Elderly woman behind the counter in a small town.
I have a lot of empathy toward my fellow man. It's easy for me to put myself in someone's shoes and, at least in that moment, totally understand how they are feeling. I wouldn't call it a gift or something special because I hope everyone can relate and understand where I'm coming from. However, I do notice that there are extra special people who can see the slightest suffering or hurt, when it comes to others. Yesterday, when at the supermarket checkout line, the clerk that was ringing up my purchases, looked at me and spoke with a gentle voice. She called me, "Honey" a few times. It was noticeable that this elderly lady at the checkout stand was aware that I might be suffering from something that wasn't visible through the naked eye. She was being extra sweet and kind with me because she could tell that something was off. I've come across people like this a few times in my life. I don't have to have a visible handicap for some people. They just sense something isn't quite right, and they in turn, open up their heart to me. I think because I suffer from Paranoid Schizophrenia, I have such a gift. I can tell, at least I think I can, when other people might have something mentally wrong with them. My empathy shines through every part of my being when I come across someone that's suffering from any kind of mental illness. It's like looking into a mirror and seeing myself. I wish I had the power to change their lives, as well as, my own. My heart aches for people, like me, who are forgotten and marginalized by society,
