I am someone who picks up on the emotions and / or feelings of others. It is very draining. I sometimes feel like sponge to the universe, absorbing the emotions and psychic pollution that is around me. Most of the time I don’t even know I am doing this unless it is too late. Then when I do it is still hare to understand that the feelings I feel are not always mine. I remember hearing once that “Grounded people are rarely swayed by another’s feelings, even if they do feel them.”  Makes perfect sense. I mean it really does but it is not easy to apply this to myself which makes no sense because I do not want to be burdened with this anymore. I want to change…but I find it so difficult. Why is this????

There are times when I just need to get away from the world and people and hide in my bedroom. I am happiest there. I can breath.
