Perhaps I should have been a therapist. I have always been able to read people quickly, a skill that came from being the shyest one in the room as a child and adolescent, and also, I think, from seeing so much darkness as a child in people, seeing what they were capable of. I also know that it was honed even further in my late teens and early twenties both from my acting classes and from successfully hiding a drug habit. Trust me, learn to lie well and you will know how to read people well. Perhaps that would not go down in the books of advice oh "how o get along with others", but those are the things that made me as intuitive with others as I am.
"These fragile bodies of touch and taste, this fragrant skin, this hair like lace. Spirits open to the thrust of grace, never a breath you can afford to waste."

I like you, despise you, admire you. What are we gonna do when everything all falls through?"
