Have you ever found a book that you wished you had read years ago? A book that would have saved you a great deal of grief, overwhelm, and confusion? A book that would have given you wise advice and important life strategies? Well, I found just that book.
It is The Empath's Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People, written by the psychotherapist and empath Judith Orloff. If you are a highly sensitive person, or even an empath, this book is for you. Let me say that more forcefully -- YOU NEED TO GET THIS BOOK.
Far from airy-fairy, Orloff understands completely what it is to be a sensitive person or empath in the modern world. She sprinkles various checklists throughout the book for the reader to measure where they are on the empath spectrum, whether the reader is a physical or emotional empath, coping mechanisms of the empath (including addictive behaviors), how much of an empath the reader is regarding food or relationships, whether the reader's child is an empath, and what kind of intuitive the reader is. I found that very insightful.
Dear Empath, if you want to do more than just cope through the day, get this book. You won't regret it.
