Have you ever been swept up into other people's stormy situations, engrossed in their drama? Is that the best way to be helpful? Other people's energies can swirl around but you can stay grounded in peace, to be of service. Taking on drama won't necessarily mitigate it. Misery loves company, but commiserating might actually perpetuate the storm. You can have compassion and empathy for their reality without taking on their emotional state. By being mindful and taking inventory of priorities and values, you can triage where your energy and focus are directed rather than scattered-- because the energy vampires can be people externally, but also from the slavedriver of one's own self. Give yourself permission and prescription to protect, restore and renew your grounded center.
