When there’s nowhere else to run
Is there room for one more son
One more son
If you can hold on
If you can hold on, hold on
I wanna stand up, I wanna let go
You know, you know – no you don’t, you don’t
I wanna shine on in the hearts of men
I wanna mean it from the back of my broken hand
I will never know how many people I have actually helped.
I do know that each of them was at a point where holding on felt like an option that was being taken away.
The energy work I do allows me to take the total emotional you in one shot and give you strength and peace and clarity in return. It’s something most Empaths do simply as a matter of their being.
Another head aches, another heart breaks
I am so much older than I can take
And my affection, well it comes and goes
I need direction to perfection, no no no no
Most Empaths have a life that has them seeing people coming to them when they are heart broken for a myriad of reasons.
You start to feel old when you have taken on so much and given so much.
It also tends to give Empaths an edge.
People will want to spend time with an Empath and not realize why they are doing it.
They want that good feeling they get every time they are around or talk to the Empath in their life. At times as an Empath you develop personality quirks that discourages people from wanting to be around you.
Every interaction for an Empath has the potential to be a drain on them.
We do it to protect ourselves. If we don’t we spend all our time working out your emotional issues.
Yeah, you know you got to help me out
Yeah, oh don’t you put me on the back burner
You know you got to help me out
You’re gonna bring yourself down
No one ever says “Yo my life is fucked, however take your sweet ass time to getting around to me.”
We can become even more frustrated when no one seems to see the urgency we feel.
We can feel ignored or even as though we may not even exist.
When we don’t get what we are looking for, what we feel we need, sometimes we can get spiteful.
These changes ain’t changing me
The gold-hearted boy I used to be
My mother tells a story that even when I was 3 and 4 I could just sense she was feeling sad and I would come give her a hug. Being an Empath means I feel what you need emotionally much clearer than you could ever tell anyone. At times a hug isn’t it. At times it’s a hammer shot of clarity.
People will wallow in self pity and misery and the best thing you can do for them is to give them that hammer shot up side the head. It’s not an easy thing to do as we often get a lash out reaction.
Tough shit, if you care enough to be there, you care enough to be honest instead of feeding the suffering.
Love is not always a cuddly thing and sometimes tough love comes in the form of hard truth.
We often don’t want to hear the truth we want to stay in the hell we created for ourselves.
We don’t want to do the work ourselves, we want someone to show up and save our ass.
I got soul, but I’m not a soldier
The difference between a warrior and a soldier is a soldier is ordered into battle a warrior chooses their battles.
Life is a war.
The battles are fought daily and the war never ends.
Life is a war of ideas.
Look around and see the truth for yourself.
Do you fight the battles you are told to fight or the ones you choose?
Your only weapon is your mind.
How sharp is your sword?
Who wields the sword you are?
Over and in, last call for sin
While everyone’s lost, the battle is won
With all these things that I’ve done
All these things that I’ve done
To win your own inner battles at times everyone else has to lose so you can take care of you.
Your life is a culmination of all these things you have done. However this does not absolve the rest of the world for turning their back on you.
No one accomplishes great things on their own. No one.
Anyone in history or in current day that has notoriety for their accomplishments has not done one damn thing on their own. They had assistance, a lot of it.
For you to get where you are you had assistance and a lot of it.
How often do you think about the assistance your life has been given from a big picture view?
How often do you step outside yourself to look at your life?
How often do think about yourself as it was someone else and then think about what you would think about that person?
How can you be honest with yourself if you don’t?
Whisper if you feel me.
