This bothers me.
Whenever I see this, it gets my hackles up, so brace yourselves, profanities and ranting is on its way…
This meme is fucking bullshit. I hate how it places the onus of cleansing on Empaths, stating that it is our “divine responsibility” to filter the drek and garbage floating about in the Universe just for shits and giggles, and if we resist, then we suffer from unstated punishments and the threat of “do this or else” is all over this meme like flies on manure.
At least manure would be useful. This combines a dizzying mix of victim-blaming, removal of free-will, implying that this is all we might be good for (to serve as cosmic filtration, really? Honestly I prefer not to be the algae eater of the Universe’s emotional issues, thankyouverymuch….)
I dislike the part about lacking free-will most of all. As someone with Empathic abilities, I have had to learn when to let other people’s energy in, and when to ward against an invasion of my energetic privacy. This meme states that I am not supposed to make that choice, and to filter away like the good little Energy Dermestid that I am.
Fuck that noise. Part of learning my abilities was the basic setting and defense of boundaries, instead of letting all and sundry dump their burdens at my doorstep to be dealt with for them. This absolves them of any form of responsibility, and leaves me with the demands of disposing of their trash. Since when is it not only allowed, but encouraged to treat Empaths worse than we treat the planet we call home?
