being an empath
sometimes makes life hell
. you konw how you always sit and wish
you could hear what someone was thinking
about you as they smile and nod
at you? you usually cna't hear the *thoughts*, but you ooooh can feel the emotion
sent towards you.
but some days it's worth it.
a coworker had a SHITTY day yesterday. stung by a lionfish, serious roommate problems, customers giving her hell. you could *feel* how upset she was. it hurt to feel her hurt like that. but i could do nothing.
today, i had to go see the orthodontist. just a checkup. but i got out early. and went to wander the Target near work, because i didnt go on duty for nearly an hour.
wanted caffiene and sugar. wandered the candy isle, debatedbetween several forms of chocolate. finally settled on whoppers, a candy i like but rarely buy. just got them randomly, seemed right.
got to work.
whoppers are her alltime favorite.
the damn things made her day.
couldn'ta done more if i'd *tried*. if i'd tried i'd have probably made things worse.
but those silly little candies made just about everything worth it.
