    Very good article Renae. I can relate to this as I am very sensitive myself and people often open up to me everywhere I go. I struggle with boundaries, however I am learning to set them. being a reflector causes me to take on someone else’s issues to deeply and causes health problems for me. I will be mindful of these tips and incorporate them into my life. Keep these great insights coming.

      Thanks Ann! Yes, I have also had burn out and gotten sick from worrying about other people’s stuff too. I hope these tips help you to keep that little bit of distance. And thank you for providing me with a reflecting space many times. Your gift is so valuable.

    Great article. I take on the “feelings” of people or situations very easily. I am ultra sensitive to negative emotions. I have to be very careful who I decide to spend my time with and for how long. Like you, I often have friends share their challenges and other situations with me and seek advice. I do have a few friends, as bad as it sounds, I have to limit my time with. They always have a lot of drama and victimization feelings and I just can’t handle it. I even have a challenging time watching the news, there is hardly anything positive reported. As bad as it may sound, I don’t know much about current affairs. So, some of the things you mention in your blog are great tips. Thanks so much Renae!

      All of these are great tips too Dannielle! Thank you! So helpful! I practice the same as you have mentioned here too. Self-care is so important but something that isn’t really encouraged in our culture unfortunately, though I hope this is changing 🙂
