Sounds like someone I know…

That person. You know the one. Who lives in their own world. Oblivious to suffering and challenges of those around them. Much less disasters taking place in the state, nation or world-wide.

A part of me is angry with them for how oblivious they are. Another part is jealous. Imagine how much stress they are eliminating from their life by being ignorant.

It is like they live on their own planet.

Even pets are more in tuned with those and the world around them.

I would never want to be that disconnected. However, there are moments I wish I could turn off my knowledge and care.
