I tend to “absorb” other people’s emotions, almost like an empath would. It’s not unusual for me to walk into a room and immediately sense the moods of the people in it. That’s because I am very aware of subtleties — including facial expressions, body language, and tone of voice — that others may miss.
Pair this with my naturally high levels of empathy, and it’s no wonder I feel emotions that are not their own. As a result, I tend to suffer from frequent emotional exhaustion.
