Being an empath is not a curse, it is a gift. But there are some things you may have to do to protect yourself and create boundaries.
Because your antennae are heightened to pick up on others vibrations more easily, you will feel what others are feeling.
The problem comes when your mind makes it yours and tries to solve it. Or you think you have to carry these feelings around.
You don’t and doing that serves no one.
You can choose what you want to carry around with you and hold space for any vibration that comes up.
That way you can be there for a friend or loved one in their time of need.
