Oh, the energy vampires. They come in a variety of forms. They are parasites, bloodsuckers, leeches, freeloaders. A very exhausting person to have in your life. The hot word is ‘energy vampire’ which is commonly used, however, I am going to break down the kind of people they are in your life. 

So, what the heck is an energy vampire? 

Glad you asked! Energy vampire is someone who takes energy away from you after every conversation. Drain the life out of you until you are dry and tired as heck. 

Here are some personality traits an energy vampire can have: 

  • Cheater
  • Manipulative
  • Only care about themselves aka Narcissistic
  • Liar
  • Blaming things on you 
  • Constantly walking on eggshells around this person
  • Jealous 
  • Insecure that they put you down 
  • Fun hater

You are basically in the Sympathetic Nervous System mode (flight, fight, freeze and/or fawn) majority of the time with this person. It can be exhausting. 

Have you thought about your relationship to this person? 

The uncomfortable part is to take a step back and honestly think about your relationship to this individual. It can be uncomfortable because this person may have been there for you, in their own way, you may not believe they are draining energy from you, and it is a bit sad when you realize your relationship with this person may be one-sided.

Ask yourself this question, “Do I believe my relationship with this person is genuine?” 

Now, when I say genuine, I mean honest, natural, positive, there for one another, listening to each other. Really think about it because this person may not be a good influence on you. And if the person is draining you, how can you be there for yourself and the people who honestly care about you? 

Tough topic to talk about, however, I hope it was helpful for you. Let me know on Instagram if you had recently re-evaluate your relationship with someone and how did you take the first step into changing it.
