Even though I have done the deeper work of embracing the superpowers that accompany being a MenPathic, there are times when it gets the best of me.
As a MenPathic, and possessing a healthy mix of both HSP and empathic traits, I’ve worked hard to understand and embrace my superpowers. I recognize that while there are some negative aspects of these traits, I am far and away a better person for having done the work.
Still, anxiety is once again my constant companion.
So said a young father-to-be in a FB group this past week. He’s posted a question in the style of many in these groups that seem to have not yet undertaken the work of embracing their traits. The problem this young man posed was this:
Introverted HSPs and empaths need to utilize this indispensable tool following periods of intense social interactions. For introverted MenPaths especially, it can mean the difference between wrecking or salvaging the rest of your day.
Today’s open office environments are bad news for empaths and HSPs, and having a Type-A boss is like a double-whammy, a one-two punch, or whatever you prefer to call it.
It’s been one hell of a week. You could say that I’ve been swimming in cortisol and other stress hormones all week. That can’t be good.
