that they could sense, in a NY minute, other people's moods and see, too, how everyone else's personal trains derailed, because they #understand train wrecks

lots and lots of psychics come from dysfunctional families

broken people break in a million different ways and Humpty Dumpty themselves back together in a million different ways, too
you can be a psychic and not have a fucked up childhood -- although the drive to do it, imo, is somewhat "suspect"
and decide to be an astrologer or other type of "reader" because you think it sounds cool or you (erroneously) think it is easy money
but the next-level types of psychics typically have a disaster or two in their history (maybe more)

psychics live in pain and it is why most psychics want, at some point, to get the fuck out
because pain is the jet fuel to psychic greatness
and that is a formula no one particularly #enjoys
