What if I stop caring?
What if I stop listening?
What if I stop responding?
I think my life would be a little less hassled and a lot calmer because I will not be burdened by the emotional stress people always put on to me when they ask me for advice or just listen to them.
It is difficult being an Empath people, be considerate. We take on your emotional baggage like it is our own. We REALLY feel what you feel because it is in our (Empath’s) nature to absorb everything that is being shared to us.
So all I wish is to be a little considerate. When you asks us to listen, we listen. Don’t just ask for our attention and just say NEVER MIND afterwards. I am prepared to listen yet you think it is easy for me to just shut that off in a instant. NO! You are dead wrong.
So, I will never stop caring; I will never stop listening; and I will never stop responding. You know why? Because I was born this way. I was born to care, listen, and respond to the emotional baggage and burdens friends and family gives us.,
