Last night my husband and I were having a discussion. I was feeling overwhelmed about a situation we had to deal with and not sure if I was doing the best thing. I felt him internally saying that I wasn't handling it right. He said out loud "why do you always take things personal?" Here comes the frustration part, where I feel perfectly clear in what I was sensing but he, not being completely in touch with his emotions, was thinking I was once again overreacting and taking it all personal. Do we empath's just have no hope when it comes to stuff like this? Dealing with people who are not empath's feels like we are speaking two different languages sometimes.
I wanted to scream inside because I couldn't articulate what I was really feeling. I felt trapped and alone and just wanted to shut down and not discuss it any more with him. He is so loving and kind, most of the time, but at this moment I just felt trapped in my thinking.
I'm still working on validating myself when it comes to sensing things. But I wonder sometimes if I am also being paranoid and it really isn't personal! I guess it's possible! lol
Does anyone else have this stuff happen to them?
