Those Tragic Souls...


Anyone with an air of tragedy about them draws me like a moth to the flame. Perhaps I like people who openly display their flaws. Perhaps some part of the darkness in myself seeks the same in other people. 


It is not so much a sympathy....it isn't my place to fix them. 


It is more a matter of empathy. In my mind I am always to some degree a bit cracked around the edges myself.

I'm the same way. I think it's commonality of experience, or perhaps I just have a masochistic bent and like torturing myself with unobtainable hopes.

Sometimes like does attract like.<br />
And sometimes only one who is similar can understand more deeply.

I see you as being sensitive by nature. Having empathy is a gift, to both giver and receiver...Blessings
