Ask Dr. Orloff

Do highly sensitive people get energized in the country and out in nature?

Question: Dear Dr. Orloff,

I think I am an Empath and getting more like one all the time. Would you suggest living in the country? I seem to "soak" up Nature's healing energy and love it. I am single and am wary of relationships...is this normal for an Empath? I often feel too sensitive for this world. Life for me is painful.
Thanks,
Ian


Answer: Dear Ian,

Thank you for your question. Empaths typically love to be out in nature and get revitalized by the quiet and beauty. It's a wonderful place for sensitive people to live. Cities often drain empaths if they don't practice the important centering and protection techniques I discuss in Emotional Freedom. In relationships, empaths must learn to set clear limits and boundaries and have their own space. Then relationships can be healthy, possible, and fun! Please read the section on empaths in Emotional Freedom about relationships.
All the best,
Judith
