During the holidays we are often thrown into situations with people we normally avoid. For example, if you have someone in your social sphere that is a master manipulator; hopefully, you are onto their game and usually avoid them. Master Manipulators, sadly, worm their way into most people’s lives at one time or another. They particularly seem to be attracted to empaths. An empath’s natural ability and desire to help others often makes them an easy target for exploitation.
Psychic Vampires! They exist - They are people - reader or not a reader - drain time and energy from people around them.
They are self centered and lack actual empathy. They take more than they give. They will try to convince you that you need to give to them. They are self serving - they may or may not be aware that they are a psychic vampire. If you learn how to identify - YOU will be able to recognize them before getting into a tough situation that you have a hard time getting out of.
