Can you tell how other people are feeling? Do strangers feel comfortable telling you their life stories? Can you feel physical pain or excitement from others? You could be a physical or emotional empath.
A way of testing your ability is to ask a friend to think of a life event that is associated with a strong emotion. Without them telling you anything, tune into their energy and tell them what you are feeling.
You may be sensitive to light or noise or crowds or even touch. You may need to set energetic boundaries by going outside or ensuring that you are not interrupted at work. Be wary of draining relationships in your personal life.
Remind yourself that you cannot and do not need to fix everyone else's problems. Something that you bothers you emphatically by someone else, may resonate with something that is unresolved in your life.
