Going through life as I have with the “gift” or “curse” of feeling other people’s emotions with the majority of them being negative emotions does wear on me. I rarely get the ability to experience my own emotions because I walk around with a sack of other’s emotions on my shoulder all the time and that has resulted with my own emotional maturity being severeley stunted and the only way I’ve been able to get in touch with my emotions has been through experimentation and exploration with illicit substances. Some work better than others, and some have even more negative affect on me but now after 45 years of self medicating with every known illicit substance known to man I sit here before you at the same emotional maturity level of when I started my experimentations. Hi I’m Stephen’s emotions and I’m twelve.
Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far away.
– Proverbs 22:15
