Was I too busy when young to care about what others were going through? Was I just praying for them, (a quick prayer for sure) and continuing on changing diapers and giving bottles and more importantly, was I selfish?
That’s what I asked myself last night. I am passed the Menopause by a few years, but still cry a lot. I don’t cry as much, but I am officially a crier.
These days when I hear of something sad or sorrowful or hurtful that is being done or is happening to someone, I of course pray for them and then I ‘feel it’….I am almost consumed with sadness or sorrow for them.It could be anyone.
I don’t remember ever feeling sympathy or empathy like this before for others….I am glad that I am able to do so now, but on the other hand, I wonder if it’s normal.
I feel like a sin eater or something….
