Empathy is a emotion.
Emotions can be hardened by what one choose to learn. Learning meaning what we choose to desensitize ourselves to in media, movies, music this sort of
thing - life.
However people with autism, schizophrenia (a sub symptom of autism), as well as many other mental health conditions see things in a different way. The
onset of some of the mental health conditions start around puberty, which is confusing enough as it is.
I feel whole heartily that some people use more then 10% of there brain. 10% is what they teach as far as "normal" people use. I feel if you bring
up your feeling to doctors you will be diagnosed with a mental health condition which is not bad, but the medications I am very much against.
What people do not understand, they dismiss. All through the generations there is historical documentation on what you are speaking of. I feel some
people are more "in tune" with the energies around them. We are energy. Test this; stare at someone and in time they will look at you - just don't
get hit, some people take offense to this.
So who can say what you are experiencing right, or wrong? Who is to say you may not have some part of you who has taken this emotion which is empathy
and feel it so grand as to see what you see?
I can not be in crowds. I have learned to read people to the point that it bothers me to be in crowds. People communicate much more not by words, but
facial expressions, body language. Listening to words is fine, however proven fact people lie. While people lie there body posture changes. The
"mood" of the conversation changes. Some people are very aware of this. As I say people communicate without opening there mouths and I get tired.
Hence staying out of crowds.
It is possible your empathy button has been stuck to on. I get terrible migraines, seizures, even a head injury which has caused some of my senses to
get out of whack. I "feel" things much more then I used to, when I had control of the situation.
Anything is possible. However to find another who experiences the same things as you do, why would it matter to you? Fame and or glory, that is people
looking to you for anything is a huge respectability. To even have something others don't again, is a huge responsibility. People then expect things
from you, things that might just drain you of who you are.
Good luck finding what you are looking for.
