I feel I have been both. I used to feel a lot more drained when I was feeling an emotional connection to pain.
Since using some energy tools to keep my sovereignty over my aura I have been able to lessen the energy depletion, while still being able to cognitively connect.
I hope that made sense. I am learning I find it challenging to stick to a concise label or word when I am talking about things new to my awareness.
Thanks for posing the question.
You have gifted me space to think and reflect on who I am now.
Thanks for being you.
