This is my first time really talking about this sort of thing to please bear with me and my lack of knowledge.
I'm not sure why but I've always been able to sense other people emotions. Usually the extreme ones like Fear, Sadness, and Hate stick out the most. I can feel who these emotions are coming from and who or what it is directed at. Sometimes it's not associated with anyone living or someone I can see. Like a sort of old emotion that's been sitting there for years or maybe even from a conscious spirit. A lot of the time these emotions coming from nowhere are directed at me in the form of anger.
I've been very good with people all my life because of this ability but I'm always quick to tire from it and I need to sleep a LOT to get my energy back. Some people are worse than others in the sense that it feels like they are projecting their emotions strongly. Others are more subdued or quiet and it takes me a little bit longer to feel their emotions. I would like to figure out if there's a way to help me turn off this ability or even just quiet it down a bit.
I've come here mainly because I've recently had an increase in activity and it's causing me to not want to leave my house at all because I know I'll be dragging myself home exhausted in a matter of a few hours. I've also had a lot of dreams of death. Not my own death. I'm always someone different. And I feel their emotions as they are dying and it's always from their perspective. It's not a very pleasant experience.
If anyone could please offer some tips on how to deal with this properly please please please let me know. Thank you.
