Are there special challenges to being a male empath?
Empaths are highly sensitive, finely tuned instruments when it comes to emotions. They feel everything, sometimes to an extreme and are less apt to intellectualize feelings. This is particularly challenging for men as they are often told by society while growing up, “Big boys don’t cry.” That’s why it’s so important for sensitive men to let go of stereotypes and learn to embrace their gifts.
There’s nothing more attractive than a sensitive man. As an empathic man you want to hone your sensitivities while also grounding yourself in your power and setting boundaries with negative people so they don’t drain you. Your empathy will allow you to love more fully and be in a loving relationship more fully. But you need to have alone time in a relationship so you can feel comfortable.
A man’s empathy allows him to love more fully and be more committed in a loving relationship. But empathic men must nurture their sensitivities while also grounding themselves in their power and setting boundaries with negative people so they aren’t drained.

I hope you can lead all men through the threshold of love, sensitivity and embracing commitment without fear.
From one empath to another,
All the best,
