I received a MOBI.file copy of this book from the author through a giveaway she had on LibraryThing, and the following is my honest opinion.
Wendy Robbins, in this book, answers the some of us might have when we’re able to sense somehow what other people are going through and feel the same way they do, especially when what they’re feeling is emotional. The answer to feeling this sensation is, according to the author, is that you might be an empath.
Ms. Robbins dwells into both sides of being an empath, and according to the description for her book, this constant reception of other people’s feelings can cause a roller coaster of stress and anxiety. Due to the high sensitivity of feelings around them, an Empath can end up thinking about the needs of every other person yet their own.
While this might be true, there are specific advantages of being an empath, and the author tells her readers, like me, what they are and how one goes about embracing their newly acquired attribute and how to make the most out of it. In wanting to assist her readers in determining whether or not they’re an empath, the author provides a listing of characteristics that empaths possess. A person realizing that they’re an empath requires specific tools of knowledge in dealing with being one, which the author thoughtfully has provided, tools that should render the individual capable of reaching their full potential in being an empath.
I don’t know if I’m a real empath since my ability to interact with other individuals might be linked to my increased interest in scripture. In conclusion, for Ms. Robbins wanting to help her readers determine if they are an empath and how to make the most out of it, if they are, I’ve given Ms. Robbins, 5 STARS.
