You wouldn’t think Mork from Ork and emotional vampires would have much in common would you?
For me they do.
First let’s talk about the vampires in the most loving and non-judgey way that I can. Emotional vampires aren’t just people – they’re information, or pictures, or social media, or newspapers, or movies – anything really. So, let’s start by asking a couple of questions:
*Do you have a friend, relative or colleague who is an energy sucker? An emotional vampire? Where you leave the conversation feeling depleted, depressed or wanting to suck your thumb?
*Have you ever had someone emotionally puke on you?
*Have you ever asked someone ‘How are you?’ and then they regurgitate a bunch of negative spew?
*Have you ever watched a show on tv or read a magazine that makes you feel less than?
*Have you ever watched the news, seen something on the internet, or in the newspaper that emotionally taxed or depressed you?
*Have you ever seen an image on a Facebook post that horrifies you, shocks you, damages you?
Is any of this resonating with you?
