I feel a lot of empathy for Eri. A lot of people who are gifted or have power must feel alone and different because they stand out so much from the average person. This is something I know all too well, especially as someone with autism. And I can relate to feeling invisible at times – nobody notices me even though I am doing really good things like taking care of my grandmother while my mother was sick (or something more important). But in a way, that’s kind of nice. It makes me feel special sometimes.
So yeah, being strong doesn’t make everything bad seem okay anymore than being a poor underdog confers infinite worth on an individual disconnected from worldly concerns without healthcare or living wage or other safety nets. It’s not like Eri is Trunks with no care in the world except he doesn’t know why Bulma loves Yamcha instead of him.
