I do see what you are saying. Sometimes I will find myself venehemently loving someone, usually their qualities I aspire too and love about myself, or peope that irratate me, things I dislike about myself being reflected back at me. Although it is more than just that. Quite often I do overidentify with other peoples emotions. I have been told that soo many times by therapists. It doesn't matter what the situation is, if someone is getting really upset I will get really upset with them. I will want to rescue them and if your really happy or hyper, I will mirror it. I am a human mirror. What a scary thought.
Essentially I need to be work on and concentrate on being present to conversations without becoming envoloped in emotions, just allow them to be upset, not take it on. I think part of that is seeing what it brings up for me, observe it but not go into it. Just being present to emotions without letting them overwhelm me, notice when I am projecting or mirroring emotions and stop.
