    A friend, on EP or outside, is as a gift we receive. One places the gift on a piece of furniture to see it each day and for a long time. If a friend has a worry, we try to help it. If a friend is in sorrow, our shoulder is offered to him. To have a friend, it is like part of...

    One time I lit a bug on fire

    and it made a little screaming sound which was amazing to me because before I had just thought bugs and no other living thing but me had feelings. So I just referred to other people as, like, insects. Like "Oh your mailman! He works hard! For an insect." Because I had met so...

    Isn't This The Way We Are Supposed To Be Even If They Don't Deserve The Care?

    I do care about others feelings. My parents instilled some of this in me and it is mostly a know brain-er. But getting older and watching people not care anything about my feelings can be disheartening at times. I have had a so-called good friend work for me once that wanted to...

    I Certainly Do!

    How? I listen to them, fear for them, be there for them, laugh with them, cry for them, pray for them, be ready to help them, hurt with them, comfort them, and hug them.

    Sometimes I care too much about others feelings

    but they don't give a damn about mine. But I keep caring for others as this should be done with no greediness. This should be done for the higher being up there and he will be the one to reward me. Not humans.

    More About Others Than About Myself

    I care more about how others feel than how I feel. I have the feeling that everyone else's problems are more worse than mine and I shouldnt complain coz everybody else is more worse off. Thats of course not true and I know that. But I cant live it. And thats why I dont tell...

    Always, because i find happiness

    when they are happy or when they have achieved something that they like, NO JEALOUSY, for it poisons the brain, and blind yourself from achieving what is good, so i hope that everybody finds happiness in their own way, thats what i hope for all of you.

    Always There For People...

    I take it to an extreme.  Whenever someone sends me a 'signal' that they're hurting, I am there for them if they want me.  I can't help it.  Could be a friend, a worker or someone I just met in a bar.  I can't leave someone hanging without at least trying to...

    I Grew Up Caring

    As I was growing up we were taught to be caring of others. If someone needed a hand  give them yours always try to help when someone needed it lend a shoulder to someone who needs a good cry. I will always care for others feelings before my own.

    I care, but I have learned

    that I can't help them all, no matter how I try. Have you run across those who ask for your advice or help, and then they totally ignore everything you say and just keep repeating their original statement. Or they "yes but" you to death. I care. However, I refuse to be...

    Most of the Time

    In most cases I will opt to care about your feelings over my own.  More often than not, I find myself 'people pleasing' at my own emotional expense.  I tend to dismiss my needs and feelings to make those around me happy as I derive great joy and fulfillment in...

    I constantly worry that I'm gonna say something to make others feel bad. I know how it feels to get put down or just have someone make you feel like ****. I care how others feel... I really do!

    Sometimes More Than I Should

    I am I believe super sensitive to the feelings of others.  Sometimes this in fact causes more harm than good. I do though get to a point at times where I find those feelings to be so rediculous that I am able to let go of being so worried about fixing them.  That...

    Anything to Avoid Conflict.

    I hate conflict, especially with my wife. Whenever I say no to my wife about something she wants to do, which is very rare, she will get like a little baby and throw a fit, and get all quiet with me. I wind up giving in and saying fine go ahead, because I dont want to deal with...

    I'll admit there's some selfishness in it.

    When others around me are happy, then I feel happy, comfortable and safe. When others are in any kind of discomfort I want to help if I can and if its appropriate. The worst for me is when others are in pain and there's absolutely nothing to be done - example, my husband's...
