Ask Dr. Orloff

How can a non-empath live with an empathic spouse?

Question: Dr. Orloff,

What tips, advice and information resources can you suggest for those of us non-empaths who live with an empathic spouse?
Thanks,
Mike
Richmond, VA

Answer: Mike,

What a loving question! In The Ecstasy of Surrender I discuss what the signs are of a relationship empath. Most important you need to give your spouse the alone time he/she needs, have discussions about how long he/she feels comfortable staying in social situations (empaths get burned out and overstimulated with too much people-contact), and encourage your spouse to set limits with you or others if he/she needs to be quiet and alone. Also spend a lot of time in nature. Empaths love nature!
Best,
Judith
