I have had many experiences that have made me think that I may be an empath. Sometimes my mother asks me to scratch her back in places she can't reach (or she's too lazy), and I don't really feel the places that she needs most help on on my body, but I could sense them on her. The same goes with everyone else I have ever scratched.
My most unusual empathic experience was when I was in eighth grade. It was the day of my school talent show and there was this boy who I had for almost all my classes. He had signed up to participate in the talent show. I didn't really feel a romantic connection with this boy (yes, I'm a girl!) but after learning about him more throughout the school year, I realized we had many things in common. This made me more attracted to him, but I wasn't one hundred percent sure if I really like him (the reason that I include this information is so the reader could understand the relationship between this boy and me).
The day of the talent show, I sat a few seats away from the stage with the rest of the audience. After a few performances by other students, it was this boy's turn to perform. When he got on stage and started to sing and strum his guitar, I became very sweaty and I felt like my skin was burning and I felt nervous (and I don't mean the guy was great-looking or anything and that was causing it). I am not sure if what I felt had to do with what he felt as he stood on stage in front of about two hundred something students and teachers, or I just suddenly felt that way for I don't know what other reason. I really don't know if this was an empathic experience or something else but could someone please give me some words on which they think happened here? I'll try to answer back soon so we could figure it out. Thank you for your time!
