Can You Feel It?
This has been a tough year...losing two family members...and Mum having a heart attack.
So maybe I'm emotionally sensitive.
But some of my online friends (that's pretty much all I have these days) have been suffering and I feel their pain.
Miscarriage, suicide, the loss of siblings, the loss of babies, infertility...
All of these things are so painful, and when I hear or read about people I care about dealing with them, I hurt.
My heart physically hurts.
My body feels heavy.
I'm enveloped in sadness.
Is this normal?
I'm sure not everyone *feels* others' pain.
My husband for instance, hears this kind of thing and just shrugs his shoulders.
I'm not saying I feel as bad as those it's affecting.
My pain is fleeting in comparison to those living with it daily.
I don't pray a lot, but I do pray for people who are suffering.
I pray that they are wrapped in angel's wings and feel the warmth, love and comfort of people who care.
So I'm just wondering if anyone else literally feels the pain of others, too.
Is it a personality type thing?
Is it a female thing?
Is it just me being weird??
