This quote is very me. I realise I learned this young. I am aware I have these skills to a greater depth than the average person, and I learned it to survive the first 20 years of my life. I accept this skill level and I accept other people don’t understand it.
Most people don’t understand what they haven’t experienced, or skills they do not personally have. I therefore understand, people will doubt my capacity for discernment. I’ve been told to trust it. But, most people don’t pick up on behaviours, cues in people beyond a shallow level, and remain ignorant of them, don’t pick up on red flags. And ignorance, is bliss, for many.
I also realise these skills have furthered my empathy capacity. Again a level of skill most people don’t have, as most people only have sympathy (some not even that) and falsely believe sympathy, is empathy.
