Is it attention that drew me here? I percieved it to have been curiosity.
Since when has an outpouring of emotions been considered cheap? They enriched the one who has lightened their load. The outpouring is of no load to those who read your words and feel, for they perhaps have been in a similar situation and have pulled through and now have the knowlege to aid those laden. And feelings of being alone (noone to listen and speak to anymore) are common among many many people these days. It is an incorrect perception as there is always someone there, even though at times it may not feel like it.
I do not feel poorer for reading your words, since they have infact been the catalyst for thought. And to consider someones emotions as 'junk' would be quite callouse of me, and if I ever did so I would ask your forgiveness. There is not many things more precious than a bared soul.
We shouldn't envy each other, for our lives, possessions and our very selves are shaped by our surroundings and experiences (among other influences) and this defines us as unique individuals. Perhaps we do share some similar traits or habits, but we are still unique and thus experience life differently. So life for one even under similar circumstances may not be unbearable.
Speaking for myself, the only one I can truly speak for, I find that I have grown affectionate of some people who I have met on the internet as I do with the people I interact with in the real world. As such I care when they question or are in pain in it's many guises. I would like to say that I care for all, however I'm not sure it's possible for anyone to care for each and every person on this planet we call earth. The pain and fear's associated with each person on this earth is more than one would be able to bear.
Being me reminds me of my individualism during all my waking moments. In regards to anothers opinion; opinions are nice for the attention that they bring. people by being people crave attention sometimes, during those times even a negative opinion is attention. of course an opinion that is uplifting is nicer still, but these are rarely given for no reason. As to be expected, one has to earn them which is fair enough.
Greetings and salutations, my friend.
