Ever since my childhood I have always felt the pain of others intensely, the reason why I dont watch news or reality based sad movies/prgrams because it makes me absolutely morbid for quite some time… I remember when I first watched Schindler’s list… I was a very cheerful soul back then, used to laugh all the time, without reason mostly, but after watching that movie I could not muster up a single smile for a day.
I know in today’s world, after seeing the people who have shamelessly, relentlessly harassed me for decades (Without any reason known to me) I will have to admit one thing that majority of people have their own well-being, happiness, greed on top of their list and the place of others is a few step lower than that but I am a bit opposite to them, I can handle my own pain with a greater nonchalance than the pain of others.
i was quite relieved to know that there are lot of people like me out in the world, I just happened to be born among the wrong type of people, these people, that is we are called empaths. People often think us as psychos or sociopaths or sad morbid fellows walking around with a hanging face which we are not. Our only fault is we feel sad, very sad when we see others suffering.
So… next time you read me talking about pain please dont mistake it as self-pity… for God and our friendship’s sake 🙂
