Emotional Sponge

"NO is a complete sentence." ~Judith Orloff, M.D.

Dr. Judith Orloff identifies an empath as an emotional sponge. She writes: “World–class nurturers, empaths are highly sensitive, finely tuned instruments when it comes to emotions. Because they interpret the world intuitively, they tend to feel everything (sometimes to an extreme) and can therefore fall prey to stressful emotions, anxiety, panic attacks, and depression, especially if they don’t set and maintain boundaries. The right mix of intellect, feeling, and groundedness can help them get centered.”

Are you an emotional sponge, taking it all in?

Are you too emotional?

Have you learned to put up boundaries?

Have you learned to release stress and anxiety?

Have you learned to be compassionate and loving without taking on the emotions of another?

Here is a short video of Dr. Orloff describing an emotional empath.
