Those of extreme social intelligence, Clinton, Cuomo... Others like them on the global stage or in the hometown, they might not even have the ability to see that they are exploiters, parasites, a cancer on the healthy body.
And my entire adulthood has been spent doing that in different ways, giving everything I had, not taking the credit of others, not stealing the spotlight, doing the minute-by-minute work of contributing to the lives of others. Not manipulating and exploiting others for my selfish ends, is almost all of us do. I have been and remain a doer, not a taker. I wouldn't have it any other way. That's where the joy is. But a lot of hurt and being used too. And that makes me feel better. And maybe give me some idea of a path out of this Gloom.
