11 Things You Didn’t Know About An Empath

11 Things You Didn't Know About An Empath

Let us just start by saying that if you are around an empath, this means that you are very lucky.

Aren’t they just the nicest people?

Always there to help you out and to listen to your stress and problems and always trying their best to help you out and ease out your troubles.

But the thing is, all this comes at a price.

Yes, the empaths pay a price for helping and reaching out to others.

Yes, they do and it is in terms of their own energy and emotions.

Empaths constantly find themselves exhausted and depressed and they feel that no one really knows them well.

They really feel very deeply misunderstood and they reach a level of pain where they start to hide things from the people around them.

So, here is a list of things that the empaths around you must be hiding from you. It’s time you pay attention to the empaths as well.

1) They won’t show how sensitive they are to their surroundings:

Empaths are highly sensitive to the things that happen around them. But somehow, they resist showing this sensitivity to the people around them.

They do so because they don’t want to hurt the feelings of the people around them.

Empaths feel that the people around them are already very stressed and thus they don’t show their feelings in order to safeguard others.

But, in the process of hiding these feelings, they end up being sad and broken themselves.

2) They suck emotions:

Didn't Know About An Empath

They have the uncanny ability to suck all the emotions around them.

This means that they can absorb all the emotions of people around them and in this way they can really help out those people.

They do this by simply listening to the emotions of the people around them. They listen and they absorb and this is the way they heal the people around them.

3) They are shy and like to be left alone:

You may assume that an empath who is constantly engaging with people around him/ her would love to talk to people and be with people.

But in actuality, empaths are just very shy. They love their time alone and they love spending that time recuperating from the overwhelming emotions that they handle all the time.

4) They love the company of nature:

Empaths love to spend time in nature. They accumulate the energy of nature and use it to heal people. Even a small short walk in the park makes them happy and stress-free.

5) They know when you lie to them:

They can absolutely figure out when you are lying to them.

This is because they have seen almost all sorts of people around them and this extreme engagement with the people makes them aware of who the genuine ones are and who are just lying to them.

So, don’t lie in front of an empath.

6) They feel like they have given too much:

Sometimes, they feel that they are giving too much to the world and receiving too less.

These are the times when they are exhausted and tired and they have no energy to deal with the emotions of other people.

But somehow, empaths heal themselves and come back to help the people around them.

7) Parasites love them:

Parasites love empaths

Social Parasites recognize the empaths and use the empaths to dump all of their negative emotions and stress.

Parasites are very smart because they know that the empaths are so soft that they won’t deny helping them. Thus, they feed off the energy of the empaths.

8) Intuition is their thing:

Empaths have a very good intuition. They are actually naturally intuitive.

This can also result in them having dreams and visions about what is happening to people around them.

    Very interesting. I have a lot of those qualities. My troubled mother passed away 11 years ago and this year, the block I had around me began to dissolve and I began to understand her deep resentments, sorrow, rage and life disappointments. She took a lot of that out on me, obviously, because she instinctively knew I wouldn’t/couldn’t throw it back on her. She’s the real reason I was sick a lot as a child. Like I said. This is all quite interesting. Amazingly, I managed to find my own path out of early illnesses when I realized I was no longer sick all the time after I left home. I also see that the health problems I now have are connected to family problems, so I will work on that…..

  3. I agree with all of what written except the shy part. I am an empath and i am not shy at all.Along with being an empath i am very focused on the people around me and I am very straight forward. My friends know, don’t ask if you don’t want the truth. I don’t sugar coat anything. I have been hurt to many times to be anything but straight forward. Some say I am just being mean.

  4. A lot of the above article is true to varying degree I caught an exe collegue lying more then once I faced him he smerked and said oh well the thing was he was popular with the other worker’s I don’t know what it that people who lie and cheet steal get on better in life then people who are honest

  5. I am grateful that I saw this title and took the time to read it, and several more! Finally, FINALLY, the emotions I feel so very deeply, so much so that I have to hide myself away and recharge make sense! The feelings, or vibrations as I call it, of the people around me and their individual needs. My inability to disconnect, until I am alone, exhausted, sucked dry from both giving of myself & others taking of me. The feeling that I know others, but nobody knows me (except for my oldest & dearest friend – she knows my ugly & everything else and still loves me!), and I prefer it that way even in my loneliness. Now I understand myself more & realize that there is a group of us… Not just quirky me! Thank you so very much!☮️

  6. I have always known that I’m different. The more I read the more I understand that my “different” is in many ways a gift. I have precognition. Even when are far away, I can feel strong emotions of one who I care deeply about. The feeling grabs me. I can feel it in the pit of my stomach. It won’t let me go until I contact my loved one. Almost always, my feeling was right. When I am exposed to an empathetic subject, other’s pain is most prominent, I start to cry/sob unmercifully. Again, if it relates to a loved one, I have to call them to tell them, “No matter how the world may look down on you, know that you have my love forever.” I saw a video of a dog who got lost in the mountains. Someone found her and broke all of her legs. The video showed her making it down the mountain walking on 4 flopping legs. I thought my heart would break I cried so hard. I just said to someone yesterday, “I think I have an illness. I wonder if I can get treatment for too much empathy?” Some people look at me like I’m a freak, “Why do cry about ‘everything’?” Trust me I try, but it’s not easy. The ones who care say, “Don’t quell your empathy! That’s what makes you the lovely person that you are!” A friend of mine had a life’s dream to make the world a better place. I swear we are twin souls. It’s like looking into a mirror when we visit. The number of spiritual and real life details are so many that it’s hard to believe. We’ve started a Facebook page and a you tube channel with recorded messages from both of us. What I’ve learned from your site today has set me free. I am sure this is how God intended me to be. As of today, I love me more. Thank you so much. Love, Sandy
