How to Deal with Energetic Vampires
Energy is contagious. When you surround yourself with positive people, you catch on to the feeling and are lighter and happier. Energy vampires, however, will suck the light out of you before you know it, leaving you exhausted and drained of your energetic reserves.
The first step to dealing with energy vampires is to identify them, which is not always as simple as it sounds. Not all energy vampires look identical. They may operate in ways that are unique to them, but the depleting effects on those around them are essentially the same.
Whether it’s the perpetual “woe-is-me” from a particular family member or significant other, the unending histrionics coming from your neighbour, the drama queen, or the outright malice of a colleague at work, the energy vampire will inevitably steal your good vibes. Which in turn causes YOU to unwittingly do the same to others if you aren’t careful.
Break the vampiric cycle. Don’t be afraid to snip the cycle in its butt – for your health and everyone else’s!
