Internalizing other peoples problems?
Idk if this makes sense but sometimes I think I hear my friends’ problems or bad situations and even stuff online and my brain like subconsciously acts like it’s my life and my problems. Like I take on the anxiety and can’t differentiate between what their situation is and mine. Anyone else have this? I don’t think it’s like an empathy thing either like my body physically absorbs the terrible situations of other people and can’t understand that it’s not my reality.
