Taking on others stress and emotions is not helping them.

Taking on others stress and emotions is not helping them.


I’m Dana Pharant and this is your inner
dominatrix power pro tip for today. I have said this so many times in so
many workshops and it bears repeating because apparently there
are still people doing this. What is it hanging on to
other people’s emotional crap, bullshit and judgments. Yes,
all of that. Here’s the thing. What I find is that these people who
identify as empathic and I would identify as a high level empath, the people who identify as empass end up
feeling like they need to take stuff on for people in order to help them, especially those in any of
the helping professions. The thing is is that it’s actually a
rather terrible idea and here’s why. Imagine that each of us, our lives are like jigsaw puzzles and we
each have our own jigsaw puzzle to put together. You’re the only
one that can put it together, which means you need
to have all the pieces, which means that if somebody
else is hanging on to pieces
of your jigsaw puzzle, you can’t finish it. Okay, so
let’s try and turn that around. If you are the person
hanging onto people’s crap, you are hanging on to some of their
pieces of their jigsaw puzzle, which is thereby preventing them from
putting their own puzzle together. So you’re actually being a mean, entitled, selfish bitch. There you
go. Hard facts. Okay. Hopefully that shakes it loose and allows
you to start to get out of the habit of taking on other people’s emotions, bullshit and baggage so that you can
be free to follow what works for you. All right, That’s your inner
dominatrix moment. I’m Dana Pharant.
