Shared Suffering

There’s a phenomenon I’ve noticed since the girls were quite little. Unless they’re fighting with each other, only one gets upset at a time. If one is sad about something, if one is angry about something, if one is tantruming about something, the other usually will not. The other usually will remain calm, even if the problem the first twin is experiencing is something that would upset them both. It’s as if they figure one crying about it is enough.

 

How much of a twin’s life is shared?
