Being an empath is a gift. It is more than tearing up about everything. It is about being able to see feel the beautiful complexities of emotions. Do not feel low for being emotional. There are benefits to being an empath that you haven’t realized.
An empath has better intuition than other people. You can decide what is good and bad for you. You can sense when the time is right and when it is a bad time. Listen to your emphatic side and act on your intuitions.
An empath has a better understanding of their emotional complexity. You will rarely find an empath who is not extremely clear in their articulation of the exact emotive factors of a scenario. Empaths are not only good at understanding the world outside but also the world within.
An empath has an awareness of others. You are aware of others’ feelings and situations better. You can not only feel their overt emotions but also their covert sentiments. As such, you have a better understanding of people than most.
An empath understands the importance of spending time with oneself. You are likely to take the time to sort out your feelings. As an empath, you are likely to have complex emotions and on top of that your empathic abilities would add other’s emotions into the mix. But you would be better at handling the emotions too.
An empath has a better ability to focus. You have experience in singling out your emotions from their complex web. That has left you with the ability to center yourself and think with clarity. You have a better attention span and can learn things more easily than others.
An empath gives better attention to details. You have the eye that can find the glitch in the system. You can pay close attention. You’d feel unsettled unless you have verified everything. Your job would be nothing if not thorough. You can pick out layers of subtleties through your hyper-awareness.
An empath has a deeper understanding. Not only are you able to feel things with better clarity, but you are also able to investigate into the depth of matters. You cover the length, breadth, and depth when you learn and make your understanding compact.
An empath has higher social awareness. You are considerate towards others even if they are complete strangers. You care about humans and go the extra mile to ensure everyone’s convenience.
An empath is more creative. Your insight into other’s emotions leaves you better equipped with the ability to touch them. Whatever resource is given to you, you make gold out of it. You will have an edge when it comes to evoking in others the feelings you wish.
You are not alone. There are others like you. If you are fortunate enough to meet another empath you will see how deep and wonderful a connection you could create.
