Are you an overgiver?

Apr 20, 2022
Your body will tell you when you're overgiving


Empaths often get overwhelmed because we have a tendency to OVERGIVE. 

So I thought I'd leave you with a bit of encouragement today. 

If you could give ONE piece of encouragement for all to hear, what would it be? 

✨ Here's mine: small acts of service are more natural than overgiving. 

Here's why: 

  • Giving from your heart creates radiance around you.
  • Overgiving is exhausting. You'll feel it in your body
  • Small acts of service will leave you feeling like there's a spark of light that went off inside you.

How do you know that you're *NOT* overgiving? 

  •  It feels natural.
  • There's not any drama associated with your action.
  • Your body signals and energy level will tell you that you've given just the right amount. 

Small acts of service can look like this: 

  • Holding the door open for someone even when you're in a hurry. 
  • Smiling at a stranger. 
  • Give your friend or partner a compliment. 

Your action step: 


Get out your journal and start writing. Answer these questions...

  1. What does overgiving feel like in my body?  
  2. What happens when I overgive?  
  3. What small act of service can I do today that will leave me feeling light?
