I feel when people are sad but that is as far as it goes you sound like you may be a empath and it is a possability you are caring and very sweet so I beileive you
I was just going to say the same thing, that she may be an empath. My gran was one.
Gurl! You're not crazy at all :P It must be hard in crowded places like shopping malls right? You can find a lot of resources online about Empaths and how to deal with all the incoming traffic.
Oh hon, you definitely need some coping strategies for it. You must be physically and mentally drained most days! :(
Do your. 16 personality test on the internet it tells you exactly who you are
Can I have your phone number so can do that to me again
I think we could be related
I am exactly the same way
I knew I <3'd you for a reason!
no we don't
we need a spa day! lol :)
To an extreme, I used to be. Still feel this way for the most helpless of us. It feels as though I'm experiencing what they were going through. I dealt with it by compartmentalizing everyone. If you weren't the most helpless of us, I rationalized the individual had the ability to resurrect themselves from whatever plagued them...and likely caused their own plight. Children and the eldest among us, often the most helpless; I still feel.
as i learned, that can be very detrimental to you. you can be easily used and taken advantage of by those who appear to be the victim, but in actuality are where they are because they victimized others...you just don't know them. careful...
to each their own...i prefer to invest my energies in those who don't create their unfortunate circumstances. you've just a greater capacity for sympathy than I...I hope whatever it is you sense within others doesn't malfunction.
You're in touch with the universe, and since we are all part of it, you see more clearly what many are unaware of. I'm sensitive to these things too, although not nearly as sensitive as you. It's not BS.
I feel the same way, too, but I am a bit more cautious than you about whom I approach...It is being involved in mankind...
Forgive me for waxing poetic, but this poem says it all:
No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
We can only help people who want help and even then, they have to take steps to help themselves. Young children always liked me, especially little girls and in the 70s there was no problem. These days times are different and I cant be as outgoing and friendly with them unless I know their parents. Also, now that I'm older I have to be cautious especially with young women. AA is a very huggy feely type of program but some men carry it too far. I try to help everybody because that is what we do, but with all women, I only offer my hand until they offer me a hug...
Yes, i love all people because we are all gods children but that doesnt mean I have to like everybody. Those i dont like I dont have much to do with but if they asked me for my help I would give it willingly and lovingly,...
You are not alone in this. Embracing a little apathy will save your sanity.
Thank you! Finally another person feels like this too! I'm so empathetic that if someone tells me their problem ill start bawling and ill feel all there pain like it was happening to me. Even if its a stranger. It's so weird I don't know what's wrong with me!:D
I wanna hug you too lol:) and I try to act hard as hell just to cover up all my emotions but when I get home or I'm alone all of it just comes flooding out! The anger, sadness, grief, all of it. And I don't know how to turn it off! It's so overwhelming sometimes!
PREACH! Lol:) I know what you mean! When I love people, I love them the way that I'd want to be loved by somebody else. I give them all of myself. All of the compassion, warmth, understanding and its all unconditional. But sadly not everyone in the world is like that so I do have to protect myself sometimes by being hard. But I try to surround myself with people like me so we all can just be one big EMPATHETIC HOT MESS lmao:)
