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.
