Ever been told you are too nice? Perhaps you’re an empath just like me.
💜Being an empath is actually quite hard work. As a naturally empathic human, there is a lot to think about.
💗Empaths are very aware of the thoughts and feelings of others and often do anything to avoid upsetting people. They are highly sensitive to people’s emotions and often ‘feel’ what others are feeling and not saying.
💜I speak from experience when I say that this is a gift that when used correctly can be wonderful.
🙋🏼♀️BUT nice girls need boundaries too otherwise it will leave you utterly depleted. 🤦🏼♀️
💗As Brene Brown says in her book - Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice, you cannot continue to be compassionate without boundaries. That doesn’t mean you have to stop being nice, or stop using your empath power. As I’m learning in my own life, you can be nice and strong at the same time!
