Energy Vampires

Yet, at times, someone, from somewhere comes along to challenge your boundaries, and steal your happiness. These negative people are “energy vampires”.

Energy vampires may exhibit a victim like behavior.  This behavior removes them from blame, allowing them to project their wrongs in life onto you.  It is always someone else’s fault; victim energy vampires seldom realize they have options to help themselves.  Each of us is struggling with different scenarios in life, and at times we feel downhearted.  Positive people find ways to lift from the rut; victim energy vampires wish to stay in the rut.

Energy vampires often choose to ignore or never gain control of their emotions.  Emotions are the basis for our actions and reactions in life.  These people are liabilities, especially in relationships.  What is that saying, the first time you do something it is a mistake, the second time it is a choice.  Accountability is part of spiritual growth.  Habitual energy vampires who choose to deny emotions stay stuck in their story to gain attention and sympathy.  This robs you of your precious time, energy and positive way of thinking.  Empathy is great but sympathy means you take on another’s problem so the vampire does not have to deal with it.
