I have a close friend who is an empath. She seems to be very sensitive to energies. There are times she gets so overwhelmed and upset about someone that is negative or an event that has happened negatively. We text daily a lot. Sometimes when it's really bad she calls me upset. She says that my voice calms her. She says all she has to do is hear my voice and she feels instant relief. She has told me that I am her "Rock" and tell people I'm her bestfriend. Is there a specific meaning and empath would mean by that? I do everything I am able to help her through every day. At times, I wonder if I do too much. Maybe not. I always make sure she has ate something since she often forgets. We have lunch together often as well. We talk a lot, many times she needs to let out stuff to me and at times ends up in tears.
What things can I say and do to help ease the pain she feels. Sometimes I can feel her pain from across the room when things are so hard on her. I hate seeing her in those situations but still want to take her pain away. What can I do for her in these situations?
