This is an empath tip, but it can apply to a caregiver or anyone who has a giving heart.
When you give to someone, whether it is dealing with a loved one, a customer at your job, even having a random conversation, you are conducting an energy exchange. It’s hardly ever an even transaction. Most of the time, one person is giving more than they are receiving. This is draining to the giver. It can leave you tired, both mentally and physically.
You have the power to call back to you, the energy you gave away. It’s YOUR energy. It doesn’t belong to them. They were just borrowing for that moment.
Call your energy back. Say it out loud. Say where you are calling it from. This helps you stay whole because we spend so much time all through the day giving away little pieces of ourselves.
Take care of yourself always.
