This DEFINITELY how old I literally 'FEEL' my heart is! I feel my own pain, as well as others' so intensely & innately without even really trying! I see it as a gift and a burden all rolled into one. I have an old soul.
The same could be said about people. Some people are nice, some are even nicer. Some are really special & worth writing about. Then there are those really really special people you want to write to & say thank you for making life better.
"as much money and life as you could want. the two things most human beings would choose above all. the trouble is, humans have a knack for choosing precisely the things which are worst for them." Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
