    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...

    I'm Too Nice

    I've spent most of my life being taken advantage of. This is because I'm trusting and caring of other people. Too much so. I wish I could develop a tough exterior and not be so affected by the issues of others. Case in point, when stories of animal or child abuse come on the...

    The positive side to this,

    is that when someone I know has walked almost the same path as me I'll try my hardest to make it easier for them. I go out of my way to remain their friend and if they are going through a crisis, I'll be the first one there. Sometimes I screw it up by getting too involved or I...

    Always....

    If I truly care about you, it is unconditional. Even if you lie to me, backstab me, take advantage, act moody and thoughtless, I still care. And I hate that. It makes me come across as weak and like I have a sign on my head saying *Take advantage, do what you want to me. I will...

    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...

    but I'm sure it's a very common experience. Very rarely do I connect with others especially those I find judgmental. Very seldomly do I find a man who prays. Someone who loves and is honest. My heart is broken. want is the truth. When I have nothing left to say, I wish you well...

    Working with Alzheimer's patients has

    introduced me to loss. I care for all of the residents I am blessed to visit with every week. They unwillingly call me their daughter and I tear up when they hold my hand and ask me to never leave their side. But what happens when I'm forced to let them go?
