We sometimes turn it all off. It’s a self defense mechanism. We feel far too much. We sense what others are feeling. Indeed, often times we feel it.
I’m not talking about magic, or some ESP nonsense, in the supernatural sense. I’m talking about people with finely tuned perception, most of whom have suffered a great deal and have experienced the gamut of human emotion.
There may be something “extra” about it, but I don’t think it’s necessarily supernatural at all. Dogs can sense mood changes. Literally. Perhaps it’s a smell, or something. But it’s a natural thing.
Anyway, empathetic people tend to experience other’s suffering more than other people do. For that reason, certain things are exhausting for us. If we can’t avoid those things, sometimes, we have to turn off the feels completely.
Perhaps others have found a middle ground. I haven’t seemed to be able to do so.
It’s not like I pulled the plug early. Day after day, warning about the same things. Providing evidence. Getting scoffed at, mocked, and abused – by Catholics, Republicans, and my own family.
I tried to quit, but I cared too much. Twitter did me a favor, and cut me loose. But, I’m keeping it in the “off” position, because the pain is just about to begin.
Still, no matter how thick the walls I’ve been building are, the video below made me very sad tonight – not because they’re athletes. The athletes are simply getting attention because of all of the witnesses.
They’re working their hearts hard. That’s what athletes do. But, they’ve injected a defect, and can no longer do so. Consequently, I’m not surprised.
It made me sad because it confirms what is happening, and what is to come.
It also made me sad because most of the lunatics in the world will blame it on the COVID instead of Trump’s abortion derived MAGAVaxx.

I peek on social media less and less these days. Whenever I do, all I see is some very good people saying the same things over and over again, and achieving absolutely nothing. Sadly, some of them get very little interaction at all, yet they spend all day, every day, doing the same thing.
It’s a toxic prison, and I’m glad I’m free of it. Visiting just makes me feel like I wasted years of my life trying to warn people who will never be warned. Ever.
They don’t care about anything except for creature comforts and winning. Well, they’re “going to get tired of all the winning.”
I was on Twitter for far too long. Perhaps you have been too. And, perhaps you should consider cutting out before you get as far under the fig tree as I have parked myself.
