I had rather a remarkable little incident today. I was waiting at a bus stop for a bus (obviously) with an elderly woman i'd say around late 80's. I of course was my usual emotionally f**ked up self thinking about pain and suicide and bieng paranoid when I noticed she looked at me for a few seconds straight in my eyes. The look she gave me was a warm look and she said to me "you dont like yourself do you." by this I was kinda took by surprise yet kind of wanted to tell her the truth. I looked back at her and smiled and said "no." she then said "I know. I could sense your despair." by that I kind of smiled at her again just kind of happy someone else could understand me. "your a handsome young man... dont worry you'll be fine." then she smiled at me and I smiled back and said "thanks." shortly after the bus came. This little account brang me understanding from people. I think the fact she was elderly and was more experienced in life and people probably gave her the wisedom of knowing what a person in despair looks like and of course was kind enough to talk to me a little about it which i'm willing to bet probably alot of people couldnt tell or even care if they could. Do you people think other random passers by or other people in your vicinity can tell if someone is in pain inside? like in despair? like maybe its a 6th sense. Your thoughts please.
