This will make me sound like a bad person...

This week’s The Walking Dead did something shows rarely do…make me feel something. I mentioned it a little bit in a comment on the recap but it’s still on my mind. Obviously spoilers for the latest episode.

If I had been in Tyreese’s place I would have seriously considered leaving the children behind every single day we were together. I don’t have children or any nieces or nephews that I know of. I haven’t had to deal with children for the long periods required for me to have developed the kind of patience needed.

At least right now pre-apocalypse I know I still have enough of my humanity left that I would instead grit my teeth, whack a walker a few extra times to burn off some frustration and get through the day with the kids. Ditching them would be effectively killing them and that’s not something I need to add to my list of personal demons.

But I can’t say what kind of person I would be after everything went to shit. I would like to think I would hold on to my humanity but surviving long in that environment is not for the soft, weak or nice. I can’ t honestly say that what I know I wouldn’t do now is still something I wouldn’t do under different circumstances.

Or would I end up feeling broken and without hope like Beth or just tired of it all like Daryl?
