During a Bible talk about empathy, I experienced a sudden feeling of panic because I already felt overwhelmed. My heart is open and I’m highly attuned to others' emotions. Often my heart literally hurts for the people I love. Have you ever felt heartbroken for what someone is going through? Maybe you’e wondered:
Is it possible to remain empathetic without losing one's sense of self? I did some research about empathy and discovered it is beyond just feeling someone’s pain.
This is the topic of the next few blog posts and my shares on social media for the month of June leading up to our July Masterclass and Workshop: Keys to Peace about maintaining balance and self-identity.
Here are some keys to peace and excerpts from some of my workshops for you to explore:
Maintaining Our Sense of Self
As individuals, we all possess unique values, beliefs, and experiences. By embracing and valuing these distinctive qualities, we make decisions that align with our core values and objectives. Many individuals in my social circle align their core values with their Creator. When we’re aware of and aligned with our core values, we remain authentic to ourselves and experience inner peace. This also allows us to communicate effectively with others, forming genuine connections and fostering long-lasting relationships.
Ensuring Personal Growth
Growth is an essential part of life. Personal growth helps us to learn new things, develop new skills, and gain new perspectives. When we focus on our personal growth, we become more self-aware and better able to navigate the challenges that life throws at us.
Staying grounded is essential for maintaining our balance amidst the stresses and demands of daily life. To achieve this, we must remain present in the moment, focus on the tasks at hand, and avoid being overwhelmed by external distractions. Practices like contemplative meditation or spending time in nature can help us. Additionally, using Aroma Reset helps us identify our reactions to different situations and work to change any thought patterns hindering our peace.
Let Go of What We Can’t Control
One of the hardest things to do in life is to let go of situations we can't control. So often we hold onto things that are beyond our control, causing us unnecessary stress and anxiety. Failing to detach from circumstances beyond our control results in endless rumination. We can only control our own actions and reactions. Although it can be difficult, it's crucial for our mental and emotional health to learn to let go of situations that are outside of our control. My top tool for letting go is Aroma Reset.
Building Healthy Relationships
Healthy relationships provide us with support, encouragement, and a sense of belonging. It's important to surround ourselves with people who uplift us and make us feel good about ourselves. Building healthy relationships involves being honest and open with others, actively listening to their needs, and showing compassion.
Balancing Empathy with Self Care
It's vital to show empathy and care to others, but we also need to know when to step back from a situation and prioritize our own needs. This can mean setting limits, saying no when necessary and making time for self-care activities such as exercise, reading, or spending quiet time alone to recharge.
Maintaining our own identity, ensuring personal growth, remaining grounded, building healthy relationships, letting go of situations we can't control, and balancing empathy with self-care are all essential components of a happy and fulfilling life. By focusing on these key points, we can empower ourselves and create a life that feels supportive, nurturing, and comforting. Join us for our July Masterclass and learn more about the topic here:
