How much can I care?

I think a lot of us get caught up in our personal stories. We try, but our lives are so frenetic and we fail to see too far beyond ourselves. If we’re lucky, we can keep up with the family, friends and other acquaintances we’re keeping tabs on.

I consider myself informed. I watch and read news, from various sources. I talk to people and more importantly, listen to them.

I consider myself empathetic. But, as much as I try, I feel I can’t muster enough emotion for all the world’s disasters. I have always been a crier. I hear stories and I feel. I feel I can’t feel anymore tragedy right now. Not unless, God forbid, it pertains to me personally.

I know hope this doesn’t make me a bad person, I just think I need a break from the sadness and despair.

This is my first entry into Watercooler Wednesday.
