Why empaths prefer to be single than to be forgiven
Being single is a blessing for some people and a curse for others. Although most of us want a meaningful and lasting relationship, some prefer to be single and enjoy the associated independence and freedom. This is especially true for empaths.
Although empaths are known to be sensitive, intuitive, selfless and compassionate people who can develop deep connections, most of them prefer to stay single. Why is that?
One reason is that empathy and relationships can often be the perfect recipe for disaster. Empaths have the innate ability to understand others. They can easily absorb and be influenced by the energies, emotions, thoughts, and actions of the people they are with.
This makes relationships deeper and more complicated for them. They can absorb their partner’s energy and vibrations and feel overwhelmed, anxious, overworked and exhausted. Empaths often consciously avoid relationships because they are afraid of getting too involved with the relationship and consuming it.
EMPATHY AND RELATIONSHIPS
Every empath is sensitive to the emotions and energies that surround it, whether from humans, animals or anything else. Empaths can not only intuitively understand other people’s thoughts and feelings, but can also understand their mental, physical and emotional state. When they open their hearts, external energies can easily penetrate into their own and merge with them.
Empaths often feel overwrought and tired because they are strongly tuned to vibrations and energy, especially when they are picked up by someone they love and are interested in. This can lead to a number of complexity in a romantic relationship.
In addition, empaths need a lot of personal freedom, independence and time to recharge and strengthen themselves, which may be difficult for their partners to understand. Highly sensitive empaths often give the relationship much more than they receive, and this can lead them to feel emotionally bankrupt at some point.
LOVE IS NEVER EASY
Understanding people is an easy task for empaths thanks to their highly coordinated intuitive senses. You can easily decipher the motivations, emotions, and intentions of others. However, when they are emotionally connected to someone, their intuitive abilities often fail and they ignore their instincts and inner voice. Perhaps this is one of the main reasons why empaths often get into dysfunctional and toxic relationships and develop unhealthy relationships with their partner.
And that’s why they become easy targets for narcissists who take advantage of the empathic’s caring and healing nature. If they fall victim to a narcissistic partner, they may find it difficult to trust their own instincts. They begin to doubt their own intuitive abilities and tend to accept their partner’s version of the truth.
RELATIONSHIPS CAN BE TOXIC
Empaths are extraordinarily compassionate souls with extraordinary abilities for forgiveness, acceptance, and understanding and can often give toxic partners too many opportunities. In this way, the empath creates more space for the abusive behavior of the toxic partner. In the long run, this can lead to depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem.
As a natural healer, empaths are usually attracted to people who have emotional problems and need healing. When they absorb their partner’s emotional pain, empaths begin to classify themselves in the low vibration in which their partner is. In this way, empaths become dependent on their partner.
You will feel worthy and important and feel needed. This is the perfect foundation for an unhealthy, disjointed relationship in which the emotional, mental, and physical health of both partners can be compromised. In the end, the empath gives more than he should, while the other partner almost completely consumes his energy. As a result, the empath feels emotionally burned out, drained and tired.
EMPATHY AND SEPARATIONS
Absorbing both high and low high vibrational energies means that empaths can be easily attached to someone and completely separated from someone. You can easily separate from relationships and emotions once you have the necessary distance. The moment they end a relationship, empaths lose connection regardless of how strong the bond was before. You can easily let go without feeling negative emotions.
Although it can appear cold and heartless, it is mostly instinctive and unintentional. This is one of the main reasons why empaths prefer to remain single and stay away from relationships. You know how intoxicating and contagious a person’s energy can be.
EMPATHS ARE VERY EMOTIONAL
Relationships almost always go wrong for empaths. Whether they’re too sensitive, too emotional, or tied to a toxic partner, empaths often don’t experience the kind of love and relationship they want in life.
They are usually very vulnerable and think with their hearts. When an empath shares his deepest feelings, he is honest and open. But their partners often feel uncomfortable with such brutal honesty and depth in communication. Because they cannot communicate their truest and darkest feelings with their partners, empaths withdraw and choose to keep their thoughts and feelings to themselves.
As a result, they become broken, bitter and discouraged. Most empaths eventually lose hope of ever meeting their soul mates. Emotional trauma, abuse, and toxic relationship experiences are often the main reasons that an empath wants to stay single instead of being in an unfulfilled relationship.
CONFIDENCE AS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS
When an empath realizes that he is absorbing external energies and that low vibrational energies can cause him to feel drained and tired, empaths consciously enter into relationships more carefully. Their self-confidence will help them ward off energies that can conflict with their own vibrations.
Self-protection and self-love can enable empaths to maintain their energy levels mentally, emotionally and spiritually. If they refuse to absorb lower vibrational energy, they can create a healthy and harmonious life. An empath urgently needs to give himself time, because he has to heal himself before he can think of others, especially after a broken relationship.
