This site often makes me feel weird about how I don’t like things as much as everyone else.
I mean, I like lots of things, but I don’t feel very passionate about any particular thing or person (even IRL) or anything. I’m very good at feigning enthusiasm but I can’t honestly remember the last time I had an honest, visceral reaction that was just about how much I liked something or someone.
And then I see people talking about how stuff like a TV show makes them FEEL ALL THE FEELINGS and I’m like… I’ve never felt that way about anything that even mattered. I wonder what it must be like to have all of those strong emotions available to you. It’s like an eight-color box of crayons versus the 64-pack with the sharpener.
I’d say I hate feeling this cut off from the world, but I honestly find it hard to believe that most people don’t feel like this most of the time and it’s only a select few who feel all kinds of love and emotions always.
