Your brain could be a modern art masterpiece!

It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Fix'd.
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

Live Real by embracing how you feel.

Empathy's not the only thing you feel.. Nor does it have some special place on a pedestal to be Engaged in at the expense of other things.

Live Freely, Genuinely, openly, spontaneously.

Don't try to force yourself to conforming to some particular standard of how you ought to feel.. That's what you did when you were saying you convinced yourself to feel differently than you did/not cry.

But in putting Empathy on a pedestal.. you might very well use That as the standard which you use to Mutilate yourself.

If you're empathetic.. be empathetic. If you're X, be x.

Accepting how you feel will always bring less struggle than combating how you feel... For your feelings flow forth from your nature... and your holding to some Unconnected/unnatural standard isn't going to change your Free-flowing feeling.. It's just going to put you at conflict with yourself.

Don't think about it too much. Let it be what it is.
"He who does not know how to put his will into things at least puts a meaning into them: that is, he believes there is a will in them already."

Metaphysics:
"The science.. which deals with the fundamental errors of mankind - but as if they were the fundamental truths."

Here is my artist's statement, I find it more meaningful.

Dancing danzig ladies breast
Supple Cellophane out in the west
Why the caretaker sweet sweet hamhorn
She killed my child, day it was born

Dimpled brown eye serate my tounge
smash the child, the deed is done
like a rock, zapped cherub's lung
Daylight fall, afternoon go, and night come

Mind worm a-diggin a hole in my soul
Zip line to the living mummy crampin' bowl
Silver spoon gut my nobby layered heart made of coal
Floppy backed mole eat the crabs on a boar's wool

Things a-cramipin my fetus' tarantula
talk like a moose, eat the pope garganutia
Papa's whiskey scrape the paint
Dribblin' discharge flow down, feel the taint

Scarlet scream pumpernickle overlay
Deadly patch catch snatch Bombay
Twisted eels dot the gate gargoyle
Keep away Red Baron, roll till soil

Musty stench, the wife is dead
clutching her body, the panther maggot said,
"Like the dew dripping from a penguin's eye,
the rancid slime marks where you lie!"

Ovarian soft cell constipation
Lisped curler meat hooked destination
Minnesota dirt swallow black tortoise
So wrong so right, titty rigamortis

In my bed!
Non living dead!
Right felt sted!
Ooze maggot head!
Muckluck!
Muckluck!
