I posted a week ago about how I was feeling other people's emotions and it was confirmed I am an empath. But, it's getting out of control. I have no idea what I'm doing!
I'm not sure how it developed seeing there's no history in my family AT ALL. I've always been able to understand people. Put myself in their shoes, but never like this. Until I was with my friend and we're talking and I just looked her in the eyes very intensely, really focusing on what she was saying and I felt her emotions and that's where it all began. Just out of the blue it developed. The only thing I can think of is that my friend sees spirits, She can see them and talk to them. I thought maybe one of her spirits gave me an ability or something? I'm not sure,
I don't think I even feel my emotions anymore. It's everyone else. When I'm with her, I feel EVERYTHING she feels. When she's dizzy I'm dizzy, when she's excited, I'm excited. When she's crying, I'm crying. It's ridiculous. I feel what everyone else feels, but it's EXACT with my friend.
My ability is fading away and I really don't want that to happen. I was hoping maybe someone knew how to control it? I want to have it. It's amazing, but I also would like to know how to control it. I've been able to help some people with this ability and it feels great. But it also has it's negatives. For instance: I read someone who was very homicidal and I felt like killing someone. Or when I'm around someone angry I feel like I need to punch walls and I feel like screaming at people, but I personally don't feel that way. It's not my emotion.
Like I said, I don't want to lose the gift. But, I also would LOVE to know what I'm doing!
Any advice would be great!
