We're diving deep and discussing what types of energy vampires can slowly drain the energy out of our daily energy “bank account” I thought I’d give you a sneak peek.
Last week, I talked about the Space Invader Energy Vampire. If you missed it, I also created a blog post about it here:
Here's an interesting type of energy vampire that I think everyone has in common. The Victim. Yes - I know, we’ve all unintentionally settled into the victim mentality every now and then but we don’t want to live there.
I’m talking about the type of Energy Vampire Victim who is living in their “victimhood”.
As empaths, these energy vampires can really drain our energy and leave us feeling like we've absorbed all of their problems. We walk away feeling heavy, frustrated, and wondering what just happened to make us feel...
But, we keep on working. We all have todo lists, priorities, projects, and commitments. We keep working, thinking that we can dig ourselves out of this chaos by more work.
Why do we do this?
Society says, “tough it out”. Society rewards this behavior.
We celebrate overachievers who ignore their body signals.
This is incredibly harmful to HSP and Empaths.
We need ample downtime, quiet, and rest to thrive.
Fatigue is your voice of wisdom. It’s your body and your energy level telling you something. This is called listening to your body!
Take one compassionate action (baby step) for yourself.
