Im so confused. Im an empath and most of the time I only feel a persons emotions when Im not around them if I have a very strong emotional connection. But a few weeks ago I was at home and I felt a guys emotion (I can tell whether its a boy or a girls emotion) and I know it wasnt any of my family so I asked the only boy Im close to if he was happy and he told me yes he was. So I also asked my other close friends if they were happy, even though I knew it was a guy that was very sad and hurt. They all said they were happy too, so I had no idea who was feeling that.
Then yesterday I was at a festival with my bestfriend, her boyfriend, and his two friends. One of his friends acts alot like I do and before we only met once and I hardly ever talked to him so I know he wasnt copying me to just do it. I asked him a question about a scar on his neck that seemed fairly recent and he said he didnt wanna talk about it. Then his emotions hit me and it was the same exact feelings I felt before when I couldnt figure out who it was. He lives about 2 hours away from me so I have no idea how I could have felt his emotions when Im not physically or emotionally close to him. Does anyone have any idea how this happened? I really do feel lost and confused about this right now
Thank you and Blessed be.
