Through out my whole life, I have always felt what other people are feeling. If someone gets embarrassed, I feel exactly what they are feeling. I almost want to start screaming at the person who embarrassed them. Sometimes I feel real sad to the point where I want to cry for them if they are being made fun of. Even to people that I don't even like. It seems that I totally forget about what I feel about the person and just absorb their feelings. It makes some of my friends mad when I side with the other person. I always seem to experience this when someones embarrassed, sad, or mad, and the feeling is so strong it feels like I'm them. Or maybe "I can step into their shoes"? Some people don't show that their sad, but for some reason I feel that they are. Then if they come up to me and tell me they are, I can seem to guess completely what's wrong with them. I study people sometimes and I can almost tell if I'm going to like them right there on point. I have done some recent searching on the web to see if anyone else has this, and it seems like its being an Empath? But I'm not sure if that relates to me, because I tend to just feel their emotions very strongly, and it doesn't benefit my day, instead, it makes my day a lot sadder. It seems to stick with me for the rest of the day. I don't ever tell anyone if they are annoying me or being mean to me, because I feel as if I will embarrass them and then therefore it embarrasses me. I never like showing off or being put on the spot even if it will benefit me because I feel like I'm going to put someone down. Could anyone tell me what's up with me? Am I just an emotional wreck? Or is this something that I could use to my benefits?
