The Anxious Empath: Anxiety And Other People’s Feelings

The Anxious Empath: Anxiety And Other People’s Feelings

Empaths are often anxious. Empathy is described as the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. All humans have the ability to empathize in moments of tragedy, even if they have not experienced a similar situation. However, empathy is an innate trait that is more acutely developed in certain members of the population (Intense Anxiety And The Highly Sensitive Person). Empaths are individuals who are unconsciously affected by other people’s moods, desires, thoughts, and energies.

It’s for this reason that there are often anxious empaths.

Managing Our Anxiety About Terrorist Attacks

Managing Our Anxiety About Terrorist Attacks

Managing our anxiety about terrorist attacks is hard. It’s so abhorrent and baffling that it’s difficult to get our minds around it. It’s extremely upsetting. Terrorist attacks in Western countries like France and the United States are a very recent phenomenon. Here in the West, we’re still adjusting to the fact that terrorism has become part of our experience, too. It’s no longer something that only happens in far-away places that we’ve never heard of, or know very little about. As we’re managing our own anxiety about terrorist attacks, we’re also having to learn how to discuss war and terrorism with our children.

They indicated that anxiety at work had caused them to exhibit some of the common signs of low self-esteem, including difficulty holding down a job, and becoming easily confused and forgetful.
