The ability to feel compassion for others is sympathy. Empathy goes a step beyond that. It is an “empathetic” means that makes them feel as if they were their own.
Too often, strong empathizers absorb much of the pain and suffering of their environment. This will malfunctioned emotionally and blocks their ability to function at a high level.
If you’ve ever been in a room with a negative person, you know how tangible his / her emotions may feel. You feel like his / her heaviness is seeping into you and it’s more difficult to keep your head up. Learn to defend this kind of toxic energy is an essential tool for life, because their emotional state that affects mentally, physically and spiritually. Let it be your own!
Here are five ways to stop the absorption of negativity people:
1. To go to please people
If someone is gossiping, complaining that or talking to you, do not take it personally or fixate on trying to make them like you. This will cause deeper into his / her field of negativity and make you emotionally and energetically dependent on their opinion.
be compassionate towards yourself and realize that not everyone will like it – and that’s okay! Everyone has different personalities, likes and dislikes and these will create a different life experience for each person. Show yourself love first and act as a force field around you that keep the opinions of others to drain.
2. To know when to say “no”
If you had a guest in your home, would you come on the porch and track mud all over your carpet, or before entering your personal space will be required to clean your shoes? If you ask for dinner once and he invites himself for the rest of the month? Or if he insisted on sleeping on his couch to save the trip tomorrow? All without your invitation?
Be generous can be a great thing, but there is a fine line to be aware of to make sure you and your generosity are not exploited. Do not accept naysayers, freeloaders, or emotional vampires of the past in which you feel comfortable. Set limits and enforce them!
This is your life. His body, space and personal time are sacred temples, so think carefully about what kind of people that access to them is allowed. There is nothing wrong with saying “no” as often as you feel you need. Establish clear rules about what you expect of others before giving her a place in his life.
3. Stop feeding the beast
Above, I threw the term “emotional vampire.” These are the parasitic personalities that literally feed your affection and attention, and suck it dry for all your efforts. These people may feel that is worth at first with the emotional investment, but will be without power and its many problems still unresolved. His thirst for your love can never be satisfied if you are determined to stay feeling like a victim.
can offer support to those who need it, give a listening ear to a friend who struggle or a stranger, but note when his efforts begin to be redundant or when their calls for help start feeling more like competing for attention. The more attention you give to your problems, less resolution will not be.
is not their responsibility to solve the problems of other people, especially when people really do not want their problems solved. They want to be pitied. It’s healthy to know when to go! When you feel that ozone resources, offer their sympathies and out of the situation. There is nothing mean about refusing to participate in the drama of another person.
4. Back to nature
a respite from all the others is needed. Their chaotic energies can be difficult to tune out, to take a one evening, weekend, or even an hour for you and go to a quiet place. Let the many voices of nature replaced the chatter of the mind of the modern world. Note the simplicity of the natural world, lack of motivation, the coexistence of all things, plants, animals and soil.
meditate and breathe deeply. Focus on filling your body with fresh oxygen and elevating mood and when you return to your daily routine, you will feel less able to absorb the negativity of others and refreshed.
5. Remember who is responsible for TE
You are the only one who has something to say about how he feels. So you let influence your thoughts and emotions that are 100% responsible and if any aspect of your happiness is out of balance, they have the ability to correct it. More powerful than any other person is your own perception of yourself, unless you choose to trade away the power for approval.
Once you choose to be responsible for your feelings, freed from the influence of others. When you are confident of what you are and how you want to feel, it is much more difficult for others to throw you off balance.
Take control of positivity in your life and make deliberate decisions. Choose situations that enhance their energy and maintain the kind of company that just adds to what you are. Love yourself enough to say “no” wherever it is justified, and stay away from environments that do not serve. You are responsible for your life experience. It is for you and it’s great!
