this great ability to sense discomfort and dishonesty. Whether it is a harmless lie, or a big lie spoken blatantly on their face, they will sense it. So, you should never mess with an empath.

2) We can spot a wolf in sheep’s disguise.

This is somewhat similar to the first. It’s the most powerful tool we have in our kit. And it’s the ability to identify the wolf disguised as a sheep. It’s those, who show all the time how well they mean, how good their intentions are, but inside they desire the worst for us. Empaths are much wiser than other people of their age and can penetrate through every falsehood.

3) We know when you are sarcastic.

Fake people always try to be flattery to be in the good books. Sycophancy is a skill they have honed too well. But, empaths can sniff every bit of falsehood, when you try to heap praise on them. We know when you don’t mean anything you are saying and your sarcasm is just meant to demean us.

4) You can’t hide your jealousy or hatred.

Like Jedi, empaths can also sense the hatred hidden in the people. When you pretend to be a friend to us, we can tell. When you have grudge against us, we can sense. We can tell when your feelings haven’t changed and you are just trying to show that you have moved on.

5) We know your prejudices.

Racists and homophobics do exist among us. These people are there and they have been in society. Some of them are brash enough to say extremely bad things on the face of the people they hate, there are others who are careful not to speak about their hatred in public. Empaths can’t stand bigotry, and whether you reveal your thoughts or not, we can easily sense them.

6) We can sense you’re not ‘fine’.

It’s your choice if you want to discuss your emotions with us or not. But, when you tell us, everything is okay, and you are going through emotional turmoil, we can make out.  When someone is tense, uncomfortable, scared or annoyed with something, we can read that, even though they appear calm and composed.

7) We know when you are not applying yourself fully.

People act fake, not because they wish to appear malicious; they don’t feel comfortable in their own skin or the condition of their life. Hiding behind your fake identity won’t help you in being what you really want to be. We can see that you are just not trying well enough to reach your maximum potential. So, don’t mess with an empath.

8) We know when you are self-destructive.

We come across people who have self-destructive tendencies. Or maybe they just enjoy playing the victim and create drama for the sake of fun. Or, perhaps you are posing as the tough guy, whereas in reality, you have your share of weaknesses and fears. You may try but you can’t escape our eyes. We can see you.

9) We know when you wear a mask.

There are some people who love to wear a garb to hide their real-self underneath it. They want to do this to show-off, to present themselves as someone they aren’t.  There are some others who take it further and try to create a new personality because they will feel no one would accept them for what they are. No matter what you try to hide, nothing can be hidden from our eyes.

10) We can understand your selfish intentions.

You shouldn’t mess with an empath because at the end, empaths can most of the times understand when you are trying to get better of us, or use us for you selfish ends. We can see it very clearly when someone tries to use us and we deeply abhor such intentions. Empaths are ‘givers’ and they offer their energy, time and money to anyone who is in need. We can make out if you really feel thankful for our help, or you are just using our generosity. Even if we can see your intentions clearly, you simply don’t care to point them out to you.
