I dunno if other empaths deal with this or if this is just me, but online, people have a tendency to not read what I wrote and go on in response to something I never even said. In my online fan group, the members tend to not read clearly what I write. I could be asking a specific question and all the responses would be about something I didn't even ask. This happens everywhere online and it's happened so often that aside from getting on my nerves, has me wondering what about me causes this?
And not just online, it happens in life where I can explicitly say something and the person I am saying it to takes a whole different meaning from it. It ties a lot into the whole misunderstood thing we empaths go through. What is that about? Why is this a thing? I find it annoying, to be honest cuz I feel people are so quick to respond to something I didn't even say and it makes me wonder if they are paying attention at all. How can you be responding to something I did not say or write or wasn't even thinking about? Do my creepy empathic words confuse people? Do I have people under my spell? What?
I feel like I have to write a preface with everything I write that states before you respond, make sure you have fully read and understand what you are replying to. It happens so often that I don't feel like there's any other way for me to be understood.
