Still More Coolness

The Power of Mo Compels You!

I am not sure what it is about me that compels -- yes, compels -- people to tell me their deepest, darkest secrets. Most of the time, I'm okay with it. It provides me with a lot of information right up front that lets me make some decisions about boundaries in a relationship and that is good. But some times, it's just... mind blowing and slightly uncomfortable. Like that time when I met the mother of one of Jasmine's friends and within ten minutes knew all the gory details of her divorce and child custody hardships (and yes, this conversation did take place in front of the kids). Or like today, when I was getting a very relaxing spa package from a massage therapist who was busy telling me all about her issues from a rough upbringing and from a rough first marriage. The massage was great, but I left feeling a little bit more psychically drained than I did going in. The woman was great and my body feels wonderful -- yes, I do see how this could become habit-forming -- but I was left with the question of why I seem to invite this kind of thing. Maybe I should have pursued my original urge to become a therapist. I don't think I would have to work too hard to get people to open up.
