Empath, you were asked to take on…
💜 Someone else’s emotions
💜 Someone else’s fears
💜 The responsibility of being someone else.
What you heard from others was: “𝘚𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘮𝘦 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘮𝘺 𝘰𝘸𝘯 𝘦𝘮𝘰𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴, 𝘐 𝘥𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘩𝘰𝘸 𝘵𝘰 𝘥𝘦𝘢𝘭 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮, 𝘴𝘰 𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺’𝘳𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘱𝘰𝘯𝘴𝘪𝘣𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘺”.
Here is why you heard it so loudly:
➡️ someone else could/would not take ownership of their emotions, for fear of facing them.
➡️ you felt like you had to take it upon yourself to release that person of their emotions.
So, your go to cycle became—
🔄 take their feelings
🔄 replace your own emotions with theirs
🔄 make them happy
🔄 ease their discomfort
🔄 struggle with yourself trying to figure out how to identify your own emotions.
Now this isn’t a quick fix, there is some work to be done.
𝟓 𝐣𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐧 𝐫𝐞𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐬𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐞:
1️⃣ Does this cycle happen more frequently with specific individuals in my life?
2️⃣ If yes to the above question, think back to a time when this individual intentionally or unintentionally expected you to relieve them of their emotions?
3️⃣ Why do you feel obligated to take on this person’s emotion?
4️⃣ How can I distinguish what is being projected onto me and what I truly feel?
5️⃣ Reflect: what am I truly feeling during this experience?
At the end of the day, you're only responsible for carrying your own emotions.
