theres a lot of distance between the person and the event by the time they tell the story I guess. also it's in the story telling ability.
when I was a kid on a school trip I needed to pee but too scared to say so. got to ride a horse. yipee. peed on horse + myself. no one noticed or cared apparently, so was in pee clothes all day.
story telling ability 1/5. left out feelings. mostly just the facts. could be much better. plus it's mostly just sad, repeated theme of my life. me denying to myself that I have human needs, everyone not giving a **** and ignoring my invisible internal drama, reinforcing alienation, etc.
