A week or so ago someone in my town was killed in an unfortunate tragedy. I never knew him personally but we had mutual connections. I don’t know why but I have been very affected by his death. I had no idea who he was before, but ever since this has happened I’ve been feeling strangely connected and I feel like I’m in mourning. This has never happened to me. I am emphatic, but not to this degree. My thoughts are consumed by this deep unexplainable anguish. The only justification I have is that we must have had some connection in a previous life. If we did before, why not in this life? Why am I feeling like this only after his death? There’s nothing I can do to resolve this loss. I can’t grieve with the family because they don’t know who I am! And I can’t tell anyone else what I’m going through because they’ll think I’m insane. What’s going on?
