I feel the same way. I can write it, but I don’t really understand what it feels like either. I was very lucky in how I was raised and with the advantages I had when I was younger, and now still, I guess. I don’t think it’s necessarily a liability. I can be an advantage too. It allows you to see things with enough distance to recommend what works, rather than getting overwhelmed with emotion because you understand exactly how someone feels. Probably depends on each case, but, overall, I guess being born an optimist is a blessing!
