EMMO If you’re anything like me, you’ve been there before. You’re in the middle of a conversation with someone you care about deeply, and the next thing you know, you’re telling them that you’ll never see them again. Or maybe it’s a friend or a loved one that you’re talking to, and you feel like you’ve just lost them forever. It’s a really terrible feeling. And it happens all the time. It’s called “emotional contagion,” and it’s a real phenomenon. If you’ve ever felt like you were caught up in someone else’s emotions, you know what I’m talking about.
