Repel Emotional Vampires

An excerpt from this week’s newsletter, in case you missed it…

Question: What are emotional vampires?  What do they drain?  Do they know what they’re doing?  What can I do to deal with them?

Energy/emotional vampires are people who cause you to come down several notches in vibrancy.  They usually don’t realize they’re doing it, because that’s their world.  Usually they’re pessimists or just very needy.  They don’t mean to cause harm to the people around them, they just don’t know how to act differently.  They do it to everyone who has more energy/positivity/life than they do.  It’s just a natural transfer of energy – like water flowing downstream, or a discharge of static electricity from high charge to low.

One of the first facts we learn in charisma coaching is

we’re the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with. 

So if one of these people is in your group of close friends, it might be time to say “I love you, and I need some space.” Good luck, and remember, you’re worth it!

Love, CarolAnn
