I'm not incapable of experiencing a vast array of emotions, so, y'know, I do... sometimes. I'm pretty sure there's a medical term for someone unable to experience anything other than whatever it is you experience.

I'm able but unwilling.

However, this statement: "someone unable to experience anything other than whatever it is you experience" is a truism.

Life is an opportunity, not a load. However, I have moved furniture with my friends. I sympathize with my friends and they with me and that is exactly why we avoid any frivolous drama and engage only in shenanigans. We do laugh at the absurdity of people taking the world too seriously, though. Frequently.

I wish I was as care-free. Or maybe I don't. If I don't care, then who will?

There's a big difference between 'care-free' and 'capable of dealing with one's problems so as to not need to care so much, so often, in such an unpalatable manner'. I wouldn't look to you as a model of placing the right amount of care in the right places, I'm afraid. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is clinically proven to be as effective as antidepressants for treating depression - effectively, thinking happy thoughts leads to happy feelings (bolstered by better outcomes due to fewer self-propagating downward spirals, I would imagine). Even delusion is probably more effective than whatever it is you do to yourself every day.

Correct care allocation is key. Your care is toxic. My cousin is often care-free when she's off her meds. It's a poor state to be.

I've never seen you off your death bed, begging for alms. It's like you're a professional alms-begger, but you don't have any money so you must be very poor at it. Try adding google ads to your begging.
