I'm reaching out. I have always had experiences but never put anything together and never developed anything further. I've heard things, seen things, had shared dreams, and experienced empathy. As I get older, I'm starting to gain knowledge about myself and understand why I've always been so overwhelmed by emotions.
I'm easily affected by other people's emotions. When I'm in a yelling argument, I can't even get any words out because I'm so overwhelmed by the emotion in the room and all I can do is cry. Crying seems to be my means of releasing the emotions of others. I would just think I'm sensitive but its like I can see into them and I don't feel like its my feelings making me cry.
I feel like most people I know as soon as I meet them and I can always feel the mood of a room as soon as I walk into it. For a while, I thought I was developing an introverted behavior even though I never use to be that way. Now, I'm thinking the feelings of others are affecting me so much, I cannot deal with group situations.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to tune out other people's emotions, especially when in a room full of people? I read something about yarrow flower essence helping. But are their exercises?
