Ever since I was a little girl, I have always felt this heart aching pain every time I see someone in trouble, feeling down, and etcetera. And I have also felt like a super hero when I am able to make someone happier, even if it is by taking the slightest smile or laugh out of them. Growing up I was not sure why I was like this.
