Every Empath Will Try To Hide These 10 Things From You

Do you suspect that you or someone close to you may be an empath?

Empaths are able to make special connections with the people around them. An empath can sense when they are needed.

Many times, an empath is the person in your life who is sometimes called "too sensitive".

Empaths are very special and if you have on in your life then you can consider yourself lucky. However, empaths do need to be treated with special care.

First, let's explain what an empath is. Being an empath is not about having the ability to feel sympathy. Sympathy is when we feel a sense of care and concern for other people.

When we sympathize with someone, it means we feel compassion for them and hope that their situation improves.

Empathy is the ability to understand the feelings of others. When someone is an empath, it means they have an especially deep understanding and connection to the feelings of people around them.

Empaths can feel other people's feeling almost as if they were their own. There is research showing that an empath's brain is wired that way.

Scientists have identified a specialized group of brain cells that are tied to the ability to empathize. When someone is an empath, it means these cells are especially sensitive.

Empaths should look out for people who are sociopaths, psychopaths, and narcissists. In terms of psychology, these people have the opposite traits as an empath.

These people are not able to feel empathy the way that normal people do.

Empaths like to protect themselves from being spotted, for a variety of reasons.

They can be concerned about who they make connections with and how emotionally difficult these connections might become.

Since empaths experience the emotions of other people almost as strongly as they experience their own emotions, they need to be very careful of the emotions they will encounter.

Here are some of the ways you can spot an empath...

1. Sensitivity

Empaths may try to conceal the fact that they are so sensitive. They do this in part so that they maybe seen as a source of strength for those around them.

Empaths don't want to be a burden, so they hide their own emotions.

2. Ability to Absorb Emotions

An empath can feel happy when those around her are happy and down when those around her are down.

Empaths are so emotionally connected to others that they experience the emotions of others almost as if they were their own.

3. Introversion

Since empaths are constantly in touch with the emotions of the people they are with, they may avoid contact in order to get a break.

Spending some time alone means the empath can have some time to take a break and recover from feeling emotionally drained.

4. Connection to Nature

If you know someone who has a deep desire to spend time in nature, that person could be an empath.

There is nothing like the sense of happiness and peace that humans feel when we're in a beautiful outdoor area.

Empaths feel this even more strongly than most people do. Nature can help an empath recharge their batteries with the positive feelings that they get from spending time in the outdoors.

5. Ability to Detect Lies

Empaths have a special ability to see through other people.

One of the ways this manifests itself is in an empaths ability to detect lies.

An empath can easily detect lies because they are able to read a person's emotions and true intentions.

6. Giving Too Much

Empaths spend a lot of time and energy tending to other people's needs. This can leave an empath with a lot of negative emotions.

Empaths feel a deep need to help others, but sometimes while they're helping others they may be harming themselves emotionally.

When an empath tries to retreat so they can recharge, they can sometimes feel like they're being selfish.

Empaths need to remember to take care of themselves even though they may not be used to putting themselves first.

7. Heightened Intuition

Naturally, empaths are very connected to their own feelings.

An empath will trust their gut feelings to make important decisions. Empaths have a sense of being connected to the universe and are able to use intuition to guide them on a daily basis.

8. Tendency to Get Stressed Out

Because empaths feel all emotions very strongly, it can be easy for an empath to become overwhelmed.

In addition, having too many tasks at a time can also make an empath feel inundated. This can be very stressful for an empath.

9. Easy to Take Advantage Of

A manipulative person can easily take advantage of an empath.

This is because manipulators are able to spot empaths and use their empathic abilities against them in order to get what they want.

A manipulator knows what buttons to push with an empath in order to achieve their goals.

Empaths need to be wary when they get the sense that they are being manipulated by someone.

10. Ability to Love Deeply

As with all of the emotions they experience, an empath will feel love very deeply.

This love extends from their spouse or partner to their family and to all of the people in their lives.

Empaths make the people in their lives feel extremely loved and cared for.

Empaths also have a strong appreciation for society in general.

Empaths are very special people who need to be appreciated and protected.

If you have an empath in your life, give them the time and emotional space they need to recharge.

Understand that they are not being anti-social when they take some alone time.

It can be difficult and exhausting to go through life as an empath, but empaths also have a special gift that should be treated with care and respect.

These are the 5 signs of a fake friend

The world is comprised of a variety of people. Knowing how to spot these people is important. Unfortunately, many of us already know that some of these people aren't as genuine as others.

It can be hard when you find out that a friend, colleague, or even a family member is fake, especially when it comes to how they interact with you.

Luckily, there are signs that fake people inevitably display throughout their lives that can help you discern who around you is genuine, and who isn't.

Take a look at these five signs to figure out who in your life is being fake.

1. They Try Hard to Be Liked

Fake people try incredibly hard to be liked by the people around them because they're already aware of how fake they truly are.

This is one of the most obvious signs a fake person will display because they'll be working harder than most when it comes to interacting with others, or simply out in public.

You can always tell who your genuine friends are because they'll simply be themselves when around other people.

2. They Crave Attention

Fake people can be spotted because they have to be the center of attention. Not only do they work hard in order to be liked, but they also have to be in the spotlight more than necessary.

If you have someone in your life who can't let others take the spotlight, it may be a good indication that they aren't very genuine.

3. They're Total Show Offs

We already know that fake people crave attention, but because of that, they also show off way more than they should.

Everyone can be a show off at times, but someone who shows off no matter what they're doing is probably fake.

Don't get confused if you have a friend who is naturally good at a number of things; people who are fake tend to advertise, but genuine people won't.

Being good at something doesn't make you a show off.

4. They Gossip All the Time

Gossiping is natural, and we've all let ourselves vent about someone else from time to time. However, fake people will gossip about a lot of people, all the time.

Fake people want to draw negative attention away from themselves because they can't have anyone knowing who they really are.

If you know someone who gossips more than most, say something to stop them and see how they react.

5. They Only Criticize

Another indication you're dealing with a fake person is that they're overly critical.

Fake people can't easily express praise or admiration for other people because they need to look great. If they praise someone else, then that's praise they don't have for themselves.
