The #1 Mistake Empaths Make at Work That Costs Them Promotions (And How to Avoid It)

Are you an empath who feels stuck in your career? Do you wonder why you’re not getting the recognition and opportunities you deserve? Do you feel like there’s something holding you back from reaching your full potential at work?

If so, you’re not alone.

Many empaths face this challenge at work. Empaths are people who have a strong ability to feel or identify with the emotions, thoughts, or attitudes of others. They have a lot of compassion and empathy for others, and they want to help them and make them feel better.

But sometimes, this can backfire at work.

In this blog post, I’m going to reveal the #1 mistake that empaths make at work that costs them promotions and opportunities, and how you can avoid it and thrive in your career.

But first, let me introduce myself. My name is Crystal Trevors and I’m the founder of Live Joy Coaching and my signature Spirit Joy Group Coaching Program. I believe that mastering your spirituality and energy is the key to transforming your life and creating a lasting impact on the world. And with that my mission with Live Joy Coaching is to help awakening women and purpose-driven women leaders create bold change in their lives and the world by incorporating spirituality and energy into their personal and professional growth.

So, what is the #1 mistake that empaths make at work that costs them promotions and opportunities?

It’s something that you may not even realize you’re doing. It’s something that you may think is harmless or even helpful. It’s something that you may have been doing for a long time without knowing the consequences.

It’s oversharing or spilling.

Oversharing is when you share too many of your personal feelings and experiences with your coworkers and boss. You may think that this is a way of connecting with them and showing your authenticity, but it can also hurt your professional image and career prospects.

Let me share an example of how this can impact your career. This is a true story from a past client.

She was a Certified Professional Accountant who worked as a bill collector at a utility/power company. She was being passed over for promotions in spite of being a CPA and qualified for much larger roles. We did an Akashic Records consultation, and this is what we learned from her guides:

She was an empath who felt terrible for the people she had to call and collect money from. She heard their stories of struggle and strife, bad luck health challenges, divorce etc., and she felt their pain. She also shared her feelings with her boss, hoping to get some support or sympathy. But instead, her boss formed judgments about her abilities and resilience and decided that she was not capable of more responsibility. As a result, her name was not put forward for promotions.

So how can you avoid oversharing at work when you’re an empath? Here are some tips:

  • Become aware of the fact that you might be oversharing at work. When you are an empath and feeling overwhelmed, sharing your feelings feels like a release but if you can practice restraint about sharing your personal feelings with people at work (no matter who) because colleagues become subordinates when you get a promotion. If you can, it is better to find someone outside of your organization to share your feelings with like a close friend or my “Intuitive Empowered Women” Facebook Group.
  • Focus on the facts when communicating at work. When you’re communicating with your coworkers or boss, stick to the facts and avoid bringing in your emotions or opinions. For example, instead of saying “I’m feeling overwhelmed by this project and I don’t think I can do it”, say “This project has a tight deadline and I need some help with some tasks”. This way, you can express your needs and concerns without sounding like you’re complaining or venting.
  • Practice self-care. Being an empath can be exhausting and draining, especially in a work environment where you’re constantly exposed to other people’s energies and emotions. That’s why it’s important to take care of yourself and recharge your batteries. Find ways to relax and unwind after work, such as meditating, reading, listening to music, or spending time in nature. You can also use tools like crystals, aromatherapy, or affirmations to protect your energy field and balance your chakras.
  • Seek professional guidance if needed. If you feel like you have a problem with oversharing or spilling at work that is affecting your performance or well-being, you may want to consult a professional who can help you. You can look for a therapist, a coach, or an Akashic Records reader who can help you understand the root cause of your behavior and give you advice on how to change it. An Akashic Records reading is a spiritual modality that can access the energetic library of information about your soul’s journey across time and space. It can help you heal old patterns, wounds, habits, belief systems, and traumas that may be influencing your current situation.

So there you have it: the #1 mistake that empaths make at work that costs them promotions and opportunities, and how you can avoid it and thrive in your career.
