I'm going to put this out in the open before I start on this, I've had an account on here before but I've abandoned it a while ago. Now on to my experience.
I've always been connected more emotionally than other people, and have been more sensitive to emotions. When I was younger, well younger than I am now, I use to have no clear understanding of this. It only grew stronger as I aged a little, and figured out I was an empath.
At first it just started with knowing when others that were close to me were upset or how they felt, but now it's progressed to actually feeling the emotions as if I were them and getting images of what had happened in my mind. It's as if I'm looking down on the scene with a birds eye view, but slightly tilted. The stronger my ties are with a person the more vivid and strong the emotions are.
For example, I have this friend, she has a very hard life keep that in mind, who I've slowly grown very close to. I've noticed out bond is very different than a lot of bonds I've already created. It is different as in how her emotions so easily effect me, and how I know how's she's feeling or when she's lying. Sure that's with others as well, but it's easier to tell with her. Also I've had this strong urge to protect her with everything I have. We are Internet friends, but we don't live far from each other, her state borders mine, and oddly I feel the urge to keep her safe even though she's older.
I am also very confused at why our bond is so close and why I want to protect her so much. I'm even confused about how the images of what had happened are so clear in my head.
I've noticed I can also use the bond in other ways than just emotions. I closed my eyes and felt our bond, and I was joking around saying I was coming to her house. Keep in mind I've never even been in her house, due to how far away we live, or seen pictures of it. Anyways, I began to get images of her house as I felt our bond. I described how her house looked and surprisingly I got most everything correct. I even counted how many stairs she had. This surprised me because I normally can't do such a thing, and it's never happened again since then.
Thank you for reading this, and I'll appreciate if anyone comments. I still have many things to tell, but of course it will be in other things I submit.
