Does anyone have this? You care too much about other people. I get into awkward situations and then can’t let go. I go back to check if the person is doing alright which causes misunderstandings especially with the opposite gender..why am I so screwed? Why can’t I be like the normal people? It happens with strangers too. I feel so stupid.. I make them feel so awkward. I wish I was different but my dumb brain is wired to be like this..
People should be so lucky to have someone go back and check if they’re doing alright. The fact that they’re not used to it makes it awkward. Well, let it be awkward. For THEM. Don’t feel bad about giving a rat’s azz.
It occurred to me, re-reading your short original post, that it is not so much that you feel empathy for others after interacting with them, but that you feel that you said/ did something wrong, then you “can’t let go” of the feeling that you said/did something wrong, and you “go back to check if the person” is angry with you or is thinking poorly of you as a result of the perceived wrong thing you said or did.
Am I correct? If you answer and provide me with an example, I will be glad to read from you and reply further.
