As an Empath in a relationship, there are many different challenges that you go through compared to other relationships.
A relationship is defined as a way in which two or more concepts, objects or people are connected. It is a state of a connection.
Romantic relationships are the connection between two (or more) people while showing romantic gestures and deep trust.
As an Empath, there are certain characteristics and traits that affect this romantic relationship.
Feel connected to another’s emotions
Experience mood swings
Are natural healers
Love deep and intensely
Are negatively affected by watching violence or anger
Are drained by social interactions
Take on other people's energy
Are overwhelmed by crowds
Are highly sensory-sensitive
When an Empath is unaware of their personality traits they can feel a sense of being overwhelmed and exhausted.
Without the proper self-care practices an Empath can become a people pleaser, co-dependent, constantly energetically drained and feel lost.
If an Empath who is unaware and even aware of their personality traits enter a relationship, there can be struggles for power and connection.
As an aware Empath myself, I am very aware of the effects that other peoples energies have on me.
