“Love yourself enough to set boundaries. Your time and energy are precious. You get to choose how you use it. You teach people how to treat you by deciding what you will and won’t accept.”
- Anna Taylor
Empathic people (known as empaths) feel responsible for, and absorb, other people’s emotions and physical symptoms. They do everything they can to keep the peace and not rock the boat. What they feel doesn’t matter. All my life I felt it was my job to make my mother happy, a thankless job that never worked out for her, or me. A scene in a movie woke me up to my empath behavior. A daughter in her fifties who’d lived with her healthy mother her whole life, finally said, "I gave up everything for you." And the mother said, "I never asked you to.”
Being empathic isn’t a bad thing, but taking on another person's pain is. Empathy means, "in feeling.” While sympathy means, "with feeling.” And apathy means, “without feeling.” A balance is needed between these three emotions. How often do we feel the need to help, save, or support others who've often never even asked for, appreciated, or wanted, our help.
A Letter from an Empath - written by Shahida Arabi says it best.
While I love to help others, I'm not responsible for fixing your life or catering to your toxicity. I'm not responsible for managing your triggers, walking on eggshells or telling you what you want to hear in order to keep the peace. I am not your emotional punching bag, nor am I your emotional sponge. I do not exist for your pleasure or as a site for your projected pain. My responsibility is to maintain healthy boundaries, especially with those who are unhealthy.

"What day is it?"
"It's today," squeaked Piglet.
"My favorite day," said Pooh.

The smallest things make me happy.
Watching the moon rise across the river.
Having a full pot of homemade vegetable curry on the stove.
Being in the present enough to know this is where I want to stand.
Creating stories word by word.
Listening to the wild roosters in the park across the street greet the morning.
Moving in beauty along the river, in the city, on the beach.
Seeing possibility everywhere I look.
Eating organic veggies from the farmers market.
Sleeping with the shutters closed in complete darkness.
Reading a poem a day.
Connecting with a faraway friend.
Accepting guidance and support.
Learning through online courses.
Growing in my abilities.
Writing children's books.
Working with an amazing illustrator who turns my ideas into reality.
Receiving the gift of time to focus on my creative life.
Holding my husband's hand.
Sharing my world with others.
Loving this gift of life.
