Empaths are usually quiet and take a while to handle compliments because they’re more likely to point out another persons positive attributes and even empath traits. They are highly expressive in all areas of emotional connection, and talk openly, and, at times, quite frankly in respect to themselves. Empaths have few problems talking about their feelings.
Sometimes, they can be the exact opposite and be reclusive and unresponsive at the best of times and may even appear ignorant at times and arrogant at others. Most find it difficult to block out others and that can be tough to deal with, at least for the learning empath struggling with a barrage of emotions from others, as well as their own feelings.
Empaths have a tendency to openly feel what is outside of them more so than what is inside of them which may cause empaths to ignore their own needs. In general an empath is non-violent, non-aggressive and leans more towards being the peacemaker and in general, any area filled with disharmony creates an uncomfortable feeling in an empath. If they find themselves in the middle of a confrontation, they will endeavor to settle the situation as quickly as possible, if not avoid it all together. If any harsh words are expressed in defending themselves, they will likely resent their lack of self-control, and have a preference to peacefully resolve the problem quickly. People of all walks of life and animals are attracted to the warmth and genuine compassion of empaths. Regardless of whether others are aware of one being empathic, people are drawn to them as a metal object is to a magnet! They are like beacons of light.
Even complete strangers find it easy to talk to empaths about the most personal things, and before they know it, they have poured out their hearts and souls without intending to do so consciously. It is as though on a sub-conscious level that person knows instinctively that empaths would listen with compassionate understanding.
Empaths are the listeners of life and are often problem solvers, thinkers, and studiers of many things. As far as empaths are concerned, where a problem is, so too is the answer. They often will search until they find one…if only for peace of mind.
