May I ask if you have any paranormal abilities that you know of?
I mean I can relate somewhat to your above comment. My mother is a paranormal therapist and I seem to have inherited some of her abilities.
Now it appears I am an empath, meaning when people touch me, I touch them or they stand close to me their emotions somehow bleed over. It can get
really bad in crowded places and can result in a sort of overload. Not pleasant at all.
At one point I started to become afraid of these foreign feelings. Most people don't understand but you just know that these feelings are not your
own. But the really weird thing is I can sometimes sense things around me that are actually not there, so it appears. Its hard to describe but it
freaked me out in the past. Like one day I was sitting behind my computer and suddenly started becoming cold and then out of nowhere I jumped up and
was looking around the room franticly and breathing very rapidly.
Even now when I'm typing this the thought of that feeling gives me the creeps.
So to get rid of this fear I just sort of accepted it as being part of me and also by convincing myself that it was really interesting instead of
frightning. This took me years and I'm just now starting to accept all this.
And it really helped as I learned to better shield myself from unwanted emotions and such.
Hope this helps.
