What is an empath? According to Merriam-Webster, the empath definition is: ‘One who experiences the emotions of others: a person who has empathy for others.’
Empathy is the ability to compassionately feel others’ feelings and empathize with them.
While empathy can be wonderful, it can also cause empaths to make big mistakes that can hurt their romantic relationship and lead to toxic love.
One of these mistakes is caretaking.
