It's a weird experience but it happens all the time. I know when someone is hurt inside like someone is being abused at my school. For instance, with my friend (let's call him "Chase") Chase, I know that deep inside he is being abused by someone. I also know he has had a horrible life. I also know when I say something or do something weird, let's say I did something wrong, I can tell that everyone's emotion changes.
Most of my family has it too. I can tell what people are feeling. Mostly I can feel sad, mad, sorry, hurt, and all those deep feelings. It's like I can feel it deep in my soul. Like right in the middle of my chest. It's confusing. Does anyone feel the same thing? It's really weird. I also know my best friend's grandfather molested her and I can feel the sadness.
Sometimes when I walk into a room It's like someone punches me in the chest because the feeling hits me so hard.
I was also at a basketball game and a nice man started walking by. The emotion hit me so fast it hurt. I started crying and had to go to the bathroom so no one could see me.
I still don't know what happened. But my theory is, That man was in the war and something happened. That's what it felt like. Then I got back in the gym and stood on the balcony waiting for the contest to start and I could still feel his feeling. By then I thought I was imagining things and I was looking around for him. I wanted to cry. Little did I know he was right beside me. I told my mom when I got home and she just laughed at me! Help please! Has anyone ever felt this same feeling?
