  1. I see a lot of my path in the things you have described. I know that solitude is the cure-all for me. My husband laughs when his friends come over and my response is to go find a book and disengage. I have also found that empathy laden souls don’t hunt for problems we acknowledge too much for us to be nosey. Thank you for putting a voice to our plight.

  2. I feel grateful for reading this. There used to be a time when I wanted to turn myself into a robot, so that I would not have so much emotions. I felt my overwhelming emotion was such a weakness. The boss and colleague of the place I used to work constantly told me to control my feelings. I felt terrible about myself. Thank God I left there.
