I know there are some individuals out there that can feel the emotions of others simply by standing next to them or with little or no interaction. I am one of those people. I have learned over the years the importance of crying- NOT because you are sad or upset, but to release. (Emotions manifest themselves in different ways and for some crying may not be how they choose to release) For me, crying releases emotions and vibes I have acquired in my spirit from people throughout the day(s) months etc— knowing and unknowingly. This is important for balance. Im not saying I cry every day at every sad song, but if the opportunity presents itself and I feel comfortable I do. My family will even tell me I knew you would cry lol I’ve been in a situation where I’ve felt emotions so strongly in a group of people and I’ve wanted to cry, but felt ashamed. I can honestly say it hurts more to hold the tears and emotions in then to let them go. When we cry amidst a group and they see /visualize our joy/sadness/empathy etc. This visualization may trigger something (whatever that may be) and they will respond (right in the moment or later on). This is a crucial social exchange. One must feel comfortable within his/her society to express emotion. We all are emotional creatures! Society needs feelers just as much as thinkers, artists, and the like.
Take pride in your gift! I’m always open to discuss personality and emotional intelligence. I know it can be frustrating speaking to someone who may not feel as deeply or with someone who is not emotionally aware. Bare with me though -just because I feel deeply doesn’t mean I feel as deeply as you may. Lol
Yet and still, the exchange is worth it.
