Empaths go through much more than non-empaths think. Well, we all face things in our daily life, but the things we face are not always the same as the things others face.
Because empaths are so isolated and yet surrounded by so many different energies, they tend to struggle with things that most people wouldn’t normally have trouble with.
Empaths are capable of absorbing emotions and really feeling things on a deeper level, and that is not always a good thing. Below is a list of the difficulties they face, these can be quite difficult and require a lot of effort to deal with.
7 tough “problems” only true empaths know about:
1. To say “no” when you have to say it.
Empaths often have a hard time saying no. They know when to say it but are not always able to do it.
Learning to say no is liberating enough for the empath.
2. To show empathy for those who don’t deserve it.
Empaths tend to help everyone, even people they shouldn’t. Others often take advantage of it and it’s quite frustrating to experience that.
Everyone tends to unload on them.
