6 Ways to Shift Yourself from Pain Absorbing Empath to a Healing Empath
Sometimes you can become toxic to your own self.
Every human being perceives all kinds of emotions around them. Empaths are people who feel the emotions felt by other people on a deeper than usual level. Because of this, they often lose emotional balance because the lines between their own emotions and someone else’s emotions are so blurred, that they cannot tell if they are in pain because of their own feelings or if they are suffering in someone else’s pain. Every empath has to get to a place where they can find stability, because at the end of the day, they are human too. It is a wonderful thing to be, but sometimes you become toxic to your own self. Read on to find out how you can be a true healer.
1. Be Optimistic
It is easy to get bogged down by the negative things around you and sometimes it is not even your fault, but that does not mean that you let the negativity get to you and get you down. It might seem difficult, but it is ultimately in your hands to turn things around, and turn the pain into something positive. Realize that no matter how bad things are, there is always a positive side.
2. Say Goodbye to Your Insecurities
You do not exist to please other people; you live for yourself and the only person you need to keep happy is yourself. Be the person that you are and forget about your insecurities. You are much bigger than them and you should never forget that.
3. Spread Positivity
Do not give up believing that there is a positive side to everything because, most of the time, there is. Do not lose faith and keep working forward to remain positive. Make other people feel happier and more positive, as everyone plunges into living life.
Panicking and being anxious does not really help in any situation. Being calm and working things out, while being as composed as possible, is the most rational way to go about things.
5. Be Confident
Believe in yourself and know that it is possible to overcome everything that life throws at you, because you are only put through tough times that you can survive. Trust yourself and believe in your ability to emerge victorious every time that you face a difficulty.
6. Don’t Dwell
Do not cling on to things and dwell on emotions that are not yours. You can’t stop things from changing, neither you can force a change when you want to. If there is one thing constant in this world, it is change.
Being an empathic healer is a truly beautiful thing. It might seem difficult, but it is achievable, and once you get there, you will be able to help yourself as well as other people in ways you did not think were possible. Believe in the power of self and do things to the best of your abilities but never really forget yourself in the process. You will eventually get there.
