So I've realized something interesting. I'm really sensitive to people's moods and behaviors. So just being around someone who is a bit sad, makes me sad. Actually, not just someone who is sad,but someone that I have a close connection to. What makes it worse is that I'm told I'm a good listener so I'm the confidant and I take in all these different feelings all the time.
The great thing about this realization is that I know now that I can separate what I feel and what is just mirrored and so everyday I feel more like me.
