Empaths are highly sensitive individuals, who have a keen ability to sense what people around them are thinking and feeling.
Empaths are highly attuned to other people’s moods, good and bad. They feel everything, sometimes to an extreme. They take on negativity such as anger or anxiety, which can be exhausting for them. If they are around peace and love, though, their bodies take these on and flourish.
There are many benefits of being an empath. On the bright side, empaths tend to be excellent friends. They are superb listeners. They consistently show up for friends in times of need. They are big-hearted and generous. Empaths also tend to be highly intuitive and emotionally intelligent. Empaths have one rare trait that makes them even more powerful – these people are experts in human psychology. Empaths are “emotional sponges,” who can absorb feelings from other people very easily.
