I’m in the process of writing a guide for empaths, and one of the topics that comes up again and again in my practice is how Empaths tend to get stuck in drama. A drama can be created when we find ourselves acting or behaving as victims. Being a victim is a position of powerlessness, which then makes it hard to create the life we really want. We literally cannot manifest our dreams because the vibe we put out is all around helplessness. Instead, what we attract to us is a Rescuer (who tries to fix us or solve our problems for us, keeping us powerless) or we attract a Perpetrator (who picks on us, and makes us feel even more victimized). This can be a hugely vicious cycle. The way to get out of it is to catch yourself if you are blaming someone or circumstances for your emotional or mental state, and then put yourself back into a position of power by claiming responsiblity for your emotions and thoughts. For empaths this can be a challenge because we can identify so strongly with our emotions. The emotions are not the problem, however, our perspective around the circumstance at hand is. When we change the way we relate to the world, it automatically changes how it relates to us.
