Why Empaths Prefer To Stay Single and Not in Relationships

As a result, they become broken, bitter, and disheartened. Most empaths eventually lose hope of ever meeting their soulmates and experiencing a genuine connection with a partner who feels as deeply as they do.  Emotional trauma, abuse, and toxic relationship experiences are often the primary reasons why an empath wants to stay single rather than being in an unfulfilling relationship.

Self-awareness is the key 

When an empath becomes aware that they absorb external energies and that low vibrational energies can leave them feeling drained and fatigued, empaths will consciously tread carefully in relationships. Self-awareness will help them significantly reduce their chances of taking in toxic energies that can mess with their own vibrations.

“The sad thing that many of us empaths don’t realize is that often our desire to heal others is a disguised cry for help for our own healing. Because many of us weren’t taught how to value or nurture ourselves at a young age, we tend to unconsciously seek out our own healing in the healing of others.” – Mateo Sol

Self-protection and self-love can enable empaths to maintain their level of energy, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. As they refuse to absorb lower vibrational energy, they will be able to create a healthy and harmonious life for themselves. An empath needs to stay alone and desperately need their alone time as they first need to heal themselves before they can think about others, especially after a broken relationship.

Staying single is perhaps the best way for an empath to build a meaningful, happy, and fulfilling relationship.

  1. Interesting article. In my experience as an empath who has attracted her share of narcissists in the past. I worked allot on my shadow while alone, healed from my traumas so I didn’t need to continue attracting destructive patterns by learn lessons. The outcome; a fulfilling loving relationship, one in which we both grow as separate individuals and together..& oh, he happens to be an empath too! 😉

    1. This article is me. Being an empath has made me be a wonderful mother and friend but also causes me alot of mental pain. Most people do not understand me and view me as overly sensitive and too emotional. It takes me ten times longer to recover from negative things because I absorb them so deeply that I have to recover from a lower mental state than most. I feel that being an empath is a very sad existence because we are consumed by our own and others emotional state.
