I have always experienced feelings that almost didn’t seem my own. This was especially true in an environment with groups of people. I could “feel the room” if you will. Both positive and negative emotions would come over me and I had no good reason as to why. I have since learned it’s an empathic trait and takes some understanding and work to control. I will be writing more about this in the future but for now I came across this great article on 9 ways to stop absorbing other peoples negative emotions. I would also like to say I think all of us on some level absorb and feel other peoples emotions, especially when they are negative. Be careful to maintain your own state of peace and happiness even in the midst of others negativity. Be Well.
