5. I did not know what depersonalization was

so I looked it up. Being detached from your feelings and thoughts, can be from trauma is what I read.

Just a thought on what you wrote, I think it is important to match what you have to offer or what you are deeply engaged with, to what you help society with. For instance animal rights, I read about in Washington State, a woman there single-handedly got steel-jawed leghold trap, neck snares, and other body-gripping trap outlawed with a petition on the ballot. While I wish I could do something like that, something so tangible, I don't have those talents and would probably not "feel myself" if I tried to do something like that. But I have a desire to write poetry about suffering of animals, and this would match my self I think, but it is a challenge to get on that road, and the benefits to society may seem slim, looking at it from the outside.
