This isn't a story about a relationship gone bad after all everyone's been through heartbreak but feel I should explain the situation prior to my experience happening.
I broke up with my ex partner just over 3 and a half months ago, he was the love of my life but for 18 months previous to the break up he put me through hell, lying, cheating etc. In this time I went through every emotion under the sun. When we broke up we had been doing fine, looking for a new apartment and getting on brilliantly but he just packed up and left over night with no explanation, I haven't seen or heard from him since and spent a lot of time in emotional agony but have moved on and felt so much better and like myself again over the past 3 weeks.
A couple of nights ago as I was sleepily getting ready to go to bed and just as I finished brushing my teeth a wave of intense guilt came over me, it just hit me out of nowhere it was almost physically painful, I led on my bed curled up foetus style with tears rolling down my face trying to figure out where this emotion came from and why it was happening, it was the most intense emotion I have ever felt but what's more is that somehow I knew these emotions weren't my own.
This went on for approx 15 minutes then they left just as quick as they arrived, I was confused and in shock, I've never experienced anything like that and I don't know if the emotions were those of my ex partners or someone else's.
Prior to getting ready for bed, I had been casually flicking through a magazine, I was happy and relaxed and not thinking about anything In particular.
I would like to know if anyone else has ever had a similar experience, got any advice or has an opinion on this as to be honest this shook me to the core.
Thanks in advance for any comments. J x
