Jesus Was A Saint

My job entails talking with people for my whole work shift. I am a people person, but being an empath makes it hard sometimes with all the range of emotions coming through my phone. I’ve gotten a thicker skin than I used to have, but when people get rude with me I react by getting teary vs getting firm back.

I was sitting at work the other day and thinking about how Jesus truly was a saint for the patience he had with humanity while living physically on earth with us. Having patience with people’s attitude is not easy. Sometimes if I get upset my voice gets wavery which is hard to disguise. I am a naturally happy person, but being social for my job nonstop is draining.

I have become quite the introvert over the years and my current job has increased that part of me on weekends so I can recharge for the upcoming week. I recharge by reading and mentally recharging. I do best hanging out one on one or in a small group. I don’t do big groups and I abhor sitting at a table in the middle of a restaurant. I feel overly vulnerable being in the middle of a room like that.

Is it easy to be nice 24/7? Nope. It’s very challenging, though being courteous isn’t hard. Sometimes it feels like society as a whole is depressed and negative. It makes it tough as an empath to feel that negative energy off and on all day. Can any of you relate?

  1. Jesus appears to be loving and gentile. But outside the Bible and hinted at within, he seems angry and combative. A certain Jesus who arrived in Jerusalem with mariners (fisherman) and the poor demanded the Gold of the Temple. He was combative and outraged by Roman rule. I wait for common sense to overrule emotion but emotion is all consuming.

  2. What do you do for work?
    In my teens and early twenties, I thought I would want to be a therapist. I got married and had kids and thought I would go to grad school when they went to school, but I have thought about it and I am too much of an empath and I don’t think I could handle it. I give you a lot of credit for sticking with a job that requires you to talk to people all day.
