I can just say I'm a Pisces and if someone knows about the signs they get it fast. It makes things easier to explain and I leave it at that usually Laughing

Meh. Blue, what women find attractive changes as women gain wisdom. In other words, young girls is stupid. Giggle

I think I might be what y'all are saying but I call it something different. They are not just drawn to me though. I am drawn to them. Because of my religious beliefs, I call it the spiritual gift of mercy. It was much stronger at one time than it is now. I felt like God took some back so that I could survive mission trips into poverty stricken places. I still had to curl up in the corner by myself and cry a while on that first one.

I use it all the time at work. I will know when someone is hurting without them saying a word and go to them. I feel their pain. Sometimes they can't receive it/me because the pain is too deep and I am unable to help, sometimes can't speak to them. When it's that deep, I can't keep my emotions in check and have to cry just for my own release/relief. Thankfully, my co-workers accept this in me. Actually, I'm certain at least one other coworker (my boss) is the same way. After the tornado, I heard so many stories at work that I felt like I was suffocating, like I was being buried under it...same thing during the period after 9/11 when it was on TV/radio so much. It was just too many people's pain at one time for me to handle. I know it's not about me and it's so much worse for them because it doesn't go away, but that really is how it feels at the time.

I also sometimes feel overwhelming compassion for people that most people hate due to their crimes. It's a supernatural thing that I don't understand at all. The first time it happened I ran away from it, didn't want to do what I felt compelled to do because I was afraid I'd make matters worse. I will always regret that. I think I was recently being prepared because it happened again but I felt no compulsion to go to this person. I have promised God that if it happens again, I will do what he asks. The first time I was supposed to tell her God loved her, hug her and tell her everything was going to be okay. That may be a little heavy for non-believers. Smile

When I first found out that I had this gift through a spiritual gifts study at church, I was first of all glad to know I wasn't just nuts...haha...but it didn't feel much like a gift. I didn't want to lose it because it would have been like losing myself, but I couldn't keep it's effects from my own mind and soul. I had to accept it as part of who I am, understand that I would be living with it whether I ran from it or embraced it...so might as well begin to use it to the fullest. I wouldn't give it up for anything now. Being able to love people when they desperately need to be loved but are too broken to ask is a wonderful beautiful gift. I will never take it for granted again.

Good grief! Sorry so long! blush

Joy, you nailed it. You're "one of us"...lol. Hug
And this time of year it is especially difficult. I have seasonal depression, but very little of it is mine, i absorb it from others. But i also pick up a lot of happiness = mood swings.

I debated with myself on whether to post this or not. It is a little sappy but I mean it. I am thankful to have met Joy, Lmm, Puf, Sync, and ONo. You ladies are the kindest, most compassionate,supportive people I have had the pleasure of being associated with. I was told, if you care for someone you need to tell them. So girls, I care.
