How do other people's emotions effect you?
Hello, I wanted to ask other empaths about how they feel other people's emotions or how they react when they feel or experience other people's emotions. I know that for sadness from other people I will start feeling sad and get the knot in my throat like I'm about to cry, even though I'm not actually sad. With anger (and I think this is because I really try not to get angry and I don't let myself hate people) I cringe feeling the emotion... and I can immediately tell that it doesn't belong to me and I usually get really bad anxiety and I start to feel claustrophobic and squeezed.. But happiness is really weird for me. i'm usually a very outgoing and happy person, sometimes a little bit too happy, but when I get around people who are happy, it feels natural to me to be extremely happy. Like after I leave a conversation with an extremely happy person, I'll go back to a normal happy state and sometimes even feel drained from the whole thing... it's weird but I love it tho...
Now I do have some other things about feeling other peoples emotions... I feel like I feel other peoples hate towards me. Like if someone for some reason dislikes me, i literally feel tension between us, or I'll feel this almost like a hot pressure sensation from their direction (I don't know if thats normal). I've also noticed I know when people crush on me too tho... i've never been wrong before but I think I finally found someone who could be "the one" and I'm terrified that I'm wrong about the feelings from this person so I definitlye want to ask other Empaths if they can feel other people crushing on them.. also, is it possible for us to feel people looking at you, like REALLY looking at you... like when you stare at someone because you like them or you're forming some sort of judgement about them..? because I swear I can feel people staring at me, but I never want to look to see if they actually are staring at me... i've always thought i saw them looking in my direction at least when I get the feeling, but I've never actually looked to see if the person is staring at me... i don't know... anyways if you guys can just leave what you feel with other people's emotions or how you react to other people's emotions and we can have a discussion maybe about different feelings we experience around different people feeling different things... I think it would help us all maybe?
