How do you control projecting Empathy and recieving Empathy? I actually have both among other things. Where do you find stability around people who are normally emotionally unstable? Empathy is the gift I have the most trouble with. It feels intrusive to know how someone else feels emotionaly, and it feels wrong to project my feelings on someone else simply because I have no control over it.
What do you do?
I use that empathy to understand another person's problem. That way I can best know what they need and how I can help them. To me it is a wonderful thing to be able to do. Stability will come from within you, not from other people. Understand the strength you have inside you and know that you are capable of helping people without being intrusive.
Peace and blessings.
