Empathy from the normals
A normal will not know your struggles as you do. I grew up under some of the worst enviromental factors known. When I had children I wanted them to appreciate what my wife and I provided. It took a while but I realized they could not know it it like I did. Secondly I realy did not want them to know it like I did.
I believe if you are lucky those closest to you empathize well by trying. They will not know it like you or me unless they live it. Does anyone really desire that? It is tiring to encounter ignorance from someone I love and care about. But I pity them that they can not see what I feel is obvious. I am not like I was before.
