The Dark Side Of The Empath
The dark side of the Empath is considered a mythical beast to be feared, shunned, and denied. The dark side of the Empath lays beneath the label of “Empath”…..deep within the repressed and denied “self”. It comes in the recognition of being human, as much as a higher being. It arises in the acknowledgment of trauma, abuse, and other experiences which act as catalysts of change. It comes from going through the authentic experience of one’s own emotions that have been long suppressed. The dark side of the Empath is about meeting human within themselves and reintegrating it within themselves. It means the Empath must face their own pain, their own victimization, and their own shortcomings. The dark side of the Empath isn’t just about their pain and reintegration, though. Because the Empath is human, they are as likely to be judgmental, angry, jealous, proud, lazy, greedy, unforgiving, apathetic, prejudiced, abusive, needy, and so much more. Being an Empath gives a person the potential to see from another person’s perspective and feel what they feel. At the same time, though, this does not mean that the Empath will offer them kindness and compassion. This gift has the ability to heal and to harm depending on who utilizes it and how it is used. The important thing to remember is that, despite all the differences, we are all human. We are all on the same journey, learning to survive, and striving to evolve. We are all on the same path…. and we are all light and dark.
