    “I feel too much. That's what's going on.

    ' 'Do you think one can feel too much? Or just feel in the wrong ways?' 'My insides don't match up with my outsides.' 'Do anyone's insides and outsides match up?' 'I don't know. I'm only me.' 'Maybe that's what a person's personality is: the difference between the inside and...

    experience, but it makes me feel slightly better to know that there are others who experience life in this way. I used to be able to handle it, and even saw it as a positive. I felt it allowed me to understand the world better, to empathsise with others, and experience this life...

    ...so my depression is back.

    Why live without purpose?

    How can we have a purpose without a cause? How can we find a cause without a destination? How do you set your destination with no direction? How do you find direction without motivation? What's left to give motivation?

    The Empath's Curse

    The title says it all. For me, it is a curse when I become overwhelmed. Try as I might, I simply can not turn my feelings on and off. There have even been moments when I've become physically ill. I know now it is due to the fact that I turn all of those emotions inward...
