05/12/2017 | eaglespi | Leave a comment Often to avoid anticipated disappointed friends and families, Empaths and other Sensitive Souls, put on their ugly Christmas sweater and join in the festivities… even when what they would much prefer is a quiet night at home in flannel pjs watching an old classic, meditating or perhaps making a gift for a loved one. It is flawed thinking, however, that if we arrive drained, dissatisfied and deceptive that we could possibly be in right relationship with anyone else because we are already being false to ourselves. And nobody really likes a phony, especially another sensitive soul. “How a person seems to show up for us is intimately connected to how we choose to show up for them.” Marianne Williamson, Return to Love What we truly “owe” to our loved ones is being present and connected. This is why taking time for self-care is so important. By loving and honouring yourself, you are able to love unconditionally anyone placed on your path. Holiday Tip: Recognize that those who love you the most really feel better when you are your most Authentic Self. Do not drain your energy by holding masks in place this December. Instead, let your yes and your no be truthful. Your energy will expand and your relationships will deepen.
