It’s natural for Empaths to try to help others, but that also leads to sacrificing oneself in the name of being loving and nice. Another reason for being nice is so that you will not be shunned or attacked. Being loving and nice to others, yet at the same time, hating yourself. People that deny expressing their true expression, I refer to as having the Thumper/Bambi Syndrome, where they deny their real expression just to make others feel comfortable. Suppression of real feelings and emotions creates a fear of emotional expression and a door that one needs to walk through and heal what was denied.
