I have always been an empath but lately I feel so heartbroken about what’s going on around me.
The political state of the country (UK) is a mess and people are suffering and struggling with the basic essentials for life.
I’m so grateful for the life I live and I am very fortunate (not wealthy by any means but mostly comfortable, have good people around me, a home, a job) but I feel terrible when I hear of those less fortunate me and it makes me so sad when I think of those who are suffering from disease for example.
Life is cruel and unfair and I know feeling this sad won’t help but I just wanted to speak to people who have felt this and some advice on what may help or what I can do to others.
You can volunteer in some capacity, in a way that makes sense, to help those you believe are less fortunate than you. You will not help a whole lot of people and you will not be able to fix “the political state of the country”, but if you can help one person, that is a good start and it is a whole lot!
I can absolutely relate, I’m an empath as well. It’s tough to see the news and hear and sense what other’s are going through. At a point in my life I was so overwhelmed that I had to shut myself off from the world due to me crying and not being in control of my emotions because of what I was feeling from others. Though I’ve accepted that God or the universe is in control and all things happens for a reason though it may be wrong and not fair to others in our eyes, that is the path that destiny has chosen for those individuals. I do feel better when I pray for them and send out positive reinforcements to the universe stating “everything will be okay for them someday”. It’s not much we can do, but I am glad that there are others out there who understand.
