Is this a sign???
Perhaps the validictorian speech asking you to see beyond.....meant for you to try to teach the administrators something and not just the students you love........
I deal with the universal feelings of isolation which come with being an empath by working. I flip houses, striving to leave something better than when I arrived. Afterward I can see, live in or drive by places I know are better because of my efforts. Planting things helps too. No matter what the vibe, plants and trees always fight to be higher, that makes me feel good.
