Being that person so many come to looking for advice, it’s easy to get caught up in the problems of others and neglect taking care of your own. Putting effort into understanding a friend’s issues or family drama is time consuming, but you put in the work because that’s just who you are: the understanding one; the one who bridges gaps between people because you listen to both sides; the one who always offers a shoulder upon which to cry; the one who is there for every grieving moment, trying to ease the pain; the one who listens without judgment. You’re also the one who cries at home alone when it’s time for folks to reciprocate such caring behavior because none of them take time to appreciate what you’re going through.
There’s a breaking point for everyone in every situation they experience. I don’t think it’s healthy to always reach that point…
