Her heart is breaking again. There is no stopping it.
She feels the pain of others.
I do not know whether to blame DNA or MOM.
No matter. It happens and happens.
One friend has a family emergency, another is dying, no water in Yemen.
She feels it all acutely. More than empathy.
Instead of thick skin she has no skin.
Intimately connected to the ebb and flow of others.
Highly sensitive people have no filter. They feel it all.
She will steadfastly stand with those in pain.
If I built a wall around her, she would bring it all inside.
It’s not sweet or noble. It is who she is. It will hurt her.
My Rescue Rose.
