If I could have one wish, just one, I would wish for a superpower and I would use that superpower to steal from people. I would use it to steal their pain, even at the expense of making it my own. I would absorb everyone’s suffering and I would free them of the shackles that life has bestowed upon them. I have never felt more useless than when I’ve wanted to turn someone’s pain around and there was nothing I could do. Seeing them happy would compensate for all the pain I’d have built up inside of me. Seeing them happy would mean the world to me and knowing that I helped would bring me peace.
Does anyone ever feel the need to cry? I’m talking about literally feeling a need to cry for no particular reason. I do; I sometimes feel the need to cry and I think crying is just as important as laughing. You don’t have to be sad or depressed; you can be perfectly happy and still have to cry sometimes. When I haven’t cried for a while and feel the need, I just picture all sorts of scenarios, be they happy or sad, just to make myself cry. I feel liberated afterwards and sometimes I even learn things from the experience. I learn about what genuinely moves me and why, and it helps me know myself a little better and realize how I feel about certain things that I’ve never really experienced or had to think about.
