Being an Empath is Hard – Empath’s Survival Guide by Judith Orloff Review

Being an empath is hard. Most don’t understand what you are experiencing and even some of those who have the empath trait are so busy hiding it because they don’t understand their own reactions and are often embarrassed by others when they talk about it.

That is an excerpt from a review for Judith Orloff’s The Empath’s Survival Guide. The reviewer nails it with that comment and many more in her review. A very interesting point she made that I’ve echoed many times is that the books shares great information for people to learn whether they are empaths or highly sensitive or just want to learn more about these type of people. Many people in our everyday lives have these abilities – and it can be beneficial for us to understand how they are experiencing the world around us.  There is also great information for parents who have empathic and sensitive children.

The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People

By Dr Judith Orloff

What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath? “Having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain,” says Dr. Judith Orloff. “But for empaths it goes much further. We actually feel others’ emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have.” The Empath’s Survival Guide is an invaluable resource for empaths and anyone who wants to nurture their empathy and develop coping skills in our high-stimulus world—while fully embracing their gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection.

This practical, empowering, and loving book was created to support empaths through their unique challenges and help loved ones better understand the empath’s needs and gifts. Dr. Orloff offers crucial practices, including:

  • Exercises to help you identify your empath type and where you are on the empathy spectrum
  • Tools for protecting yourself from sensory overload, exhaustion, addictions, and compassion fatigue while replenishing your vital energy
  • Simple, effective strategies to stop absorbing stress and physical symptoms from others and protect yourself from narcissists and other energy vampires
  • How to find the right work that feeds you
  • How to navigate intimate relationships without feeling overwhelmed
  • Guidance for parenting and raising empathic children
  • Awakening the empath’s gift of intuition and deepening your spiritual connection to all living beings

For any sensitive person who’s been told to “grow a thick skin,” here is a lifelong guide for staying fully open while building resilience, exploring your gifts of depth and compassion, and feeling welcome and valued by a world that desperately needs what you have to offer.
