Whats it like working at a bar then, do you have to sit through endless amounts of chatter from people who share their probelms with you?
I wish! If that were the case I wouldn't mind. Bar is hell. Once you've learnt all the stupid numbers of drinks combinations, how to serve them in a hurry..and where they are on the till, then there's a small change of relaxing enough to be chirpy and chatty to customers without feeling stressed, but even then you have a manager moaning at you and customers complaining at you, and a long list of jobs to get done in between busy spells by the end of the shift.
Fortunately I don't do bar very often. Its usually kitchen these days. Much more manual.. lots more cleaning..but one hell of a lot less stressful

Then you would care about nothing then. That alone could easily destroy you. And then there is the fact that people with damaged memories know something is missing, or how about if the thing you cared about was only partially missing. May I ask, why do you care about so little?
I care about little because I choose to.

For most people it isnt that simple. Most people, if anyone, actually has that choice.

Not very many people can actually disengage to the degree where they can decide whether or not they wish to care and that if they don't to simply walk away unhindered.

I disagree. Anybody can. They have to be aware and understand that they can, though.

They really can't; it is dependent on personality. To sat anyone can become so cold, clinical and distant on a whim is to also say anyone can happily decide to socialise in a loud busy setting. It just doesnt work that way.

I didn't say that everybody can be 'cold clinical and distant'. I said that people can choose not to care.
It isn't in my personality to be cold and distant etc..but there have been several occasions in my life where I have had to make a decision to let go of something and not care, and my emotions on the matter have obeyed my will. It has nothing to do with personality.

"Dealing with" and "not caring" are 2 different concepts. If you aren't acting in a cold clinical objective matter about something then you are dealing with it rather than not caring about it.

I didn't say dealing with . I said letting go. Letting go equals not caring. Once you've let go of something you no longer care. Now I'm not having this discussion anymore because we're talking about the same thing but splitting hairs and getting lost in semantics. And I can't be bothered.

In your opinion we are talking about the same thing, but in reality we aren't. Letting go of something means it doesn't take an acitve part in your life; not that you won't get pangs of emotion on the odd occasions you think about it. The not caring I am talking about is the not caring that allows, for example, you to see someone killed by a train and to feel nothing.

Human instincts can override it, and to get to the not caring point can be a hell of a road to walk down, depending of course what you are trying to care about. A dangerous road.
