  1. Maggie, our pitbull, has had kidney problems lately. Friday night I crawled into bed and she had peed all over our bed. Memory foam mattresses are like giant sponges and once they get wet, the smell is awful. We had a really expensive mattress with a really expensive allegedly waterproof cover on it. We cut it into pieces with a razor knife so we could throw it out. The smell was disgusting. We bought a new cheap mattress and brand new waterproof cover. She peed in it again. Now, I have to lock her out of our bedroom at night. I know this sounds stupid to 99.8% of you, but I cried all night about not being able to let her sleep with me. They have both slept with us since they were puppies. I feel like I have failed her cause I can’t fix her. I don’t know how you parents do it. I couldn’t handle kids, of that I am sure.

"30 traits of an Empath:
1. Knowing: Empaths just know stuff, without being told. It’s a knowing that goes way beyond intuition or gut feelings, even though that is how many would describe the knowing. The more attuned they are the stronger this gift becomes.
2. Being in public places can be overwhelming: Places like shopping malls, supermarkets or stadiums where there are lots of people around can fill the empath with turbulently vexed emotions that are coming from others.
3. Feeling others emotions and taking them on as your own: This is a huge one for empaths. To some they will feel emotions off those near by and with others they will feel emotions from those a vast distance away, or both. The more adept empath will know if someone is having bad thoughts about them, even from great distance.
4. Watching violence, cruelty or tragedy on the TV is unbearable: The more attuned an empath becomes the worse it is and may make it so they eventually have to stop watching TV and reading newspapers altogether.
5. You know when someone is not being honest: If a friend or a loved one is telling you lies you know it (although many empaths try not to focus on this because knowing a loved one is lying can be painful). Or if someone is saying one thing but feeling/thinking another, you know.
6. Picking up physical symptoms off another: An empath will almost always develop the ailments off another (colds, eye infections, body aches and pains) especially those they’re closest to, somewhat like sympathy pains.
7. Digestive disorders and lower back problems: The solar plexus chakra is based in the centre of the abdomen and it’s known as the seat of emotions. This is where empaths feel the incoming emotion of another, which can weaken the area and eventually lead to anything from stomach ulcers to IBS (too many other conditions to list here). Lower back problems can develop from being ungrounded (amongst other things) and one, who has no knowledge of them being an empath, will almost always be ungrounded.
8. Always looking out for the underdog: Anyone whose suffering, in emotional pain or being bullied draws an empath’s attention and compassion.
9. Others will want to offload their problems on you, even strangers: An empath can become a dumping ground for everyone else’s issues and problems, which, if they’re not careful can end up as their own.
10. Constant fatigue: Empaths often get drained of energy, either from energy vampires or just taking on too much from others, which even sleep will not cure. Many get diagnosed with ME.
11. Addictive personality: Alcohol, drugs, sex, are to name but a few addictions that empaths turn to, to block out the emotions of others. It is a form of self protection in order to hide from someone or something.
12. Drawn to healing, holistic therapies and all things metaphysical: Although many empaths would love to heal others they can end up turning away from being healers (even though they have a natural ability for it), after they’ve studied and qualified, because they take on too much from the one they are trying to heal. Especially if they are unaware of their empathy. Anything of a supernatural nature is of interest to empaths and they don’t surprise or get shocked easily. Even at the revelation of what many others would consider unthinkable, for example, empaths would have known the world was round when others believed it was flat.
13. Creative: From singing, dancing, acting, drawing or writing an empath will have a strong creative streak and a vivid imagination.
14. Love of nature and animals: Being outdoors in nature is a must for empaths and pets are an essential part of their life.
15. Need for solitude: An empath will go stir-crazy if they don’t get quiet time. This is even obvious in empathic children.
16. Gets bored or distracted easily if not stimulated: Work, school and home life has to be kept interesting for an empath or they switch off from it and end up daydreaming or doodling.
17. Finds it impossible to do things they don’t enjoy: As above. Feels like they are living a lie by doing so. To force an empath to do something they dislike through guilt or labelling them as idle will only serve in making them unhappy. It’s for this reason many empaths get labelled as being lazy.
18. Strives for the truth: This becomes more prevalent when an empath discovers his/her gifts and birthright. Anything untruthful feels plain wrong.
19. Always looking for the answers and knowledge: To have unanswered questions can be frustrating for an empath and they will endeavour to find an explanation. If they have a knowing about something they will look for confirmation. The downside to this is an information overload.
20. Likes adventure, freedom and travel: Empaths are free spirits.
21. Abhors clutter: It makes an empath feel weighed down and blocks the flow of energy.
22. Loves to daydream: An empath can stare into space for hours, in a world of their own and blissfully happy.
23. Finds routine, rules or control, imprisoning: Anything that takes away their freedom is debilitating to an empath even poisoning.
24. Prone to carry weight without necessarily overeating: The excess weight is a form of protection to stop the negative incoming energies having as much impact.
25. Excellent listener: An empath won’t talk about themselves much unless it’s to someone they really trust. They love to learn and know about others and genuinely care.
26. Intolerance to narcissism: Although kind and often very tolerant of others, empaths do not like to be around overly egotistical people, who put themselves first and refuse to consider another’s feelings or points of view other than their own.
27. The ability to feel the days of the week: An empath will get the ‘Friday Feeling’ if they work Fridays or not. They pick up on how the collective are feeling. The first couple of days of a long, bank holiday weekend (Easter for example) can feel, to them, like the world is smiling, calm and relaxed. Sunday evenings, Mondays and Tuesdays, of a working week, have a very heavy feeling.
28. Will not choose to buy antiques, vintage or second-hand: Anything that’s been pre-owned carries the energy of the previous owner. An empath will even prefer to have a brand new car or house (if they are in the financial situation to do so) with no residual energy.
29. Sense the energy of food: Many empaths don’t like to eat meat or poultry because they can feel the vibrations of the animal (especially if the animal suffered), even if they like the taste.
30. Can appear moody, shy, aloof, disconnected: Depending on how an empath is feeling will depend on what face they show to the world. They can be prone to mood swings and if they’ve taken on too much negative will appear quiet and unsociable, even miserable. An empath detests having to pretend to be happy when they’re sad, this only adds to their load (makes working in the service industry, when it’s service with a smile, very challenging) and can make them feel like scuttling under a stone.
If you can say yes to most or all of the above then you are most definitely an empath.”

Since so many of the readings I’ve been doing seems to indicate some of you guys are empaths and just had no idea what that meant, I’ve decided to collect this list with some of the most common traits, for you to finally understand that you are not alone and your feelings are perfectly “normal” ;) Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.
Also, you can check the post with Essencial Practices for Empaths, to find out more on how to deal with your gift ;)

    omgersh, i’m an empath.

    i think i am as well!

    Holy shit. This gave me goosebumps. I identify with almost every point listed.

  3. So far at work this week we have had:

    • Flooring removed for two days by persons using super loud and obnoxious air tools
    • Concrete floors drilled for termite treatment
    • Concrete floors sanded to prep for new tile
    • New tile being installed by the loudest people on the planet
    • An electrical crew of 4 with 178 ladders in our ceilings
    • An alarm company who disabled our internet for one whole day
    • Power outages
    • Copier/Printer that went tits up
    • The unit above us is having new flooring installed and they are scraping the floors right above my head
    • All locks being rekeyed right here in our office with the loudest key cutter I have ever heard

    My office looks like a fucking obstacle course. I have my door closed and my ears are still bleeding. I can’t hear to answer the phones. I can’t concentrate on work. I feel a little teensy bit RAGEY. I am on my second gigantic cup of coffee and I feel like I could Hulk smash everything right now. 

  4. Was a motherfucker.

  5. Vacation. Ahhhhhhhhh.

    Vacation. Ahhhhhhhhh.

  6. We went to the mountains this weekend. Picked apples and bought the worlds biggest cabbage. Coming home is always bittersweet.

    • I have a tickle in the back of my throat that is making me want to punch everything. Fucking allergies.
    • Finding out that someone you look up to is a complete shitwad is disappointing. I find myself holding back from people because I know at some point they are going to try to fuck me over and I just don’t want to deal with it anymore.
    • I bought the 2 year old nephew a drum set for his birthday. Mostly so he would enjoy it but some of it was just to irritate his parents. Ok, mostly to irritate his parents. Guess what his new favorite toy is?
    • We are supposed to go out of town this weekend (finally!) and I have ALL of the paranoia that something is going to happen to keep us from going. It’s really harshing me out. 
    • We almost bought a Jeep on Sunday but the guy backed out. I have always wanted a Jeep. 
    • Dude told me I am not “your average woman”. This little phrase pissed me off more than you can imagine. Fuck you and your fucking stereotypes.
