Empathetic

The more ah look, the more am realizing just how much of other people's issues am experiencing first hand. On top of my own.

So aside from taking care of myself better in general, ah really need to try and detach from these problems, and burn some things out of my system. Can anyone suggest anything in particular to help with that?

Ah don't want to become the brunt of other people's problems. Would rather help them get over their own. Which empathy can help with to an extent, in that it helps you understand the problems. But right now what's really needed is a proper cleansing to get these issues out of my head, and help work with them from a better vantage point, mya.

I think the word is empathic, not empathetic...

And I don't know if there's any one way to draw the line between others' problems and one's own. I've noticed that any person with even a scrap of spirituality will immediately set off to try to heal the world. But people really aren't meant to do that; we aren't meant to live supporting and supported by a web of everyone else. It's better for everyone to be strong individually. Am I making sense? It made sense in my mind... >.

It might be, but I've known people who've seriously thought the word was empathetic and not empathic, so I made an assumption. I'm sorry if I've insulted anyone's intelligence. :p

Yep, it was a play on words.. :nod: That's how have come to think of my empathy, in the times where it is somewhat crippling me. Am not just empathic, am E-M-Pathetic. (sudden urge to create a character with the initials E.M. and last name based on the word 'pathetic' or '-pathy')

Anyways, in this case am just needing to detach myself from the empathies that have been driving me made lately.. :nod: And as far as 'healing' goes, tend to think of things as trying to tackle a problem at its source. In cases where the source of the problem refuses to be healed, than the source simply needs to be detached from the person experiencing the problem. :nod:

Kind of like trying to treat an illness.. try to fight it at the source. If the source resists treatment, surgically remove the tumor from the body.. ee, that's probably a pretty nasty analogy. Am crazy today tho', so is okay. :nod:
