Some individuals growing up in alcoholic families become hyper-sensitive or empathic. This can lead to tremendous stress, social anxiety, and depression later on because empathic people often take on the feelings/emotions of others – particularly people with narcissistic tendencies, like alcoholics or addicts. In this book, Orloff explains what it means to be empathic, how to tell basic sensitivity from empathy, and how to protect oneself from absorbing other people’s feelings and emotions.
