I Care Too Much About People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 552 People

    Ever since my mom's passing,

    who was my best friend, I got to see who my real friends and family are, and not to mention how strong I can be when I bring my situation to Christ. The thing I hate about myself is that I care sooooooo much about people, put them first before myself, and yet when I'm in...

    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?

    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...

    I care too much and never get the same back.

    It's it just too much for people to take the time?

    I imagine only in my world this can be

    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...

    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...

    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...

    My "friends" struggle to remember my name

    but I would give up my life for them. Is it bad to love people when they don't even want you in their life? There's many things going through my mind when I think about how my friends don't really care about me. I can't stay mad at them even when they hurt me. I end up taking...

    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'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...
