Where's the empathy?

I'm lacking empathy these past few weeks. It's hard for me to take in so many people's issues. I've even found myself literally walking away or changing the subject when someone is talking about something that is going on in their life if it isn't something postive. I just can't take it. Maybe it's because I don't know the right words to say? It just seems like if it's not one thing it's another. Things are going okay in my life, so maybe I'm just trying to avoid letting other people's problems take a toll on me.

That's exactly what life has been the past...six or so months. I'm not really sure what has and hasn't happened. I just know that I'm here and I'm okay. There's been a roller coaster of events that go from good to bad to ugly to amazing and the only thing I can do is sit back and wait for it to settle. My heart has been torn into a million pieces and handed back out in smaller doses. I have found myself easily overwhelmed lately. I have had so many amazing opportunities and it's hard to believe that I am where I am in my life right now. My coworkers, boss, family and friends constantly tell me how talented I am. I still don't believe them. I have an amazing job & coworkers. I have amazing parents who have supported me throughout every step of my life. I have a couple of good friends who keep me from becoming the recluse that I try so hard to be. My eyes are focused on the future and what I want. Its a bit blurry but it's all I can do at this point. Dream. My goal of becoming a hair stylist has been achieved and now I need a new long term goal... platform artist? traveling gypsy hairstylist? I'm sure I'll find it soon enough.
