Honor your heart.

It's important to honor the way your heart feels. If you deny your emotions, they'll start to get away from you and you'll find yourself feeling a bit out of control. Honor how you feel.

Don't try to be a people pleaser.

The easiest way for an empath to feel stretched too thin is by having to be a people pleaser. Obviously you aren't going to be able to please everyone, so don't waste your energy. Do what you're going to do and with any luck, it'll make people in your life happy. Or it won't. Who cares? It's your life.

Consider your needs.

You should always consider your needs when dealing with other people, especially if you're an empath. Don't let others get in the way of what you need to do in life. It's okay to put yourself first.

Act confident.

Even if you aren't always, put up a front.
