I'm not generally one for ghost stories outside of movies and video games, but since talking to one of my friends who had had experiences she convinced me to submit my story here and ask for advice.
Lately the doors in my house have been opening and closing sort of strangely? To the extent where even if there's no possible way for them to be pushed open (i.e. They're locked and there's no breeze and no one's home) they will anyway? It doesn't really happen at a set time, but especially today they've opened and closed a lot, since I started telling people about it.
Though when I asked politely if they could stop for a while so that I could finish some work without interruption, the door closed softly one last time and didn't open again for another few hours when I was reading a book.
However even if it is a little unsettling it doesn't seem very harmful or mean in any way.
Yesterday, my parents were arguing and fighting and started yelling at me about who knows what and it got me really upset. Usually I don't cry over things like this as it happens often, but I couldn't help it so I went in my room and closed my eyes and cried for a while. About a minute later, I heard the door to my room open and close very gently and turned around to find no one there; but the atmosphere in my room had turned very pleasant and comforting and I really felt better.
Once I have woken up to see a dark figure standing next to my bed, but I didn't really feel threatened in any way and went right back to sleep. In looking back on it I might have felt an initial shock, but that was about it.
I've also occasionally felt another presence when walking through my house at night or I'll think I have seen a shadow of someone out of the corner of my eye during the day.
It doesn't feel like the usual uneasiness you feel when alone in a house, and I honestly think there may be something else here?
Does anyone know what this might be?
