An energy vampire is a person or being who feeds off the “life force” of other living creatures.Energy vampires drain your spirit and soul by depleting your positive energy. A good example is the drama queens, leave you feeling drained and listless. Psychic vampires are represented in the occult beliefs of various cultures and in fiction. There is no medical recognition or scientific consensus supporting this claim.

Energy vampires drain positive energy in many ways, such as:

Intruding on your life, ignoring boundaries and privacy (energy vampires don’t think of you).
Making big deals out of nothing. Energy vampires are often called “drama queens” because they can turn a broken nail into a Shakespearean tragedy.
Complaining constantly about their partners, jobs, children, bad luck, and illnesses. Energy vampires like to vent.
Criticizing your hair, appearance, job, children, partner, friends, and pets (energy vampires aren’t positive).
Not taking “no” for an answer. Energy vampires don’t consider your needs.
Being unrelentingly negative. Their negative energy is relentless, and energy vampires drain your positive energy by encouraging you to be negative, too.
Blaming everyone else for their problems (energy vampires don’t take responsibility for much). You know you’ve spent time with an energy vampire when you leave feeling depressed, exhausted, or sad. Energy vampires drain your positive energy for their own use. Energy vampires leave you feeling empty and sluggish–to compensate or build positive energy you may eat, drink, shop, or sleep for hours afterwards. They have an energy deficit that they must replenish.
