Do other people drain you?
Does the world get to you?
You may be an empath, someone who feels the emotions of those around them. While this can make you a wonderful friend and counselor, it can also mean that you have difficulty blocking out the negativity of others.
Most empaths aren’t fully aware of how much they allow others to affect them. Some choose jobs where they are under constant demand and never have time for themselves. Others hide away, trying to pretend that they are immune to the toxic attitudes of their neighbors. Nothing is more troubling than having someone else ruin your whole day, leaving you exhausted.

Whether you think of emotions as biochemical cascades in your brain or as energetic fields, these simple rules should help you maintain your health and balance.
