Empaths are very sensitive to the emotions, moods and energies of others. This means they get stressed out by things that don’t bother less sensitive types.

Here are 6 things that leave Empaths feeling stressed out.

1. Incongruent behaviour

People pick up on more than just what other people say. We all interpret others based on their speech, actions, body language and energy. Empaths are particularly good at spotting when people’s words don’t match their body language or energy. This means that Empaths can find it very uncomfortable to be around people who are pretending to be something they are not. For example, when a person uses kind words, but their body language and energy seem to show impatience or anger, an Empath will feel this difference and find it disturbing and unsettling. This is why Empaths can usually spot liars easily, too. Dealing with people like this will leave them stressed out because they can’t trust them. If you find it hard to deal with people that give off contradictory vibes, then you are probably an empath.

2. Negativity

Empaths are, of course, not perfect. They too get in bad moods and sometimes behave badly. But they do try to be positive as much as they can. They do this because they know how easily emotions can be passed to others. If one person in a household or office is in a bad mood, it’s not long before everyone is in a bad mood. This transfer of energies can often affect Empaths more strongly as they are so quick to pick up on the emotions of others. For this reason, Empaths don’t like to be around people who are constantly negative or gossiping about others. Empaths would prefer to be around happy, positive people.

But of course, because they are sensitive to others’ needs, they find it hard to avoid people who need them. Empaths often attract negative people. This is because negative types know they will find a sympathetic ear to listen to their complaints. If you find dealing with negative people exhausting and that time spent with them leaves you in a low mood, then you are probably an Empath.

3. Aggressive behaviour

Empaths have a hard time dealing with aggressive behaviour, including yelling and screaming, slamming doors and of course any kind of violence. Obviously, most people do not like to be around people in an aggressive mood as it is uncomfortable for everyone. However, for Empaths, this kind of behaviour can feel worse because they tend to have very sensitive nervous systems. Being with angry people can cause their adrenaline levels to spike leaving them feeling anxious, jittery and seriously stressed out. If you find anger and aggression affect you in both an emotional and physical way, then you are probably an Empath.

4. Other people’s suffering

Empaths find it very hard to see other people suffering because they literally feel the pain of others. This can make it unbearable for them to see others in pain. Empaths cry easily and cannot just brush off the suffering of others. Watching a sad news story can affect them for hours afterwards and leave them feeling hopeless about the state of the world and why there is so much suffering and violence. If you find the suffering of others overwhelming, you are almost certainly an empath.
