This Is What It Means To Be Loved By An Empath

I can tell you are aching deep inside. I understand how hard it is for you to reach out and talk to me. I feel your pain in my heart. And all the anxiety and confusion. Everything that troubles you within is troubling me as well. I know there’s a reason for you being colder lately. It’s all part of your defense mechanism.

I feel the coldness and the distance between us like a most freezing winter. And all I want is to melt your emotions, take you there.

I know why you’ve said all those hurtful things to me. A wise man said this:

“When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.”

I feel you are struggling with something because I feel your soul so very close to mine. There’s an amazing energy drawing me towards you. It’s the energy of a kind heart who seems to have lost their way. Maybe out of fear, maybe because they’ve been through too much.

I know you can’t be hurt again and I know the fear of rejection or abandonment paralyzes you. I know you’re only craving for affection and for support. But you must allow yourself to be vulnerable with me. There is so much good in you and so much potential for love and commitment. Don’t waste them because of those walls you built. They’re safe but you can’t grow there. The pain won’t last. But what we have is not something transient.

I can feel all of these things because I love you. I love you and I see you. And I want all the heartache to cease.

Let me in so we can build something meaningful and maybe even start all over again. A bond that was sacred once can be sacred again.

This is what it means to be loved by an empath. An empath will absorb the pain and suffering of other people. But they can also absorb all the wonderful things that people are capable of: hoping, dreaming, joy and everlasting love. Show me you are there, listening.
