Hello to anybody who reads this! I'm fairly new to this forum, so I hope that I'm posting this in the correct place For a while, but especially lately, I have had what I can only describe as 'memory flashes'. I will be allowed a brief flash of a memory - places I have never seen, laughs, even emotions. I see 'memories' of places that I'm sure I have never been or seen in real life, such as fields or villages. Of course, this could just be an overactive imagination but it all feels so real. I think what makes me more confused is the emotional side. For instance, not long ago I felt a wave of happiness and thought something along the lines on 'This reminds me of when I was a boy' - naturally this was followed with a 'wait, what?'. Again, this could still just be my imagination. However, I also have the feeling of missing somebody that I mustn't know in this life, or at least not in the same way this life. For example, I am an only child but I feel as though I should have siblings. I find myself lonely and lost without them, as if they're supposed to be here beside me. I'm sure a lot of only children feel this way but its so intense, and at times so unmistakable that I can't help crying (which is a bit embarrassing I have to admit). I also feel that I had a close male friend in a past life who is not with me in this one. It seems that I can remember his smile or moments I shared with him at times, although I can't be sure. Again, this comes under the memory flashes category - I'm never allowed to have an in-depth look into it all because they're gone in a split second. That's all I have to say, but I'd like to know if anyone else can relate to these feelings, or if I'm just being silly. I apologise if some of this is hard to understand, it's late and I have a seasonal cold so I'm a bit whoozy haha! Thank you for reading though!
