9 Things Every Empath Doesn’t Want You To Know

Empaths are people who are really unique and special. They are highly sensitive, but they don’t want to be seen as that because they believe that others would mistake their sensibility for weakness.

If you have an empath in your life, you are probably aware of their extreme sensitivity and emotions. But, you need to be really careful with your relationship with them, because they won’t always tell you their problems and what they feel.

Here are 9 things that every empath will try to hide from you.

1. THEY GIVE TOO MUCH.

Empaths are the healers of society. Their mission is to help others no matter what. They put themselves and their needs aside, which can be emotionally traumatic for them. When they hide and ignore their feelings for a long time, their feelings will begin building up until eventually, they start overflowing.

2. THEIR SENSITIVITY ABSORBS OTHER PEOPLE’S EMOTIONS.

Every empath feels like they have to be strong for others because they want to help everyone in need. So, they will try to put their needs aside and will focus only on others’ feeling and desires. They hypersensitive nature is like a sponge and it absorbs everyone’s emotions, good and bad. This can get really overwhelming for them from time to time and they will need to isolate themselves to recover.  

3. THEY ARE EASILY STRESSED.

Every emotion that an empath has is intensified. So, day-to-day situations can make them feel overwhelmed and stressed more often than other people. It may even be damaging to their health. However, they will never admit to this because they don’t want to be seen as weak.

4. THEY ARE INTROVERTED.

Empaths value their alone time more than anything because they feel and absorb every energy and they need to be alone to recharge. However, they would never admit this to you because they don’t want to seem rude.

5. THEY ARE HUMAN LIE DETECTORS.

When it comes to reading other people’s words and actions – empaths are those who can see what’s really hiding beneath the mask and see their true colors. Empaths are great at detecting lies. However, when they catch you in a lie, they won’t say anything to you because they don’t want to make you feel uncomfortable.

6. THEY ARE EASILY TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF.

Empaths are very understanding with everyone and everything in their life. They value every human being and because of their sensitivity, their strengths are oftentimes perceived as weaknesses. They see the positive thing in any negative situation. This makes them easy targets for manipulators.

7. THEY ARE HIGHLY INTUITIVE.

Empaths are highly intuitive people. Their gut feeling helps them make the right decision every time. They are completely in tune with their emotions and their inner self. However, they will try to hide this thing from you because they believe that others will think that trusting their intuition is a stupid thing to do.  

8. THEY ARE MAGNETS FOR NEGATIVE PEOPLE.

Negative people are pulled towards empaths because they are attracted to empaths’ understanding and forgiving nature. They know that an empath will always listen to them, and they use them as a filter with which they replace their negative energy with the empath’s positivity.  

9. THEY LOVE DEEPLY.

Empaths are very loving people. They care for their loved ones deeply. When they love they love, they love intensely and passionately. They appreciate everyone in their life and these people are the most amazing lovers and best friends that everyone wishes to have.
