Empath: Learning to Love Yourself

images (7)I don’t know if all Empath’s struggle with self love or if it is just me, but I definitely have an issue with loving myself.  It all sounds so silly when I actually put it into writing.  I mean, I will spring into action if someone asks me to do something for them, but if it is just for me well, I tend to procrastinate or not do it at all.  Why is that?  I mean, obviously I love myself, but why do I care more about helping others than actually helping myself?  Even the smallest of tasks can become a burden, for example cooking for myself.  Rather than making myself a nice meal each evening like I would do if I had someone there to cook for, I eat something quick and cheap and call it a night.  But, if I had someone to cook for then I would eagerly come home and begin preparing a scrumptious meal for the two of us.  I know, I know, that sounds ridiculous, but I promise you that it is so true.

And since I have been on my spiritual journey it has been bothering me that I do not give the same urgency to helping myself that I give to helping others.  Does anyone have any advice they can give me on being an Empath and learning to love yourself?  Please, I welcome all comments and suggestions.

Thanks!

  1. I can really relate to this post, i wrote an article regarding care that has many links to other sites that gives a lot of advice on managing self care. I’m currently trying to figure this one out as well but too much empathy isn’t a good thing, there needs to be a balance 🙂

  2. Yep, definitely relate to this, and feel it’s a real lesson to learn, before we can find true balance and fully awaken. I have low self worth, and am slowly improving this aspect of me by increasing self love and compassion, which will increase my love and compassion for the universe.
