I guess I've never really thought about it this way before. It's just a natural thing for me, it's how I'm wired. It's one of the qualities about myself that I'm most grateful for. That I was entrusted with this Gift.
What others think of you is none of your business...if they're judging everyone else, it's because they're unhappy I'm their own lives...I've been guilty of doing that in the past...time to worry about myself and the ones I love...nobody and nothing else matters :-)
