I am extremely empathetic, so much so that it sometimes annoys me because if someone is upset, I quickly become upset as well.It also works with anxiety. If my mom is anxious (which is often) I become anxious even if anxiety has absolutely nothing to do with my life. I can easily tell if someone is upset and sometimes I can even feel why they are upset. Although I can read people very well, my anxiety immediately thinks that anytime anyone feels uncomfortable or upset, that it is my fault. I have trouble figuring out what is my anxiety and what their body language is actually saying.
