Alright, I kind of have two separate questions here
My first question is I'm wondering if I'm an empath. I can "feel" the emotions of people when I am around them. It's much stronger for people that I'm close to such as family and friends. I can feel strangers emotions too when I really focus in on them. I get an overwhelming feeling every time I am in a crowd. My emotions will randomly go from happy to sad to upset and so on.
An example of an experience I had is what happened last week. I was on vacation in North Carolina all week and I was with 15 other people. It was supposed to be a relaxing time, but the whole entire week I felt overwhelmed and exhausted. There was one night where we were all playing a bored game and I had to leave the room because I felt so overwhelmed. I spent most of the vacation outside on the hammock because I just wanted to get away from everyone and I felt so much better when I was outside, but right when I went inside with all the people I got the same feelings again. Do you think I am an empath?
My second question is I'm wondering if I'm being followed? I know it sorta sounds like a paranoid question, but a lot of times when I'm alone in my house I'll have an overwhelming feeling that I'm being watched. I've had many strange things happen such as the door to my room being knocked on and no one being there, waking up to find something walking in or outside of my room, and waking up to find my door half open when I ALWAYS close and lock it before I go to sleep. Also, the other night I woke up and felt/heard something breathing beside me. I got really freaked out and went to sleep upstairs.
Whatever it may be the weird thing is that I don't feel harmed or threatened by it. I feel like if it wanted to hurt me it would have done it by now. Those are just my thoughts though. I could be wrong.
