If you have read my other post you will know that I have a strange thing where I know when something is going to happen and stuff. Well I also am kind of empathic a little, I think.
Since I could remember I could always feel these strange feelings when I was around certain people. If the person was happy I would get a strong sense of happiness within me, if they were sad I would get this deep feeling within my stomach and even sometimes cry. It never really got my attention until recently when I noticed it happening more frequently.
I can walk into a room and look at someone and right away get how they are feeling, and pretty much know how their day went. If I go up to a friend and I feel like they are sad I will be like "what's wrong" and they will say "nothing". That bothers me because deep inside I have this feeling that something is wrong with them, and then I would keep asking until they tell me.
Sometimes it really bothers me, especially today. I'm 16 and I went to a wake for an old babysitter that I haven't seen in 8 years, and my sister and I were really close with her four kids who were different in age but all older than me. I have not seen them since I was 8 because I moved away and we lost contact. But when I walked into the funeral home I was overwhelmed with an intense feeling of sadness and grief. I wanted to just scream out crying. My stomach started to hurt and I could feel myself starting to cry. But it was wired because I myself wasn't that sad, yet, I just got overwhelmed with every bodies emotions. Well when it was my time to say my condolences to my old friends they all started crying when they saw me and my sister and my mom, and that was horrible. It was horrible for me because them crying made me feel so sick and I wanted to throw up and cry. But then when we all started to talk for a couple of minutes all of the pain went away and a very happy feeling went through my body and I could not stop smiling and I looked at my old friends and they started to stop crying and began to laugh and smile.
I felt that they were no longer sad for their mothers passing and were just extremely happy to see us.
I just wanted to know if stuff like this was common for empaths or its just normal for humans.
