Strange Encounter - Hurt for days (I am new to this)
Thank you very much for your answers so far, this is really helpful and I'm very glad I found this community!! I doubt people who are not 'affected' by this would understand. I will definitely check out Trevor's book as at the moment I want to know everything there is to know
I think the two of us do have a strong connection, it's just hitting me so hard because before this, we really did not speak for about 10 years, but I know that he liked me a lot back in that day and vice versa and he even mentioned that he drove out that day especially to try and meet me. Anyway, I know now firsthand what he is going through - he is nowhere ready to meet anybody 'new' in his state of mind - but it's good to know regardless. As I mentioned, I think he is angry/disappointed with me for leaving so abruptly and I may feel this as well, lots of negative stuff. At least I can now be sure this aches are not mine and I can actually deal with it with the techniques.
Thank you also for the tips on ridding myself of these feelings, I will try them out, I try to spend a lot of time in nature so will actively seek that these days.
I also have the impression that we may be able to feel when someone is thinking strongly about us i.e. a lover/husband or a relative/good friend especially etc.
Thank you, it will be an exciting journey that's for sure but I do feel so much better recently (apart from above problem), I wouldn't want it any other way
