Let’s look at what has been happening and see if you can identify with any of these: Rather than face the real issue of loneliness, I have dedicated myself to my work and various business enterprises.
The people out there in the real world can see and have benefited from my productive endeavor. It’s only no when I have something else on that I am doing for someone else. Since then, I have raised two children, who are now nineteen and sixteen, without a family support network.
We’re super-responders; our sensory experience of relationship is the equivalent of feeling objects with fifty fingers instead of five.
Energetically sensitive people unknowingly avoid romantic partnership because deep down they’re afraid of getting engulfed.
Being in a relationship does not always take away loneliness -- it often causes it.
To my surprise, the last man taught me that the last nine years have not been a waste.
Being single does not mean that I am not of value to society (which is what I had been thinking).
In “Emotional Freedom” I describe empaths as a species unto themselves.
Whereas others may thrive on the togetherness of being a couple, for empaths like me, too much togetherness can be difficult, may cause us to bolt. We tend to intuit and absorb our partner’s energy, and become overloaded, anxious, or exhausted when we don’t have time to decompress in our own space.
