I’m an emotional sponge! Has anyone else experienced this? If someone is depressed or anxious, it transfers to me.

On the flip side, if someone is upbeat, positive, and peaceful, I become the same way. But I don’t want my emotions to be dependent on someone else. I don’t want to take responsibility for other people’s feelings, and I don’t want others to be responsible for mine.

I can’t really relate, but one thing you can do is surround yourself with positive people. That’s always a good thing to do. And whenever one of your friends is feeling down, instead of letting that get you down, try to help pull them back up.

Brah. Just… Brah.

Are we the same person? (ENFP’s unite!)

But seriously, I’m the same way! Or if someone’s upset, you feel like you can’t go have fun until they are happy? It’s awful, but also great. Empathyyyy!

INFP, very similar. I then feel guilty as all getout if I DO feel good and swear that if I’m happy while my friend’s upset I didn’t deserve it and i’m making it worse.
But cognitively I know I need to stop thinking that. Do not be like me.
