I Don't Know What I Am Or My Potential


I've always had a sense for people's emotions even when I haven't wanted to. I'm in a relationship, have been for four years, and sometimes it's easier to brush off emotions until feelings are settled. So when my boyfriend says he's fine, I know differently. I don't feel the emotions but I know when I look at someone their emotions. I also know when my bosses, or newly met friends, don't like me or feel iffy or don't feel confident of me. I knew a co-worker's, who I just met, sadness when she was in the bathroom. Couldn't see her face, but the minute she came back to work I knew she was upset. I asked her why and she was astounded. Asking me how I knew because she didn't feel her sadness when she came back to work.

At my old job I was a supervisor and I knew when someone needed help or was doing something wrong, even though I was in the back when they were in the front. Sometimes when I read a word, I often hear it a second later. If I say a word, I often read it. If I ask a question, I sometimes hear a response to the question.

When I decide to watch a movie I see everyone talk about it on Facebook or see it more often (not having mentioned seeing the movie to a social media or anyone else).

For the longest time I've been a skeptic, but I feel like there's something more to me than I give myself credit for. I don't know where to start and I'm still kind of a skeptic and feel I may be looking to close into coincidences. Please help, if you have the time. I would appreciate it.

Sounds like you're an empath! One of the cool things about being an empath is that we know what people are feeling and sometimes we just know things, like when someone needs help. We can also spot a liar, which you seem to have done before. I agree with AmberEyes. Try reading other empath's stories and see how they compare to yours. I'd post mine, but the site is currently not accepting them.
I also would suggest doing your own research. Good luck!

Maybe you should share more of your experiences, there aren't character limits as I've seen stories a lot longer than yours. If you posted them it might give more clarity as to what abilities you may/may not have. However, what you've described in your story and comment sounds like the traits of an empath. You can choose to believe it or not but empaths are more in tune to others than most. They tend to be able to experience emotions that others are feeling and sometimes this can be overwhelming such as when you said you cried from it. I suggest you look through other empaths experiences so that you can come to your own conclusions. Good luck if you choose to take this further or even if you decide that this is not for you. 😊

I'm skeptical that any of this really chalks up to anything, besides the fact that I'm just sensitive a and intuitive. I'm not necessarily worried, really. It's just the fact that, for a while, it was minute and hardly noticeable. When I was younger, I had a dream of walking down the hall and saying hello to a face I'd never seen before. The next day, the same thing happened, in the same way. After that, besides seeing words and hearing them a second later, it subsided for a while. Only recently have things started growing. And only recently have I felt an imbalance in my emotions. (I wished to go more in depth with everything, but there was a limit on characters:P) Not just am imbalance, but more of feeling completely out of control. Intense anger, intense sadness, intense happiness to the point of tears didn't start until I started to become more sensitive and intuitive towards people's emotions.

I was just wondering if anyone had experience with this. That maybe something is surfacing and I just haven't honed it. Or maybe it's fairly normal for the average person to feel this way and I'm just making a big production of it. I'm not worried. Just trying to reach out and find someone else who may be able to help me understand. Thank you!

What is there to be 'skeptical' of because you are sensitive and intuitive towards the feelings of others? It sounds like you are perceptive and there is nothing weird about that. We can call it intuition, gut instinct or whatever, but some humans are just more perceptive than others. I wouldn't blow this out of proportion but just accept it as an ability of yours that could potentially make you a person that can help others and bring relief in reference to their own dilemmas/issues (assuming they are seeking this). That sounds to me like a blessing and one not to be worried about.
