Empaths are the healers of society. They want to help everyone because they understand everyone, and they can feel others’ pain as their own. And because they always try to see the best in people, they also believe that other people are as good, fair, and decent as they are.
Well, they are wrong. Not everyone takes responsibility for their actions and apologizes when they hurt someone as empaths do.
There are people who have other motives, goals, and different behavioral patterns that empaths can’t even understand. Empaths are not able to understand that some people don’t apologize simply because they don’t feel like they have anything to apologize for. These people care only about getting what they want and if someone gets hurt in the process – it’s not their problem.
And even though not all people are narcissists, sociopaths, or psychopaths, many people are toxic in some way or another and if you are an empath it is best to approach them with caution.
Because, if your empathetic soul gets involved with someone who is toxic to your well-being (it may be a friend, a romantic partner, a co-worker, a boss, or even a member of your family) you will soon find yourself abused because of their bad treatment.
And the sad truth is that empaths attract these kinds of toxic people because their empathetic nature not only takes responsibility for themselves and their actions, but it takes responsibility for the actions of the toxic person as well. Empaths always feel that whatever bad happens in the relationship it is their fault.
When the empath sees that the other person is upset, hurt, angry, or abusive, they immediately start thinking that it is because of something they did, and they will try to do everything in their power to fix it.
The empaths successfully free others of all the responsibility for their actions and start putting the blame on themselves. And the others are happy to let them do that.
Even more so, they tend to take advantage of this side of the empath, so whenever they get confronted for their bad behavior, they will quickly turn the situation to their advantage, so that it will be the empath’s fault again.
Impressive, right empaths? What an excellent manipulative trick.
Well, empaths, it’s time to take matters into our hands and reclaim our power. It’s time to finally understand that WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR OTHER PEOPLE’S ACTIONS. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR REACTIONS. AND, IT IS NOT ALWAYS OUR FAULT!
And we shouldn’t be the ones who are always fixing the relationship. If someone is treating us badly, it is time to let them go. Because they are not empathetic like we are. They are not good and nice people. They are toxic, and they can’t be fixed. And we are better without them in our life.
