It’s quite natural to pay attention to things that might hurt us: it’s a survival reflex.
However, this survival reflex can turn into a state of “hyper vigilance” where we’re always on the lookout for negative emotions. We start to see them everywhere, and expected them all the time.
Feeling safe is such a powerful state of being for an Empath. But it’s so difficult to achieve when we feel surrounded by a sea of threatening negative emotions.
Developing a sense of safety does not come from controlling the outside circumstances of our lives, but from nurturing positive feelings inside of our own psyche. If we can feel safe even when we sense that someone is angry, we have truly conquered this destructive pattern.
