Empathy, the good, not so good? Most of us have empathy in some form for others; It’s how you ‘feel’ about a person and how you ‘feel’ towards them emotionally. Also, it’s in our everyday communication, especially amongst women, when we hear them say, “I know how you feel; I feel it too”. So it’s even an essential part of our communication with others because it brings us closer to that other person. No denying that….. empathy - Be Empathetic : The good, not so good

Empathy is not necessarily an ‘all good’ thing, though; it can get us into trouble……

When you hear someone say, “I know how your feeling; I’m feeling it for you”, that’s a beautiful thing, but the big thing is, “feeling for another” is not necessarily good for you or that other person. If you absorb and take on that other person’s emotional garbage, after a while, it’ll begin the harm you. When you take that person’s ‘stuff’, you may think that you’re helping them—you’re not. Yes, you’re listening and understanding, but it’s their stuff, not yours. So taking it on will not help them.

The empath typically feels emotions in the stomach, usually in the form of uneasiness or pain. Rarely do we think of the beautiful tingles of goodwill in the stomach.

Here’s something on self-esteem¬†you might find interesting too.

What do you do?

Something is going on with a friend, a colleague or a family member. What happens? There’s that ‘feeling’, that pain………

Please fix it! Do something. Please don’t ask why you’re feeling it, but the ‘why’ is irrelevant; it’s not you’ll ever find what screwy buttons have been pushed. You know who brought it on because you’ve just talked about it. You also know, and rarely admit to yourself, what the issue is.

Take the lead and fix it by discussing what you’re feeling with the other person. Tell them that you’re handling stuff, that it’s not yours and that you’re not going to hang onto it. That’s all; it’s as simple as that.

There’s more to this, and we’ll discuss it in another blog.

I’d like you to please work on this simple stuff now.
