Being loved by someone is the most mesmerizing feeling in this world, but being loved by an empath is something beyond describable. It is selfless, it’s intense and it’s something you have probably never felt before.

When an empath decides to love you, it’s going to be like you’re experiencing a love from another planet. Oftentimes you’ll catch yourself wondering what is it that you did to deserve to be loved by such a special creature and the answer is: probably not much. Because empaths don’t love like normal people. Empaths love differently.

NATURAL GIVERS

Believe it or not, there are people out there who are not selfish and who don’t think only about their own well-being. Empaths are those people who make us thank God each day that they exist on this earth. They’re like human-shaped angels. So imagine being loved by someone like this. It’s a blessing, don’t you think?

When empaths love, it comes naturally to them to give anything and everything they can to you. Whatever they think you deserve-you’ll get without ever needing to ask. They give their love and time selflessly to the person they love and because they’re natural givers, they won’t hold anything back from you. Sometimes you’ll even get more than you deserved because giving to others comes naturally to empaths.

CONSTANTLY BROKEN

An empath’s heart is constantly broken by injustice, by inequalities, by the amount of toxicity in others and by being hurt by people. So, the least of your worries will be that you’ll ever get hurt by an empath.

They are very aware of the pain in this world and that’s why they’ll do anything they can to protect your heart. You won’t have to worry that you’ll be cheated on, that they’ll ghost on you or anything like that because, when it comes to empaths, they always put your needs before theirs.

WHEN HURT

Some might think that empaths got used to being hurt, but actually the only feeling a human being can’t get used to is the pain. When empaths are hurt, they will never project their pain on you, so that’s something you should never worry about. But they will get distant and they might forget about you for a moment or two in order to heal.

The worst thing you can do is let them be. When empaths are hurt, don’t leave them alone. Yes, give them some time, but be there for them. Show them that they’re not alone because that’s when they need to know the most that there is someone out there who cares. This is your time to give back all the love you received from an empath.

CAGED HEART

Often, it may seem to an inexperienced observer that empaths are people who love so easily. But that’s a huge mistake. When empaths have been hurt one too many times, when they give their love to too many wrong people and after they get broken, they have the tendency to cage their heart. When they don’t find anyone to tell them everything is going to be okay and that they’re not alone, they’ll lock their heart and it gets almost impossible to approach them.

The most selfish thing for you to do would be to decide not to fight for them. Don’t give up just like that when you see someone like this has their heart caged. Fight just like an empath would fight for your love. Because when empaths decide to open a long-time caged heart, you’re the one who gets all the love that was being held back.

8 Ways Empaths Love Differently

SPACE

Empaths love people but they don’t enjoy being surrounded by others all the time. At times, it may be too overwhelming for them to be surrounded by people. Empaths need time to process their emotions, they need time to rest from everything that’s overbearing to them, so don’t try to fight it. This ‘space’ doesn’t mean they’re out there ‘hunting’ for someone new or that they got fed up with you. It means they’re recharging and that they’ll get back to you as soon as they get a chance.

The positive side of this story is the fact that empaths are not clingy. They’re never too much. Because they understand the benefits of space, you’ll always have enough space for yourself. You’ll be able to breathe while being in a relationship. And you’ll know you’re loved even when the person who loves you isn’t around you.

HONESTY

No matter how painful it might be, empaths will always go with the truth. They hate lying and they hate being lied to. They are some of the most forceful advocates of ‘better to get hurt by the truth than comforted with a lie’.

Because empaths like truth, you’ll never be lied to. You’ll always be clear with where you stand with them. You won’t ever need to worry that an empath is lying to you or that you’re being manipulated. You’ll always get the truth in your relationship, and this is something many couples lack.

INTUITION

What not many people know about empaths is that they have highly-developed intuition. They have the ability to see many things and many emotions invisible to the eyes of others. That’s why you’ll sometimes have the feeling you’re being spied on or something like that. But it’s not what you think.

Because of their intuition, empaths often sense things you don’t say to them. Oftentimes they know how you feel before you realize it yourself.

You won’t be able to hide your feelings from an empath and the best part is that they’ll always be there for you. They’ll always help you to handle your feelings and they’ll know exactly what to do in any situation. Your emotions will always be an empath’s priority.

At times it may feel like being in the company of a magically gifted being who has special powers that we have been led to believe do not exist within humans. This can be both a blessing and a curse. Nothing will get past an empath as they see, feel and connect with everything at all times.

INTENSE LOVE

Love with an empath will be intense. It will be honest and it will be something you have never experienced before. If you’re lucky to be loved by an empath, you’ll see colors and shades you have never known before.

Empaths are energetically sensitive, they pick up on everything that’s happening around them and they’ll be in tune with you almost all the time. What you’ll feel with an empath is something people refer to as ‘alien love’ because it’s something a normal human could never give you.

Being loved by an empath will be one of the most fulfilling loves you have ever experienced. You’ll have someone who’ll always be there for you and who’ll treat you as a priority. Someone who’ll care for you and who’ll always give you more than you deserve. It will be different. It will be nothing you ever experienced before. Don’t wonder where you got it from. Embrace it.
