Hey guys! Hope all is well.
Recently, I seem to be picking up on a few things I never really seemed to notice before. Peoples feelings, when they are being truthful, when they
are lying, when there happy/upset or angry/content, amongst other things.
A few silly examples would be knowing who's just text me without even really thinking it over or looking at my phone etc. I seem to somehow know what
my friends are thinking, there's been so many times where I've suddenly come up with something out of the blue, and my pals say "Weird, I was just
then thinking that", in fact, this happens more often than not. I seem to be able to suss peoples worries out and get to the bottom of them lately, or
know if they are elaborating or telling lies which would be impossible for me to know until they are proven lies (which has happened a lot with a
certain person I know, he happens to be going through tough times and has turned to alternate substances to somehow deal with it). Another really
strange thing that happens more often than not, is when I get a phone call, it seems like I pick the telephone up a split second before the call comes
though, and its in my hand buzzing. This usually happens when I'm thinking of someone in particular as well, for example I was looking through some
photos the other day, and a picture stood out of this one person, and kinda struck me a little, I started to mull it over in my head for a bit
(reminiscing 'nd that) and they called me a few minutes afterwards.
Some of the more prominent events are quite personal, and I'm not too comfortable discussing them online or even offline with most people, so you're
going to have to excuse me
I'm not a very emotional person, I'm not very good at comforting people when they are in trouble, upset etc, I don't even try putting myself in their
shoes and attempt to understand, I just listen to what they are saying and I somehow get them and know what's going on in their heads, which then
makes it easier for me to communicate with them and add a level of normality and mutual feeling. To an extent, I seem to feel a slight amount of their
emotion, but not enough to actually change my mannerisms. I find it hard to offer general support because what I say is usually what I know they want
to do, if that makes sense, and sometimes its not the right thing to do as such.
I've been chatting away to a few people I know about these kinds of things, and it seems it happens everyone to an extent. Just that "knowing" feeling
you get sometimes, it's just like I'm starting to feel it more and more, which is odd. All I really want to know is other peoples experiences like
this, if they feel comfortable sharing them I'd like to hear more. I'd also like to know, if there is something there, how could I develop them into
something more? I'd like to be able to do something positive with such a trait.
I'm not claiming to have any "special talents" or anything, I'm just interested as it's something that's just slowly become apparent to me, and
naturally, being a curious person I'd love to learn more.
Thanks for reading!
