it means you are regularly affected and absorbing the energy of those around you and have an intuitive ability to feel their emotions and moods.
Everyone emits energy and feelings, whether they want to or not. Empaths are like emotional sponges, soaking up everything around them and processing what it means for them as well as the person giving off those vibes.
For that reason, it can be incredibly draining as an empath because you are always dealing with other people’s emotional state, even if you don’t want to.
The worst type of person for an empath to be around is someone who is fake and interacting or just being around such a person can provoke a strong reaction in an empath.
They could be left feeling emotionally drained, helpless and on guard or uncomfortable when they are near this person.
Other emotions they may experience is an unknown sense of unhappiness and sadness, as well as anxiety.
Empaths are so sensitive to the world around them that these effects could be physical, meaning they feel sick or struggle with forming sentences or speaking openly.
