Are You Using The Word Empath Not To Have Strong Boundaries?

One thing I’ve noticed is the labeling of oneself as an “empath” to make an excuse for not having strong boundaries.⁠⠀


⁠⠀As I speak about on this past week’s @highestselfpodcast solocast on Spiritual Bypass, we are ALL empaths⁠🙌🏽⠀
⁠⠀
Humans can feel what other humans feel⁠.⠀
⁠⠀
This is why we cry when we someone else crying or laugh when we see them laughing⁠.⠀
⁠⠀
Not being an empath means you’ve shut down your humanness⁠.⠀
⁠⠀
The more we open our hearts, the more we feel⁠💙⠀
⁠⠀
When we go through a spiritual awakening, we open our hearts more and more, thus can feel all these things we were once numb to⁠.⠀
⁠⠀
This is a BEAUTIFUL thing.. and an invitation to learn how to operate from that point of openness, otherwise you’ll just shut down that heart of yours again⁠.⠀
⁠⠀
Have times where you let yourself feel all the feels, sob in your journal, cry with that rom-com⁠.⠀
⁠⠀
And also, learn how to master your own emotions so when you’re confronted with the sadness of the world, you don’t lose yourself in it⁠🧘🏽‍♀️⠀
⁠⠀
Feeling other people’s feelings FOR them is not desirable because then you aren’t feeling YOUR feelings and then you actually can’t really HELP them⁠.⠀
⁠⠀
You are in YOUR body for a reason and THAT is your compass, your home, your anchor⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Have empathy for others, and also know what is yours and what is someone else’s⁠🙏🏽⠀ We need you IN the world, spreading your love and joy 💙
