    I don't mind caring about other people

    but i hate it when I loose that person. When i show my caring side towards them I just can't stop thinking about them.... When I try to text them and they don't text me back in like 1 or 2 hours, that side kicks in and I get worried and depressed. I don't like showing my caring...

    Loss Of Control

    I used to be the "got to" person among my friends. Whenever there was a problem that needed fixing or someone needed a shoulder to cry on, I was there. I was proud of my position, it gave me purpose and a sense of self-satisfaction. I never realised how little I cared...
