I take on everyone’s problems as my own. I’m certainly not going to be able to fix everybody’s problems and getting rundown by that inability so I can’t help even myself ultimately puts me in a worse place than I was to begin with and means I can’t even be a shoulder for friends when they need one.
I’m trying to get to a place where I believe this in my heart and soul and not just on paper.
I’m trying, though. I promise I’m trying.
One thought on “I don’t know why…”
I did the same thing for quite a while, and it kept me sober until the old HALT thing came into play. I drove myself into the ground doing wonderful things for people. But I have to be careful because I get miserable if I get too hungry, angry, lonely or tired. Usually I would end up with all or 3 of those issues. And it nearly sent me to my grave. Keep doing what you’re doing in terms of writing it down and saying it. Fake it until you make it. I made it and the hand is there for you as well. Stay in contact with others and try service work. Commitments have a way of forcing our hand 🙂
