Empath Fact: Some People will Dislike You for being too Quiet or Standoffish in a Social Setting

Someone taking a dislike to another is a completely normal and acceptable part of life. We are all different and there will always be some people we do not get along with, or who do not get along with us, however do you know that some people will take an automatic dislike to an empath simply because you are being too quiet, or too standoffish in a social setting.

Empaths tend to detach when we start to feel overloaded in social situations, especially if there is a lot going on, a lot of noise, stimuli and/or a crowd of people. We may get quiet or seem a bit standoffish and many around us can wrongly interpret our behavior as being snobbish. Those around us who are more insecure in nature can become offended and take our quietness as a form of disrespect and in return, take a dislike towards us, or at the very least, comment behind our backs. Because others don’t feel what an Empath feels, it is difficult for them to understand.

My advice is to make appearances at events and places that you feel comfortable with and don’t feel that you need to stay until the very end. Also, protect your energy prior to going to a social gathering and re-protect yourself as the event goes on. You may also find that certain crystals help you. I find that Black Tourmaline is helpful for protecting my energy and that selenite works well for me for cleansing my energy. (Some people suggest using amethyst for energy protection, but I found that just drew more “stuff” in for me as amethyst assist with intuition.) You can work with Archangel Michael to help you to shield. You can also set intentions before going to gatherings and events. I use something like: “Please only allow me to absorb any energies that I am meant to heal or to take on.” (You can use what works best for you.)
