Every Empath Will Try To Hide These 10 Things From You

Do you suspect that you or someone close to you may be an empath?

Empaths are able to make special connections with the people around them. An empath can sense when they are needed.

Many times, an empath is the person in your life who is sometimes called “too sensitive”.

Empaths are very special and if you have on in your life then you can consider yourself lucky. However, empaths do need to be treated with special care.

First, let’s explain what an empath is. Being an empath is not about having the ability to feel sympathy. Sympathy is when we feel a sense of care and concern for other people.

When we sympathize with someone, it means we feel compassion for them and hope that their situation improves.

Empathy is the ability to understand the feelings of others. When someone is an empath, it means they have an especially deep understanding and connection to the feelings of people around them.

Empaths can feel other people’s feeling almost as if they were their own. There is research showing that an empath’s brain is wired that way.

Scientists have identified a specialized group of brain cells that are tied to the ability to empathize. When someone is an empath, it means these cells are especially sensitive.

Empaths should look out for people who are sociopaths, psychopaths, and narcissists. In terms of psychology, these people have the opposite traits as an empath.

These people are not able to feel empathy the way that normal people do.

Empaths like to protect themselves from being spotted, for a variety of reasons.

They can be concerned about who they make connections with and how emotionally difficult these connections might become.

Since empaths experience the emotions of other people almost as strongly as they experience their own emotions, they need to be very careful of the emotions they will encounter.

Here are some of the ways you can spot an empath…

1. Sensitivity

Empaths may try to conceal the fact that they are so sensitive. They do this in part so that they maybe seen as a source of strength for those around them.

Empaths don’t want to be a burden, so they hide their own emotions.

2. Ability to Absorb Emotions

An empath can feel happy when those around her are happy and down when those around her are down.

Empaths are so emotionally connected to others that they experience the emotions of others almost as if they were their own.

3. Introversion

Since empaths are constantly in touch with the emotions of the people they are with, they may avoid contact in order to get a break.

Spending some time alone means the empath can have some time to take a break and recover from feeling emotionally drained.

4. Connection to Nature

If you know someone who has a deep desire to spend time in nature, that person could be an empath.

There is nothing like the sense of happiness and peace that humans feel when we’re in a beautiful outdoor area.

Empaths feel this even more strongly than most people do. Nature can help an empath recharge their batteries with the positive feelings that they get from spending time in the outdoors.

5. Ability to Detect Lies

Empaths have a special ability to see through other people.

One of the ways this manifests itself is in an empaths ability to detect lies.

An empath can easily detect lies because they are able to read a person’s emotions and true intentions.

6. Giving Too Much

Empaths spend a lot of time and energy tending to other people’s needs. This can leave an empath with a lot of negative emotions.

Empaths feel a deep need to help others, but sometimes while they’re helping others they may be harming themselves emotionally.

When an empath tries to retreat so they can recharge, they can sometimes feel like they’re being selfish.

Empaths need to remember to take care of themselves even though they may not be used to putting themselves first.

7. Heightened Intuition

Naturally, empaths are very connected to their own feelings.

An empath will trust their gut feelings to make important decisions. Empaths have a sense of being connected to the universe and are able to use intuition to guide them on a daily basis.

8. Tendency to Get Stressed Out

Because empaths feel all emotions very strongly, it can be easy for an empath to become overwhelmed.

In addition, having too many tasks at a time can also make an empath feel inundated. This can be very stressful for an empath.

9. Easy to Take Advantage Of

A manipulative person can easily take advantage of an empath.

This is because manipulators are able to spot empaths and use their empathic abilities against them in order to get what they want.

A manipulator knows what buttons to push with an empath in order to achieve their goals.

Empaths need to be wary when they get the sense that they are being manipulated by someone.

10. Ability to Love Deeply

As with all of the emotions they experience, an empath will feel love very deeply.

This love extends from their spouse or partner to their family and to all of the people in their lives.

Empaths make the people in their lives feel extremely loved and cared for.

Empaths also have a strong appreciation for society in general.

Empaths are very special people who need to be appreciated and protected.

If you have an empath in your life, give them the time and emotional space they need to recharge.

Understand that they are not being anti-social when they take some alone time.

It can be difficult and exhausting to go through life as an empath, but empaths also have a special gift that should be treated with care and respect.

  1. God Bless you Dylan,
    You are an amazing soul,I do hope that you are too taken time out for you as well,I do not know you personally but somehow I sense you to are an empath or one who comes very close to.
    I to am learning my own self this past few months,even more so.I feel that I am an empath,it resonates with me so very deeply all my life. It’s abitter/sweet journey,only because every emotion are everywhere and at times we have to try to figure out who,where,what if it’s not oneself or family/friends or the earth herself,I believe the earth feelings are intuned with ours and the empath feel deeply towards the earth as well. When it was mentioned in this topic:”Empaths like to protect themselves from being spotted, for a variety of reasons.
    They can be concerned about who they make connections with and how emotionally difficult these connections might become.”… See, an empath can not completely protect their emotions 100%. Because we are connected with the Being of Love HerSelf,Shes intertwined within the fibres of a soul and that’s who She is Love,no matter what,who or where and when we get this amazing Divine Soul within our own, We spirit/humans most of the time are”Very” missed understood being an empath and go thru rather alot of negatively heartfully first, weather consciencely or unconsciously and an empath heart will do two things at those times of being missed understood, 1) run/close themselves off, as this topic talked about,2) run again but towards that person or cause, because the heart is speaking louder =feelings over the mind/survival,even tho the empath sees the negative Engery they also “SEE/FEEL” the person(s) own deeper wound(s) and the only thought is to give them love or help them in some way, I know sound craziest right!? See,the compassion flows DEEP! an empath has ran every course of emotions deeply to understand love on a deep level,I don’t know if that’s been talked about in great lengths. But empaths are labeled with all the other emotions as well and let’s face the facts,we still live in a world were souls are all trying to be heard and still learning to respect both sexs as equals and asking to learning to love
    Unconditional,no judgements and we aren’t quite there just yet and an empath aren’t perfect either. my point is, if anyone out there is an empath, I feel and am with you and if anyone knows of one, know this to be truth, if you and an empath quarrel, just know that they had felt and understood your feelings without thinking of themselves And will go thru great lengths to make life around you and them “okay” again but will not most likely cross any boundaries of another, out of respect not because they don’t want to go quickly “fix” the problem, another thing an empath goes to great lengths is to fix the problem and most of the time if the other person isn’t willing at that time, will cause the (or my thoughts run deep on a younger empath, there are many being born today and for this reason,
    To help bring Unity back together!) An empath will retreat within themselves even farther or worse which is hard to say, but again I believe that most suicidals maybe be empaths,this is only my thoughts I’m stateing here. Maybe we need to take a closer watch on our child empath much closer and try to understand them.I’m so sorry for going on about this I just hope it makes some sense, Thank you Dylan for sharing this.Be Blessed with abundance in Every area, much respect,love and peace
