I have discovered a new way to describe how empathetic I am. I feel as if I am a sponge that is able to soak up everyone’s emotions. I believe that this is one of the reasons why I don’t particularly like telling people how I really feel because I don’t think that they need to share my emotions. I don’t want to burden them with my emotions even though I absorb the emotions of everyone around me.
Another thing that I have noticed that I am not sure if it has anything to do with empathy is the fact that through my life, I adopt parts of others personalities or traits. For example, just a little while ago, my friend brought to my attention that I copy the YouTuber Amazingphil when I laugh by sticking my tongue out slightly when I laugh. I never did that before I started watching Dan and Phil on YouTube.
