Life Strategies for Sensitive People
In this fascinating conversation I speak with New York Times best selling author of the Empaths Survival Guide, Dr. Judith Orloff we unpack the definition of what an empath is and the common but misunderstood traits of people who are empathic. Many people who experience the emotions of other people have been misdiagnosed with everything from depression to chronic fatigue. Her research at the UCLA psychiatric clinical faculty proving that the links between physical, emotional, and spiritual health can’t be ignored.
She reframes empathy as a gift and offers advice to individuals and parents of empaths. She also discusses the best jobs and ways to manage a cope in this world when you’re prone to taking on the emotions of others. We also turn things around and look at the advantages of being an empath. You can listen to our conversation here.
