and this is how it is.

You're not just born empty of emotions. Free of guilt. It doesn't work like that. Something or the other happens, a really big incident, that alters your perception and leaves you changed for a long time.
Its just like making a Horcrux. You can't make one till you actually do something cruel enough to split your soul into parts, and only then can you feel no pain, because the harshness of the act was so extreme that the outcome ceases to make a difference.
So I wonder, whether everyone possesses a conscience. Because I think we all have the ability to reason, and emotion enough to judge what feels right for us and what doesn't. I fail to understand, how a person with feelings; someone who feels hurt, love, loss, happiness and grief... Does not feel guilt. Fascinating, truly.
