Dear Empath

Picture from last year at one of my favorite hangouts near my house.

Today’s post is personal and I know many of you will relate. May it bring peace to you in reading those lines. May it remind you that you feel everything just a little extra. And may it outline how truly special you are for doing so. Here it goes….

Dear empath, the one who feels everything so deeply.

I understand that your tender heart feels so tired, so overwhelmed by the heaviness of life here. You don’t understand how people can be so mean, so cruel, so vindictive and so angry. But even more so, you just don’t understand why everyone expect YOU to also be that way.

It’s just not in your nature. You love. You see all of life with love, and you only want others to also see the love and beauty that is present in all of life.

You’ve walked through most of your life feeling like an outsider, like you’re from somewhere else, and you’re beginning to desperately want to go home there now. Please don’t give up. You’re not wrong. You’re not the one who is wearing blinders to our true nature. You’ve known the answer is love all along…

The time has come for you to flourish, to learn from your heart and to share the immeasurable joy’s that doing so affords. It’s your time to shine, dear one. And to do so, you simply have to love yourself…Love yourself is fiercely as you’ve loved everyone else. That’s been your job all along – and now it’s your time. Love YOU with all your being, dear one, and you’ll remember again that ALL is well.


Your Soul

~Soul speaking


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

    1. Thank you so much dearest. I know exactly what you mean and it takes a lot of courage standing on your own. You know it’s the only way to be true to yourself. Always remember how unique and special you are. There is nothing wrong with you and you are perfect. You don’t need to change and the right people, your clan will love you for who you are. Be proud of who you are, for you are special my dear. Hugs

  2. Absolutely get this. To love is grand, to live is harder and almost more important. I learned that with mom. Love zombies who go forth to love indiscriminately, they need to live. Embrace life and live what they love. YOU do this. YOU have shown this over and over and I think of you when I forget. YOU are a live lover. (live as in a person who lives, not as in lives like 9 lives cat food…sheesh, English is an awful language!!) You are not a life lover, even if you do love life. I think it is because of that you live—Circuitous??? oh dear! I know you get what I’m trying to say, though!!!

    1. My dearest sister, I hear you loud and clear and couldn’t agree more. Nothing is ever easy, but it can be done.
      You are right and I do embrace life. It’s much simpler this way and we all decide for ourselves. For me it is working better this way. You fill my heart with your kindness and I hope you are well. Soon I will be much closer to you again. Distance wise 😉

    1. Oh that would be so wonderful. What a dream it would be and just the thought of it made me smile big. There would be a whole lot of love and creativity in one place….,and the rest f the world would suffer hahahaha. Hugs dear friend ❤️


  3. You are indeed an empath who sees other empath. And in your struggle, you see ours too. Your words are as if you can see right into my heart… for it is yours also, as with everyone here.

    Yes, my insightful one, the struggles for me have been many for me lately, and hurtful. I too must love me, especially right at this moment in time when tears spring forth. Doors are not just closing for me, but slamming in my face. I must move on and your words, spoken through your own wellspring of emotion, have made me realise that all of us here are being given a little shove by the Universe. 💕💕💕

    1. Oh dear Colette, your comment stirs on mixed emotions and I am grateful for your words and yet saddened to hear about your struggles. You know best what is happening and you don’t need reminders. And yet I’m here to say that everything happens for a reason. We often don’t understand but often something better comes along. I truly hope this is the case for you, while embracing you in a big hug.
      Be well my sister and know you are not alone. Xoxo ❤️❤️

  4. What special and precious soul-felt words you are gifting to all and so many people’s hearts are opened to them. I see them for you, my dear one. It’s comforting to know you have the power and wisdom to express them and own them, for you are right, the time has come for you to express your love for yourself, you who give your love to others like no other could. Time for your life to blossom, for your dreams to come true, for your hopes and joys to be realised. May it be so. x
