As an empath I am very much aware of what others think and how their filters work. To the point where – even when there’s no one around! – I end up getting caught in those filters.
If left to my own devices, I will postpone unpleasant stuff indefinitely.
Yeah, who wouldn’t…
Calling the Tax Office: unpleasant. Therefore avoided for weeks.
Calling my Insurance Company: unpleasant. Also avoided for weeks.
Complaining to my Roofing Company: unpleasant. But necessary. Very necessary: I no longer have enough pots and pans to put underneath my leaking office roof.
