We all know about the common traits shared by empaths. Lets look at some of their most admirable qualities.
You think paranormal is just about ghosts and spirits? Disagree! There are beliefs that we are gifted with emotional abilities we hardly recognize and being an empath is one of them.
An empath is not like everyone of us. They are indeed human with superpowers.These are people who possesses the ability to easily connect emotionally to other people and feel them, understand them.
It is necessary to keep in mind that an empath is not just a person who has the virtuous quality to empathize with another person. Empathy is just a complimentary quality that comes with being an empath. In fact, according to Daniel Goleman, empathy is one of the important components of emotional intelligence, including self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation and social skills.
Sadly, we Homo-Sapiens have failed to discover the voice of an empath within ourselves because of the rat race we are blindly following. We have lost the ability to empathize with others, both towards human and non-human.Time has wrapped us in the illusion of life, the half of which we have lived to silence the empath in us.The reasons are not only confined to that, but also includes the way society teaches us life, where too much attention is given to emotional detachment, to pursuing and achieving goals and social media creating a disconnection with our inner world.
Thankfully, some people still stay connected to their inner world but often some of them struggle to make sense of the qualities they have as an empath.
If you often find yourself enquiring others if they are also “deep feelers” like you, you might need to know these traits of an empath to find if you can relate to them.
Following are the 7 central traits of an empath, to help you know more about them, feel blessed to have them around you:
1. Sensible and not just sensitive.
An empath has the ability to deeply connect with other people and take their energy vibes. They understand one’s situation and act according to it. Don’t you think that’s sensible enough to feel someone else’s actions and not giving a reaction to it or only responding if the situation demands it?
They quickly sense the environment around them and are able to sense and adapt to the slightest changes. They are non-respondent only when they have highly toxic and manipulative people around them. They are not insensitive but choose to walk away from an space filled with negativity, disharmony and anything that creates an uncomfortable state to them, further destroying their mental health.
2. Social and not always introverted.
Not all empaths are introverts and not all extroverts are narcissists!
Empaths are great with social interactions and have the ability to mingle around with people of different mental set. They are socially active even though their social circle may not have huge number of members.
They are more comfortable interacting with sober-spirited, genuinely kind people. They are emotionally expressive and are great receptors of other’s emotions and hence can easily decode other people’s emotional experiences as closely as if their own. That’s why people often believe they can read mind! But what they really do is absorb the emotions around them to experience it within themselves.
