My Emotions Are Controlling Me


I'm 13, so I'm emotional enough as it is, but lately everything has been so much weirder than normal. During the school days, I have been having many sickening headaches, to a point where it has gone way too far. When I have these headaches, I have been experiencing many emotions at once. These emotions include happiness, anger, frustration, euphoria, joy, and despair. Many of these emotions can happen within three hours in any given order. Also, whenever I am around someone, angry, sad or depressed, I almost feel like I know why that person is feeling this emotion, and I can't help but to feel this emotion along with this person. I have been telling my mother about my experiences, but she used to believe that I am simply being stressed out, but when she took me to a psych, he told me that I may be an "empath". I feel as if I am alone when I experience these things, and its just a depressing feeling. I really need someone to help me with this feeling, so if any of you guys know exactly where I am coming from, please help me... I'm scared and no one around my age can help me with my problem.

My mother always says I'm too emotional! Try listening to music which best suites your mood, it always helps. And I know what your going through, I was only thirteen not that long ago! I think that you could be feeling more than just your own emotions which-if this is the case-when you feel partically emotional, try to be on your own, that way it will make your emoitions easy to bear.

Good luck 😊

I totally agree with create_inspire_me...but I wanted to add to it. You should also do a search for how to ground yourself of negative energy. You may also want to go to the doc just to rule out any physical ailments.

Your truly not alone. I am also going through the same thing. It is a hard thing to cope with at school. Try yoga or some sort of meditating. We are all made for a reason, and having these abilities makes us even more special. You just need to learn to block the emotions out if they are stressing you out. But trust me. What we have is a gift, good or bad.

Much love and peace. ❤

Problems with emotion huh? I totally understand. However, I don't believe you specified whether they were your own emotion or someone else's. Oftentimes, it's hard to tell the difference. One way to tell if you're feeling someone else's emotion is by examining how it makes you feel. Regardless of what the feeling is, if you feel energized or motivated by it, you're probably 'feeding' off someone else. If you take a minute to clear your head and listen to your soul and you still feel the emotion, it's yours.

Being empathic... There are a couple of things you cane do:

1) Being around an animal helps a lot. Unlike humans, they won't experience more than one emotion at any given time... To some it up, there emotions are simple compared to our complex ones.

2) Being charged and fired up, it would be a good time to vent out emotions. Do something productive like working out, playing a sport, writing, singing, dancing, drawing, listening to music ETC ETC

3) The best thing for an empath would be to stay alone in a room, outside in nature ETC ETC... You can also do the above suggestions alone to. ETC ETC

Your going to be wide open to emotions everyday so you need to get used to it. If you feel like you can't handle it, go somewhere alone, where it's safe. And just stay there until your calmed down.

4) Try looking for where the emotion your receiving is coming from, it helps you focus on where it's coming from so you can block it out and mainly stay in tune with your emotions. If that's not possibly, look for your own emotion and focus on that feeling and calm down if you have to.

5) Make a shield or bubble deflecting all emotions besides yours or all negative emotions.

I'm 13 also (well about to be) I know were you are coming from. I have very paranormal experiances and can sense feelings of animals and kind of ghosts I think just like you can with people. I am an indigo child. Don't be scared. Sometimes it helps and I have been this way ever since I can remember. I found that glasses can help if you were them it brings down the headaches a little. Being an empath is very emotional and can be brought down from inheriting (I think that's what its called) that's why I cry everynight even if I'm not sad:) it just let's it all out.

Well...the most important thing is not to let yourself get overwhelmed by emotions, be they yours or anyone elses.

Also when you start to feel overwhelmed, take a deep breath, exhale (or you'll pass out...) and carefully examine what it is you are feeling as well as the current circumstances you are in and decipher whether the current environment is actually causing your feelings.

It may help to understand how you personally react to any given environment so you have a picture of how things affect you.

Remember...emotions are merely chemical reactions in the brain, they cannot control you unless you let them... Keep them in perspective and you can easily learn how to moderate yourself and not let yourself react so strongly to whatever is around you.

I was thirteen once... Long ago... So I have a good idea what it is like to or a young person to deal with emotions as well as having to shield oneself from the emotional energy of others.

We all, to some degree or another, are affected by the overall moods of either one person or the collective moods of a roomful of people. Some are more attuned to it than others.

I have found that sometimes what I thought was the emotional energy of another was really my own inner assumption of what I thought the other person was feeling based on facial expressions or whatever.

Feelings are not always reliable.
