I will protect my energy around draining people. I will learn how to set healthy boundaries. I will learn to say “no” at the right times. I will listen to my intuition about the relationships that are nurturing for me.

excerpt from The Empath’s Survival Guide
Both narcissists and Empaths suffered from early childhood trauma. The Empaths took that pain and became more compassionate, not wanting others to suffer the same fate they did. While the narcissists got angry and decided to take their anger out on the the world. Vowing to put themselves first. Empaths were strong enough not to let the trauma destroy their goodness. While narcissists were weak and let the trauma overcome them.

Differences Between Codependency And Confident Empathy
Codependency• Your behavior might hurt me, but you can't "help" it because of your past.• I betray myself to have you in my life.• I need your approval.• I enable you to engage in negative behavior if it means connecting to me.• I'll be who you want me to be.
Confident Empathy• You're capable of healing + I have clear boundaries.• If having you in my life is self-betrayal, I'll say goodbye.• I enjoy your company.• I hold you accountable even if that means you disconnect.• I'll be the person I am.
You have a soft heart, and a pure soul, that's why you feel everything so deeply. Be clear on one thing: this is your superpower, not your weakness. The world needs more of you so don't suppress who you are. It is not your job to heal every person you meet, but it's your job to make sure your kind nature remains intact throughout your journey. Stay close to those who genuinely appreciate you, and stay far away from those whose only goal is to take advantage of your energy. You are one of the rare gems the Universe has blessed with heightened clairvoyance and divinity. Keep shining your light everywhere you go.

And that means I feel things so very deeply. I don't forget easily and the pain lingers a little longer. I get overwhelmed easily and my environment affects me more than I want it to. I have to be mindful with what I watch and what I listen to. And that means I have to disconnect periodically. To check in with myself and ground myself when needed. My intuition is almost always on point. I understand energy. I know what's left unsaid and what's lingering underneath the surface. So when I switch up, it's because I know what was said when I wasn't ar
