Empath problems...

 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!

**6 ways worry can spoil your weekend**

1. After a lovely day out with friends you start replaying conversations and worrying about what you said and how it sounded, which reminds you of that thing you did 10 years ago, remember how embarrassing that was? 🤦🏼‍♀️

2. You take some time out to recharge but then feel guilty about all the things you could have done with that time and end up feeling bad for not being the perfect / friend/ wife/ daughter/ sister/mother.....🤷🏼‍♀️

3. You overdo the food and drink and then feel gripped by thoughts of regret and failure but continue to eat crap because you’ve already done the damage. 😳

4. You feel like everyone on Instagram/ Facebook/ Twitter / Snapchat is having a much better time than you and start wondering why your life is so dull.🙁

5. You watch an action movie but then spend time replaying the scary bits in your mind and considering if it COULD happen to you... How might that go.. ?😱

6. Sunday is spent worrying about what might possibly go wrong at work during the week ahead and rehearsing pretend arguments in your head... always best to be prepared 😗

🛑 STOP! 
ALL OF THIS IS EXHAUSTING!

Every time you worry you are releasing stress hormones around your body. Leaving you on high alert, feeling panicky, tearful and drained.
