Many empaths, in their deep desire to get along, have developed the habit of stepping back and allowing other energies to take the lead, even if those energies were not an energetic match to them or do not serve the whole.
Dear Ones, the time for this is over. You, as beautiful, tender, loving souls are needed to shine your truth and to own your energetics. Shine! Be a bringer of energy rather than a catcher of energy. Lead with your love and beingness, and not only will you be more comfortable, you will allow yourself to be finally be seen and respected for it. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
