Giving TOO MUCH? Empathy & Compassion Can TURN TOXIC!
In healthy situations, you would never think that empathy and compassion could have downsides, right? When you're with a Hijackal, a narcissistic, or other endlessly difficult person, you can find that you've stepped over into some strange land where empathy and compassion cause you to suffer. SO IMPORTANT to recognize when too much is too much and it's hurting you.
You'll also benefit from the tips in this episode to help you keep your empathy and compassion in balance. Game-changer!
It's a slow slipping away into taking care of the Hijackal's emotional demands and ignoring your own needs. You can lose yourself...even, abandon yourself. Listen in and avoid that. If you feel like you have already lost yourself, know that you can certainly come back from it, stronger. It takes work, and may be the best work of your life.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS EPISODE:
- Why too much empathy turns toxic and how
- The toxicity of enabling
- The problem of over-identifying with a Hijackal®
