All of us have experienced meeting someone for the first time and sensing their dislike towards us. This happens more often to empaths than to others, because empaths have a heightened sense of intuition and can see through others.
There are situations where we cannot find a clear reason for this change in behavior. Perhaps you were close friends but fell out, or lovers but things didn’t turn out as planned. Some people prefer to take away the light of those who shine, they want us to be disturbed and not have peace.
Below are the main reasons why empaths are disliked:
- They act as a mirror, reflecting back what others hide.
- Their vibration is too high for some to handle.
- Their stillness is wrongly interpreted as superiority.
People hide their true personality because they want to fit into society by manipulating others. They fear being judged and disliked because they use manipulative tactics to make themselves appear innocent. They attempt to maintain a false identity. When they come face to face with an empath, they cannot hide these traits and tactics from them. The empath will observe closely, exposing the traits they have worked hard to hide. This could be one reason why they ill-treat empaths.
An empath picks up on other people’s feelings such as jealousy and bad opinions. They have the ability to understand other people’s truth and unveil the mask they hide behind. This could be one of the reasons why instant dislikes can form towards an empath.
When empaths decide to make a change, they need to identify what it is about their goal that makes them feel better and more expansive. Positivity can change their mind, body, or spirit, making them cleaner or purer. This can cause rejection from those who are at lower levels of vibrations.
When we become successful, some friends may begin to hate us. They hate when we are in an emotionally high space. When we make changes and put ourselves in a low vibrating space, the same friends will start liking us. Sometimes when we become successful, others understand how much of a failure they have turned out to be. Therefore, vibrating in a higher space can repel even those who we love and care about.
When an empath is faced with problems, they want nothing more than to be invisible to others. Empaths do not usually load their issues on others. Many weak people consider this to be superior behavior. When you work on your emotional intelligence in a positive manner, people who are mentally and emotionally insecure will consider you a threat.
In addition, the more insecure someone is, the more they are offended by your silence. Others may consider this as disrespect and reject you as a way to hurt you.
When someone starts to show aversion towards you, remember not to take it personally. It is just the mirror of the empath at work.
