A person who internalizes the emotions of others is someone with poor personal boundaries, and that's an unhealthy profile.

Such a person will always be riding a roller coaster of emotional reaction to external events and situations beyond one's own control.

Getting all worked up yourself isn't an indication that you care, it's an indication that you haven't mastered yourself, and haven't mastered stress management.

The best response to an irate person is to counter their affect with a calm and centered-ness within yourself.
 Quoting: DOT 2 DOT


I have to disagree with that because empathy doesn't choose sides when it comes to emotions and empathy is an invaluable character trait... What would you say about someone who is empathetic and naturally receptive of the emotional energies of those around him/her, even when it transpires in an indirect and subconscious manner? You can abstain from the drama all you want but negative energy is real and working in a negative environment can and will take its toll on you in one way or another whether you are a willful participant or not.

Imagine working in a positive, upbeat, and caring environment and saying that such circumstances have no effect on your mood whatsoever. That would be a rather difficult assertion to argue!
 Quoting: ANHEDONIC



I do this, took me forever to figure out which were my emotions, and which were other people's.

Being an empath isn't a psychological impairment, it's a gift. Just need to remember to release what you don't want.

Mastering your own energies in a negative environment is like empath boot camp. Harsh but necessary.

 Quoting: <>illusion<>


I spent the past 6 years in a undesirable work environment. I learned to cope with what want on there and distance myself from it as best I could. I am 5 months removed from that environment. I can tell you if I had to go back it would not be good for my well-being. Releasing negative energies or not, it is not a desirable position to be in and it will affect you in one way or another, if not directly, then indirectly. It's human nature to be affected by your environment. You only have so much conscious energy to expend each day, and spending too much time in a negative environment can stifle you and affect your vibratory rate. Aversion has a functional purpose. If something does not resonate with you, you distance yourself from it. That is natural.

What you say here is true.

You know what’s best for you.

And maybe when you are ready, even more mature, even stronger, you will go back and conquer whatever your problem is.

Re: ready to let go?
Well I’ve proved to myself that what you say here is not true.

My capacity to handle stressful and difficult situations whilst remaining unaffected has grown enormously.

Years of running away to mountaintops and peaceful locations did nothing for me other than provide temporary relief.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20064686


Just playing Devil's Advocate here:

If you would use adjectives as 'stressful' and 'difficult' to describe those situations, wouldn't that imply that those circumstances indeed have a negative energy associated with them. If you were unaffected then why utilize such adjectives to describe the circumstances? How can it be described as stressful if you are unaffected?

If you choose to expose yourself to those situations, that is your choice. There is nothing wrong with the conscious desire to not want to be surrounded by circumstances that one would characterize as 'stressful' and 'difficult'. Some people have put their time in and do not want to be around it any more because those environments do not resonate with one's level of consciousness anymore.

If a person was in an emotionally abusive relationship that carried negative energy, would we really believe that that individual should tolerate the environment, and learn to not let the negative behaviors affect that individual? Or would it be acceptable for that person to remove himself/herself from the negative environment? The answer here is readily apparent. Why do we hold ourselves to a different standard when it comes to our work environment? You don't have to sit there and learn to cope with it if you have the free will to remove yourself from an environment you do not find any reward in subjecting yourself to.

No problem here my friend. I am at peace with my emotions. Simply arguing the other side of the coin. We only have so much waking conscious energy to devote each day of our existence and we absolutely do not have to subject ourselves to negative environments when the free will exists for one to distance oneself from such exposure - especially when it comes to the work place. Being able to cope with and endure through 'hardship' is not a mandate to ignore your free will and natural instincts to distance yourself from undesirable environments.

Re: ready to let go?
I would never encourage someone to stay in a negative environment, that would be crazy. yes by all means, if you can get out then go, be free, find your happy space and don't look back. But as someone has all ready pointed out in this thread, there are certain kinds of trouble you can't run away from. What if you are diagnosed with cancer, or thrown in jail for life, or some other situation that you can't control? If your way of finding happiness is always to run from pain, then you will not be able to cope.

So if you find yourself stuck with something painful, and there is no way out, the way to stop suffering is just to let go. if you've got cancer, then let go of the idea that you need to be healthy with a long life ahead of you in order to be happy and at peace. That surrender to what is opens you up to the joys that are still available to you, even in the midst of your predicament. If you're in jail for the rest of your life, let go of the idea that freedom means walking through an open door out into the sunlight whenever you want. Freedom is in the mind, always. It can't be taken away from you.

Re: ready to let go?
but what I am talking about is letting go in a different way. what if you could put yourself back in the suit and tie, back in the soul-sucking drudgery of the office, washed over with the waves of negativity coming from your unhappy judgmental coworkers, your irate customers..... and instead of wanting to flee, all you did was laugh! What if you endured day after day of hell, and still went home with a smile on your face? What does it take to reach that plane of existence?

 Quoting: BOWMAN



Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn wrote this, in "The Gulag Archipelago" (which is a fantastic book about his experiences as a political prisoner in a Soviet hard labor camp). This bit is about how to endure and overcome the interrogation process:


"So what is the answer? How can you stand your ground when you are weak and sensitive to pain, when people you love are still alive, when you are unprepared?

What do you need to make you stronger than the interrogator and the whole trap?

From the moment you go to prison you must put your cozy past firmly behind you. At the very threshold, you must say to yourself: "My life is over, a little early to be sure, but there's nothing to be done about it. I shall never return to freedom. I m condemned to die - now or a little later. But later on, in truth, it will be even harder, and so the sooner the better. I no longer have any property whatsoever. For me those I love have died, and for them I have died. From today on, my body is useless and alien to me. Only my spirit and my conscience are precious and important to me."

Confronted by such a prisoner, the interrogation will tremble.

Only the man who has renounced everything can win that victory."



As grim as this passage is, it's speaking to the truth of letting go. Your attachments to things are not only a way to make you suffer, they also allow others to easily control you. If you have really let go of everything, then there is nothing in your spirit left to grab hold of that will force you to submit.
