I Feel the Emotion my Friends Feel


I'm 14 and I just barely figured out that I'm able to feel people's emotions. (I started to notice my experience when I met one of my best friends, he seemed to also have some weird ability.) One day my best friend was sad because of her ex boyfriend, though she seemed (out in front) happy and excited she left him. I called her later on that day and she still seemed to be all happy. We have been chatting for a while already and she didn't tell me nothing. I felt a sadness so deep and pain and I knew it wasn't from me. I told her what I felt, assuming it was her, and she freaked out on me, asking me how did I know that without her telling me. With that day, I just have been having to be able to feel what other people feel. I still do and I seem to help my friends out when they are sad without them telling me what they feel... But there has also been a couple of times where I use to feel like something bad will happen and it has happened before, either if it's a fight or problem, I would know it before it happened.

I'm not sure if I have, ability?... Or not... I'm 15 and I kind of feed off of other people's energies... If the people I'm around are happy, I get hyper, but being around people who aren't feeling alright tends to tire me out and make me sort of upset... I have had times where not being around my friends or other people (besides the people I live with) has actually made me sick... I get headaches and I start to feel nauseous... Medicine doesn't help, but as soon as I hang out with some of my friends I start to feel better... Certain people (people I'm really close to) help more than others... I've never really thought much of that, I thought it was totally normal... But today my best friend texted me... This is someone I can't even be sad around, no matter what happens... I never EVER get mad at him no matter what he does... But he texted me and told me about something that had happened and that he was going to cut himself...he'd never done this before... I tried to keep texting him but he stopped responding after a few texts... As I was waiting for him to text me back I felt a dull pain on my left wrist... It stayed for about 30 seconds before it went away... Before I could think about what it might have been, my whole left hand and wrist went completely numb... Around this time my friend texted me back and I started asking him questions... I found out that he had cut his left wrist... He called and we talked for a little while... Eventually the feeling returned to my hand and it was just my wrist that was numb... He said he couldn't feel his left hand or wrist either (I imagine that's normal considering what he'd just did) and I'm not 100% sure exactly when he got feeling back in his wrist but I think it happened at around the same time... Sorry, this is so long I'm just sort of freaking out about it... Any ideas? He had told me was going to do it, but I didn't know where until after I had already felt it... I'm going to check the marks next time I see him and check if they're in the same spots I felt the original pain but any idea why that could've happened?

I am a 23 year old female. I have been having this happen to me for a couple years now. But now it has goten stronger and I'm having trouble being able to make the emotions leave because they are so strong. I was about your age when I started seeing things and feeling things that werent there for my eyes to see. I'm having trouble now. I went to my grandpas and hes passing away. I felt all his sadness. Its something I would never want anyone to feel like. I couldn't stay longer than 30 minutes before it became too much for me to handle anymore. I just found this site because I am looking for some help. ❤

Like all of you I experience a likeness of your "abilities"- which I believe to be intuition. I am 20 and have noticed this ability for several years now, and it has strengthened. I noticed that I am affected much more by negative emotions such as anger, anxiety, sadness, and just feelings of unease. For example, the other day I was hanging out at my boyfriends house. I went into the garage to smoke with his brother, while he sat in the living room watching tv. As soon as I reentered the living room I felt a wave of thick, heavy energy hit me. His emotions hung in the air like a cloak. I sat down and my heart started to race, and my stomach churned. I look at him, knowing instinct-fully that these emotions did not originate from me. I asked him if he was feeling anxious and he said yes. When I looked in his eyes, I knew exactly why, it was because he didn't like me being alone with his brother. I asked him if that was the reason, he said yes. Generally, this is how the negative emotions feel to me. Because of this it is nearly unbearable for me to be around negative people, or in large groups. When I feel positive energy my heart feels like it is fluttering in my chest and a tingling travels up into my throat and mouth, and then head and I feel content. I noticed the ability is enhanced when high on marijuana. I can also since a persons presence before they arrive, or if they are hiding in my house- from me. Many times I get feelings that things are going to happen- bad things, and they do. Other times I will get random images or thoughts snapping in my mind, and they happen shortly afterward. For instance the other day I was taking a shower, home alone and I got the sudden image of my boyfriend walking into my home- which at the time I thought of as wishful thinking. When I got out of the shower I went to my bed room, getting a sudden feeling that someone was behind me. My boyfriend barked, grabbing me in attempt at scaring me. I didn't flinch as I had already sensed that someone was there. Like I said I think of this as intuition, and everyone has it- others are just more aware of this natural gift, and trust in it when others do not.

I'm 13 and just started noticing that I could feel other people's emotions. At first I thought I was just having mood swings but then I realized that when I focus on somebody I can feel their emotions. The first time I noticed this was when my teacher came into the class looking really sad. At first I just felt like myself but when I was listening to her, I had a sudden feeling of extreme sadness and grief. I had a tightening in my stomach and my heart felt so heavy. When I looked my teacher in the eyes and started focusing on her, I felt like crying. I knew that it wasn't my own emotions because right before that I was laughing and joking around with my friends. As soon as class ended and we all left I could feel the sadness going away and I felt myself again.

I'm 15 and I realized this tonight the most ever than before but my girlfriend was sad I didn't know why but as I got into the shower I felt a sense of death near me and I started to tear up, and the first thing that came to mind was that I needed to ask if she was crying but before I could of asked she had sent me a texting saying she hates crying and how she hats war and that people are starving and dieing out there; I realized this before by being able to predict every single break up on the day it happens and I sense danger or a problem or trouble among my way ❤

Evil, (nice name by the way had a laugh over that) but I don't know how I was a loner my whole life until it started to fade enough to handle it, and that was just last year when I was 15. My advice is just think of the positive 😆 whenever you can. I also thought of thing that would make me laugh.

I'm shady, not evil

I didn't know so many people had this ability. I'm 18 and I've had this ability sense I was 12. When I first got it I always wanted to be around happy or ADHD people. But sense I turned 18 it went up to a whole new level. I try to shut out peoples emotions and I'm becoming a loner, but if their emotion is strong it takes over me. Recently I've been strongly reacting to sadness and pain, which is not very fun. Sometimes it feels so strong that I feel like I could snap, which
I have done a couple of times. Does anyone know how to really keep it under control? This is really starting to become a pain in my butt! >: (

I'm turning 14 really soon and I've just come to grips, literally in the last two days, that I'm an Empath. I can change people's emoitons if they're sad, I can tell what they're feeling (it's easier if they're alone with me or if they don't know me too well) and I can tell if people are lying, but it's easier if they're lying to me directly, not to someone else and I can sort of... Absorb other's emotions, which kind of sucks because it's like a constant battle between my emotions and the other person's. If I go to crowded places, ESPECIALLY airports... I hate airports, I can sometimes forgot my personality and accidentally absorb everyone else's emotions and because at Airports their emotions are so raw it can make me feel really really sick. Once I was so sick I actually vomited... 😢 I'm so glad I have these abilites though! Thanks for listening 😜

I, like most people, just wanted to comment on my experiences with what some call "empathy" but what I have found to be more than that. I think what I have is a gift, and I hope that doesn't sound crazy. My experiences differ somewhat from most of these comments as I can really only sense peoples emotions when I am near them, specifically focusing on them. At first I thought that I was just reading body language or something but it has happened on so many occasions I know it is something more. Example, the other day a comment was made that could be taken badly if you didn't hear the whole conversation. Someone I had been focused on outside of the conversation I could tell had heard what was said and I instantly had a feeling in my stomach that something wasn't right. I spoke with the person shortly after to clarify to make sure they understood what the conversation was about, needless to say they were confused on how I knew that they had over heard. Another event that I would like to share was a couple of years ago when I was dating a girl, I had suspected she was cheating on me when I left for school... Upon returning home to work the work summer and discussing the situation with a coworker I instantly knew I was correct and that it was him she had been seeing. On this occasion I confronted her about it later and I was right. It was something about the way the coworker made me feel when I discussed it with him I actually stopped mid conversation and wondered to myself if I was crazy or if I was really so certain it was him that I could accuse my girlfriend (now ex) of such a thing and to be so specific.

wow... This is awesome me and my bff/cuz are the same! Only that I'm particulary more sencitive to it then her, I can control it to an extent and even sometimes feel what my friends far away are feeling by focusing in my room. As well I am able to have a pretty good idea of what people are thinking about. I will admit for a time I thought I was crazy until I accepted it, it part it has made my life difficult and has a bad hand in my ❤ life. But I think it is worth it in some point. It gets stronger and kind of easy bye the years then again I lerned I had it wen I was 11 and now I'm 16 but I can control it to an extent of my will hope some of you find it use full 😉

Im really not shur when it started or if I had always been this way, but around The age of 13 or 14 I started sleeping much deeper and I started to have dreams about events that hadn't happen yet, only problem was that I would wake up exhausted and un able to remember the dream. Right before the event started I stryed remembering the dream and remember everything that was going to happen. The thing with emotions and the effect it has on me like everyone else here, annoying and at the same time kind of cool, I can sense what they are feeling and how some expressions are fake to how they act. One other thing that happens that I haven't read here is a little thing but I'm not shur if it happens to you. When your surrounded by people that are really mad or people extremely sad I can't Stand it I feel sick to my stomach and feel as do I'm going to pass out, I hate it. And. I think the last thing or I hope it's the last thing that's odd is the fact that as I'm falling asleep and feel that sensation were you fall into a hole, I wake up from it and a lot of the electrical appliances around me turn on, I really don't know if this is similar to that of other people or if it's common around "psychic people". If you do msg me

I had this ability when I was younger, at first I didn't understand it, I thought maybe it was a coincidence or just wrong judgement. But as I grew up I started to realize it is not a coincidence and that I can feel emotions of others. It is a difficult gift to accept because at times you are feeling something unpleasant about yourself because of others around you which leads to feeling insecure. It is like reading somebody else's diary and not everything the person writes about you is good and reading negative things can really affect your life. Having this gift can either help you or hurt you but I choose it to help me even if negative emotions comes to place. Just remember to know who you are and not the other to control your true emotions so therefore you cannot lose oneself. It is nice to know we are not alone and we share this one gift.

I have this ability as well. In time you learn to control it, like I did. It started when I was very young... Younger than yourself and I am now 20... It took 10 years fo me to figure it all out... I hope you can do it in a shorter time... Good luck.

I too am 14, can feel others emotions and can pick up on patterns in different people, my freinds have started to seem suspicious, as I have often told someone what another person was going to say, I have also been able to pick up on others feelings but I have little control over it, it seems almost instinctual, but does anyone have any tips on controlling it? Being able to use it at will?

Yay! I'm not the only one, I seem to be able to feel emotions aswell. I just googled this in hope and found this.

I always thought it was just because I was particularly sensitive to body language. I aswell am 14 and its really weird.

I'm 13 and I have the same thing as you. I believe I've had it all my life, but just resently have I taken any mind of it. I feel what other people feel (whether they are hiding it or not) all the time and hardly ever know if what I feel are my emotions or somebody elses. I have "panic attacks" because the stress of my emotions builds up from not being able to get out and I just break. I'm so glad other people are "emotion drinkers" (I like to call it that) like me it is such a relief. I'm not crazy! 😁 I don't mean emotion vampires by the way that's something completly different I think emotion drinkers are people who feel what others do, but don't take any energy out of them like emotion vampires do, well I'm getting off subject but this is just so exciting for me! Like I said I'm finally happy I have an explanation for what I feel and why I get so stressed:) thank you!

I needed to see if I could speak with someone or find out some type of information, and I found this site.

From a very young age I have found it hard to be close to people. The main reason for this is because when people touch me I feel their feelings. I have had a very hard time in my adult life being in close proximity to other people for the very reason that it's like a surge of electricity that runs through my body.
That may sound sexual, but I do not mean it to be. It's as if the persons emotions take over and invade my mind.
It can be the slightest thing from someone grabbing my wrist, touching my back, slapping me on the knee, a piece of the persons body touching me accidently.
I'm only learning to now not let it affect me so much.

I know that others on this forum have said that they feel what someone else is feeling as well. I wonder if this may be something that other people on this forum can relate to. It's hard for me to be in a club or a bar, a lunch room because of the energy in the particular space. I can feel it to a degree that makes me feel on edge. Different rooms have different energy to me.

Well, I'm new here. I think I have this ability... And I want to know how to handle it. I've been feeling this since a teen but know I feel it more.

My experiences are related to people here and I feel this more when I'm around people for a long time. I almost can predict what they are going to do next. In a way it is nice because I can help them especially when they feel they are not being understood. But, on the other hand, I need to know how to control it because I get too stress out. I'm starting a new job... I want this job and I want to keep it but I don't want to feel what they feel all the time. So far, I'm preparing for it... By planning extras activities that are relaxing but I don't know if it is going to be enough since I'm going to be handling it like "stress". Also, I'm starting to notice that I'm becoming a loner... If it wouldn't be because of the part-time job I have and my husband... I would be along with my cat the whole week.

If there is something that I need to know, learn, or do please let me know.

the same thing is happinging to me and I have just turned 14. It's starting to scare me because I know everyone will think I'm atension seeking. I was also worried that I was the only person like it but I'm so happy I'm not. The only problem is I live in the UK. I'm glad I found this website. I would have been lost without it!

I'm 25 and it's something I always thought was just inside my head but I truly feel as though I can sense people's emotions, I can read their body language and I have loose jarred visions from the past and the future? I don't even know... Maybe I manifest them myself? But if someone I know is in danger, I won't even have to be in the same room and I can feel them... I can feel their pain and their's...interesting...I still feel like a rookie though.

I, like you, have both of those gifts. I don't sense their emotions though. My feeling seem to become what they feel. So basically I can say "I know how ou feel" and really mean it. Somethimes I hate that gift because I feel horrible things I wish I didn't. And with your prediction thing. I have predicted my cousins death, friend's brother's suicide, and my friend's cancer. I didn't get it all like a vision but more like a... Anticipation until it happened. I can't explain it, but I believe you understand:)

im 14 and I think I have that ability too
I can sense when someone is feeling sad,angry,happy etc. But I can also feel what they will do or what they have done kind of like mind reading (I have practiced mind reading a little but couldn't do it)

Example a week ago my friend tried to talk to me as a girl with a fake MSN, he had planned that and I could feel someone trying to trick me all day and then when he talks to me on MSN I knew it was him, he denied it but the next day he told me the truth

I am currently 16, I started developing this ability about 3 months ago, I have always tried to help out my friends with their issues, but I realized one day that my smiling friend seemed overwhelmingly sad and distraught, I asked her what was up and she said she was fine, but I later found out her dad had died the night before, that was my first experience and I can feel others emotions and I can feel the emotions and energies in places, for a more experienced persona, what is the best way to start developing this skill?
