    How'd I get here? How can I leave?
    I have a callous streak. I admit it. Sometimes it alarms my better nature. Maybe it's just the way I grew up. No picnic. But I know I do have a good heart.
    I guess life can do that to you if you let all the bad get to you too much. Nowadays I just call it my emotional fortitude. Bear the evils of this world.
    Has anyone else considered this part of their personality?

    Its not so much where you are as when you are.
    I know I do. Its hard and its tiring and someday may not be necessary.

    Until then its the way I live. The way I teach others to live.

    you're either callous or you're weak. who wants "weak" in their personality?

    i'm callous when i have to be, or when it's fun. Like, if someone's hurt, and you have to make it more painful to help, empathy is not desirable at that point. Likewise, if someone needs help, and i can't provide it (my friend needs to borrow money or something), callousness is the only think keeping you from doing something stupid, or feeling like total ****...
