To deal with my Cassandra condition, which, BTW, I just heard about for the first time yesterday, on a completely unrelated forum, which is strange, I've had to adapt a more "eastern" view of death, which is basically what we're talking about for those that won't listen to the people that love them and have some idea what's going on. I respect those that say, "When it's time to go, it's time to go." If I tell someone I love, "Hey, doing that will kill you.", and they ignore me, I start detaching and as quickly as possible. I still interact with them and am as nice as can be but I just can't be interested in their survival if they're not. If people want to try to save people, great for them, go for it, but I've sacrificed too many years of my life trying that and have to do something different now, which is create the best reality I can with every decision and effort. Cassandras problem/punishment wasn't that no would listen to her. Her problem was that she was overly attached altering other people's fates.
