The venoms of empathy

You are sitting  with a group of people.  you realize that you are experiencing empathy!  You are merging with these people in their problems and weaknesses.

But suddenly you feel drained and empty,  you feel trapped by your own empathy, corpses feeding on your blood, you are being put down, you feel lead weights around your feet, getting absolutely nowhere, going in endless circles and confined in a narrow frozen box!!

Your own empathy is poisoning you. The venom is piercing your heart, erasing your limits, killing your characteristics, you are left helpless, a bundle of empathy feelings. You feel so weak that you cannot escape but your rebel spirit is so powerful that you let go and walk away...
