Are you a sensitive person
who absorbs other
This may show up as:
Knots in your stomach and feeling edgy around certain people
Stress eating a whole bag of chips or cookies when you’re not even hungry
Feeling bloated and puffy, wishing your favorite skinny jeans fit again
Not wanting to leave your house, closing the door on your social life
Being easily triggered, snapping at your kids or partner without being able to control yourself
Verbal attacks by people who tell you you're too sensitive
Not being able to fall asleep because you have so much anxiety from the day
Being an empath or Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) has become even more challenging over the past couple of years. Have you noticed? 😬
As a sensitive person you really care about other people and you want them to be happy. You might be a people-pleaser and find yourself saying "Yes" when you want to say "No", or saying "No" when you want to say "Yes." You probably have a hard time honoring your own feelings and desires. You may notice that your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health is suffering.
When emotions are high and you take on other people's stress, anxiety, or fear you are essentially allowing them to dictate how you feel in any given moment. If you don't have enough personal space to decompress you end up feeling overwhelmed, powerless, and totally out of control.
It's easy for sensitive people to see themselves as victims of circumstance, of other people, or both.
Here's the thing though...
Being sensitive is not a weakness, it's actually a superpower, when you have the tools and support to harness it.
So isn't it time to take your power back?
Once you do, you will no longer be at the mercy of your partner, your kids, your boss, or the belligerent lady in line at the grocery store.
Imagine yourself a few months from now, standing next to someone you care about who is in a really terrible mood. The old you would head to the pantry feeling stressed and anxious, maybe even a little queasy. But the new you is feeling calm, cool and collected. The new you isn't getting caught up in this person's drama. The new you is feeling peaceful and breathing easily because you are so solid in your own energy that it doesn't matter what's going on in the outside world.
Your sensitivity doesn't disappear. In fact, it may be enhanced and you will understand it more. They key is that you are no longer rendered powerless by absorbing their fear or stress into your own body against your will. This is your superpower - being able to perceive and interpret energy from a place of strength and stability enables you to improve your own health and relationships, to make better decisions, and to be more effective in literally every area of your life.
There are no downsides to being who you truly are, connected to that power.
Physical, Mental, Emotional & Spiritual Health - it's an inside job and YOU are in the driver's seat.
