My name is Maggie and I'm not sure what is happening to me. I hope you can help me figure this out.
One of the things that happen to me is that whenever someone talks about spirits/ghosts I get choked up and start crying. Now, this isn't a happy cry or a sad cry, I just get that lump in the back of my throat and I cry uncontrollably. This happens if someone talks about it in person or even on TV. This crying episode was extreme when I took a picture and realized there was a spirit in it. I bawled my eyes out for about five minutes and I couldn't stop it! Even typing this now I'm getting choked up. Any thoughts on why this could be?
Secondly, whenever someone is feeling ill and tells me it I immediately feel the same way. It even happened when I was watching a reality TV show and the people on it were sick: I felt their sickness. It also happens with small things like a minor headache. Like, my friend once told me she had a headache and I immediately felt her pain. I also get random moods and after reading several stories I think I might have empathy, but I'm not positive.
Also, I can usually tell if someone is a good person or not just from a first impression. But, I can only do this if their personality is strong, otherwise I need to concentrate. Is this just a natural ability that everyone has or is it a unique ability I can improve?
Am I just slightly intuitive? If you have any ideas don't be afraid to comment; I'm curious. And, if there are any ways I can make whatever I have stronger please let me know.
