Can we really absorb energy from other people? Science is not yet able to answer this question. Often, however, the most sensitive and empathic people have the impression of being in some way influenced by the energy of those around them.

We really can absorb energy from other people? Science is not yet able to answer this question. However, often the most sensitive and empathic people have the impression of being somehow influenced bypositive or negative energy of those around them.

It is not just a question of 'invisible' energies and a hypothetical transmission of energy between human beings but also, and perhaps above all, the sensation of feeling more or less influenced by the words and behaviors of others.

In fact, we know how the words and actions of the people around us can determine our way of life, even when we don't realize it. The example of advertising is the most striking.

Are we losing the ability to be truly free? In a sense we are all manipulated by the words and actions of others? We can try to be more aware of our thoughts, our actions and our way of life to try not to let ourselves be influenced by people we do not trust and not to risk getting trapped in unpleasant situations.

Avoid 'toxic' people

In different situations of our life we have the choice the people with whom we would like to spend time in a quiet and peaceful way. Avoiding negative people altogether is perhaps impossible, but we can learn not to let their actions and thinking affect our mood and disrupt our days. Arrogant, victimized, opportunistic, exploitative and manipulative: we can certainly do without their company to live better.

We cannot change others

People can only change if they really want to. We cannot expect to be able to change others and we should never even try to do so. Each of us has a different purpose in life, we have our own goal to achieve. If a person does not like us, it is useless to try to change his behavior or hope that he will change. Perhaps one day he may start following our positive example, but it will be solely his choice. When ideas diverge and paths separate it is better for everyone to go their own way if by now the situation has become irreconcilable and too heavy to bear.

Turn your attention elsewhere

We try to draw a boundary line between ourselves and the people who come to look for us only when they want to complain and vent their problems on us, without giving in exchange even a few seconds of listening. At some point we can decide to turn our attention elsewhere and not give weight to the words of these 'parasites'. A parasite cannot survive if the source it feeds on is no longer available.

Take responsibility

A mature adult person is capable of take responsibility for their actions. We are most responsible for our actions, our thoughts, our emotions and everything that happens to us in life. The answers are always within us. We cannot find them in the words and speeches of others.

Recognize the truly special people

Fortunately, there are not only toxic and negative people in our life. We can then learn a recognize who the really special people are who know how to encourage us and to talk to without the risk of feeling manipulated, crushed and overwhelmed by a really unpleasant and annoying feeling. We give our trust to kind people, who know how to listen, who are able to smile and have fun despite the difficulties of life.
