It’s easy to say “just be yourself” to someone. But many don’t realize that they are disconnected from who they are. Society likes people who conform, and so from an early age, we often are told that if we are different in any way it is “bad”. This is particularly true if you are an empath and have psychic abilities, which aren’t as easily acceptable in society. Parents, teachers, peers, siblings, friends, spouses, colleagues…all give feedback on who we are every day. And they often hold their own opinions about what they think you should do, how they feel you should act, and who they feel you should be. Because of this, there is often pressure to conform to what others want of us so that we can gain their approval. But this comes at a high cost. We can wind up giving up parts of who we truly are, just to make others happy.
