Being an empath is really hard sometimes, but it is a beautiful gift that allows us to be the moon on someone's darkest night, especially if you are also a healer. But what happens when an empath is dealing with their own dark place? Detachment. Sharing the gift of unconditional love and encouragement with others is something I'll never deny the world. But it is hard sometimes when I don't feel I have the strength to shine my light. In these times, I rely on another gift; the gift of being able to detach and compartmentalize my emotions. By setting our own pain aside, we are able to focus our attention on being there for someone else. However, detachment taken to the extreme and used as a constant escape, can be detrimental. We still have to work on ourselves and make sure we are full. After all, we cannot pour from an empty cup. So all you empathics out there, make sure you are taking care of you too.
Brightest blessings, peace, love, and light.
