Do I need new shock absorbers for my soul?
It seems that the past year has been fraught with news from friends, relatives, colleagues, etc. that has been shocking to me. For example, I learned over the weekend that my long-time dentist pled guilty to child pornography and will be spending five years in the slammer (he copped a plea). And that news has really rattled me.
Likewise, I’ve gotten some news from friends or about friends that really shook me to the core.
And it’s made me wonder if I’m broken in some way. Has age dulled my shock absorbers? Or are people just simply doing crazier and crazier shit these days? How are your shocks holding up?
