As an empath myself and a highly sensitive person, this was one of the most important things to learn. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Empathy doesn't mean I have to pick up their energy and carry it around. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Empathy is observing their energy, hold space for them, while being responsible for your own emotional response. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
