Talking about empathy, it has to do with understanding other people’s emotions and feeling. Being an empath is a definite edge for building and maintaining good relationships with people. A good relationship is one where the parties involved are willing not just to talk about their problems, but are eager to share their possessions. A lot of people view a good relationship as one that never lacks giving.

Being an empath, you already have the potentials of making a good relationship because of your ability to feel one’s emotions and readiness to offer help even when it is not convenient for you. Research made it clear that being an empath is partly innate and partly learned. Therefore, one who is not an empath can learn to become one and even a better empath.

Nevertheless, in this article, we are to consider ways to become a stronger empath; this makes it clear that one can move from being an empath who is often overwhelmed to becoming a better empath.

Let us look at seven ways to become a stronger empath.

Learn to let go(Stronger empath)

Not letting go in haste is seen as a pro for the empath, but when viewed from a different angle, it is a massive con for the empath. Empaths do not know how to let go, although the relationship hurts or when the situation is getting beyond them. They do not just want to let it go. They try to give even beyond what they can offer to make sure they get a problem solved.

The funny thing here is that even when it is not their problems, as a matter of fact, most times, it is not even their problems. Likewise, empaths do not let people go even when the relationship is toxic, they try to find a way to adjust to accommodate the wrong person, and this leads them to burn out or get drained. If one must become a better empath, he or she must learn how to let go of things that bring about bad energy, or ideas that drain the energy. This is a major rule to stick to in order to become better and stay happy and stable as an empath.

Grow self-Understanding.

Virtually all the empaths have this habit of feeling that they are the burden bearers of other people. Of course, it is good to care for others, but when you do not know how to manage it, very soon, it might just turn to be a challenge you cannot surmount easily.
If I should be blunt, the truth is that other people’s challenges and problems are not yours. When you tend to care beyond what is required, it might even turn to bring you bad rather than good.

You must start focusing more on your needs rather than that of other people. This is because if you keep thinking of other people ahead of yourself, very soon when your own needs will arise, you might not have the energy to attend to them. And to make it worse, nobody will be there for you because they believe you are self-sufficient and reliant, this is because you solve other people’s problems a lot. Therefore, they believe you have the solutions to all your problems.

In other words, you must develop self-understanding and acknowledge your own needs ahead of other people’s needs.

Spend enough time meditating.

No matter how you want to escape having thoughts about others, the truth is that you cannot make away with it. It is your nature, although you can apply some measures to control it. Caring for people takes a lot of mental strength, therefore as an empath, you need your mind to always be in the correct state at every point in time. To achieve this, you need to meditate on good and edifying things that will help your mind always to stay refreshed.

Follow your intuition(Stronger empath)

Empaths tend to attract the wrong people, and by so doing, they waste their resources and strength on them. They do not deserve the treat offered by empaths. Therefore, it is expedient that empaths follow their intuition while making friends. The truth is that an empath’s intuition makes he or she feel it when they meet or communicate with the right or wrong person. But when it is the wrong person, they ignore their intuition believing that everyone is kind just like they are, This eventually makes them run into bad people who get to use them and abandon them when they get all they want, This leaves the empath disappointed at the end of the day.

Learn to set healthy boundaries.

If you are to become a stronger empath, This is what you cannot afford to do without if you want to become a better empath. One problem empaths have is that they do not know how to set boundaries because they do not want to get anybody offended. Setting the border should not just be for yourself, but equally, for the person you are relating with, don’t just get yourself involved in everything about someone all in the name of caring. Learn to define some issues that are too personal and do not get involved in such matters.

Check and deal with your biases.

If you think you do not have biases as an empath, you are not honest to yourself. Empaths are also biased based on some physical factors such as; age, race, gender, This already says it all, some male empaths shows affections towards females, some empaths lookout for only older people, and so on. If you are trapped with any bias, you must deal with it thoroughly and learn to be fair enough to anybody as the need arises.

Love yourself(Stronger empath)

Loving yourself does not necessarily mean you should turn to a narcissist or a selfish being. But then, you have to answer this question, What is the purpose of your life? The first and primary is to take care of yourself. You have to show yourself love a lot of times, go hiking, go on a vacation, prepare an exceptional meal, go to the cinema, stroll, buy yourself new clothes and wears.This even allows you to do good for people because you have taken care of your self.
