Sometimes, I am absolutely ridiculous.
I have a problem--there are times when books, or television shows, or movies affect me a little too much.
When something sad happens, I feel sad. And then I can't shake it for a while. My mind just turns it over and over, and I find myself trying to put words to the emotions that I witnessed. As if by writing them down--even mentally--I might somehow better understand it.
I just finished watching a show on tv, and I'm feeling embarrassingly distraught.
I guess this is why I will never be a counselor, doctor, or social worker; I'd be a pathetic heap of sobbing blubber by the end of the first week.
Maybe I ought to work on that.
