I've only seen a few stoics like you, JWB. Do you have problems with empathy, guilt, or humility?

(Because you might have the mind of a psychopath.)

no i thought of that but i doubt it. i feel bad for things when they suffer really. it's just that i got used to the concept so it takes a bit more suffering to stir **** up in me. when i was a kid was really sensitive like you guys but basically grew out of it over time.

I don't think I'd prefer that. I was practically born with a bleeding heart but it's shown me enough beauty to cope with the bitterness of pain.

it is what it is, not like it's a choice i get to make or something. but i just wonder if you guys have taken a close look at the world around you. i mean nature is the most cut throat **** you can imagine. so it's like you must either not know how things are or really hate the world to be that empathetic to the suffering of every living thing.

I think I do actually, in some ways.

I relate a lot to JWB, but I've learned over the years to walk the line between honesty and consideration of other peoples feelings. People tell me stories about ****ed up things and I can rationally understand why they feel that way, but I don't appreciate or share their feelings.

I basically trained myself to become the way I am as a defense mechanism from being hurt. I can't say it's better or worse it's just who I've become. How I feel about things changes all the time with life experience.

i feel empathy though i just don't get it as easily as some of you i guess. i've never said i don't feel bad for people. people think i'm a psycho cause i don't care when a cat dies.
