-The Masculinity of a Male Empath-
Article by Franklin Madison
For our wonderful empath brothers! You are so valued and loved ????
The last few years of my life have been eye-opening spiritually, for me. I am coming to an understanding as to why I have felt so deeply about so many things in my life and how I have to honor those emotions and allow them to exist harmoniously within me. At the same time, I acknowledge how society views me as a man. A feeling man is no less of a man. With the inherent physical strength of a man, an empath also vibrates with his emotions at their purest and highest form.
In my adult relationships with women, I have been told to “Man up! You’re too sensitive! Stop being a Pussy!” (Yes, that was said to me.) I have spent some time with a woman who is seeking her own spirituality and most recently while in her company, I realized that I am an Empath. I now have clarity in a way I never have before in that I feel, I feel deeply and there is nothing wrong with that. The feeling is transmitted when I come into contact with people when people are very close to me. All of the senses are heightened the happiness and the sadness. Hence, being an Empath.
