I've found that I don't care about anybody I'm around, including those I have grown up with and lived with my whole life. When my uncle died (who lived with us for a little while) I didn't feel anything at all. I never say "I love you" to my mother because that would be lying to her. The thought of anybody in my life right now being seriously injured or dying doesn't really affect me at all, but I know it should and I know it is wrong because society tells me it is. I would never harm someone else because I know it's wrong, but I can't bring myself to love someone else. This extends even into "friends" I've had my whole life. I still live the act though.
