9. EMPATHS HAVE A SPECIAL BOND WITH ANIMALS
Usually, empaths don’t have pets, because they do not want to “own” another being. They love seeing animals in their natural habitat, in nature. Sometimes even animals can sense their sensitivity and act differently around empathic people.
10. BEING EXHAUSTED IS EMPATH’S EVERYDAY LIFE
It is no surprise that listening to others’ worries and helping them will exhaust an empath. They feel everything others’ around them feel and that can wear them out by the evening.
11. IF YOU ASK FOR THEIR ADVICE, TAKE IT
Don’t make an empath go through your story or situation if you are not going to take his/her guidance in the end. They know what they are talking about and what you are going through. It is much easier for all the parties just to trust them.
12. THEY ARE EASILY DISTRACTED
They notice all the little things, sounds, smells around them. That also means that they lose their focus quite often and get easily distracted. Well, heightened sensitivity has its ups and downs.
13. EMPATHS DETEST NARCISSISM
As they are the most caring, understanding and helpful people in the world, they cannot stand their different ones. They can feel selfish, rude, toxic people from a mile away and they avoid them at all costs.
14. EMPATHS ARE HYPERSENSITIVE TO CERTAIN SOUNDS
This is also the reason they lose their focus. Everything is heightened to them, and it can be quite annoying to hear a buzz or pitch loudly. This also applies to smells, textures and lights.
15. THEY ARE THE BEST LISTENERS
They will listen carefully and cheer for your story. Empaths always have great advice because they can put themselves in your shoes. They are not judgemental at all because they understand why you have made certain decisions and they only want to help you.
16. ELECTRONICS ACT STRANGELY AROUND EMPATHIC PEOPLE
This might sound weird, but technology moves differently around individuals with high sensitivity. They might get shocked by touching the same things others would normally do. Also, computers might glitch, cars stall and phones die.
So now you understand better how empaths feel. It is not always easy to be different and believe some many more things than a regular person. But it is also unique and has a lot of positivity. Helping others is the most beautiful thing they do.
