Self control

☕ Buy me a Coffee - Buy my books 📚

Paypal and Payoneer no longer work in my country, so I can't get money from Ko-fi, Gumroad, Buymeacoffe and ComicAd (the ad banners here).
The only tip jar I have left is Boosty. It accepts Paypal, all cards, any currency, then it converts it into rubles and sends to me. Boosty works the same way as Patreon + accepts one-time donations like Ko-fi and allows selling ebooks.

Empathy is a fleeting thing. When you're angry and your adrenaline levels are high enough it just stops working. You no longer feel pain: both your own and the others'. Only discipline and self control can help you then, and Rita has both, as Tim points out.


To paraphrase Terry Pratchett "emotional empathy can only take you so far, then you have to get out and hop."

Beautiful, grim, hopeful page.

Thank you :)
These two chapters about Rita and Jan were hard for me, in many ways. I hearly abandoned the comic because of them, and lost so many readers it was crushing.
I'm still a bit afraid every time I publish a new page from "Family curse". Your comments make me feel a lot better.
