My life is a roller coaster, probably a lot like yours. Some days are up, others are down, and some are a little of both. Maybe the spinning of the Earth is at fault. They say the phases of the moon can affect a person’s mood. I’m sure of that. Or at least some outside force plays havoc with my emotions.
I hate that I can feel alone with people in the room. I despise loneliness. But I’d rather be alone than with a person who causes me pain. I’m easily influenced by another’s moods. Is that empathy or sympathy. I can never distinguish.
Living on a roller coaster is hard enough. But when the person you live with is also on a crazy ride, well that’s just disturbing. Especially when you’re empathetic. It’s like you have two sets of emotions that argue with each other. “I’m more depressed than you!” “I’m happy, why are you not?”
Well, enough ranting…
