    Try

    Is there a too much? I care with all of my heart about most happenings in the world. I want to help everyone I come in contact with but there are times when I know I should be focused on helping me and that’s just not an option in my mind.

    I care too much, and I end up getting hurt.

    I'm always the one let down, left behind or given for granted and I hate it. I'm always the one who tries to make up after quarrels, who makes the 1st step (even though it's hard), who loves more in a relationship. I'm always getting messed up, weak, broken. I wish I didn't care...

    Caring Too Much About Those Around Us...

    One very good way to put yourself in a position to be hurt and ignored.....is to actually care, and to care too much. After working where I do for going on a year next month, I speak to hundreds of people in the morning, lunch time, and late afternoon. Evidently, I am just like...

    I'm pretty sure that I care too much.

    I get invested in people and I get disappointed. I set myself up for it.

    I care too much. For everyone,

    my family, my friends. But I end up getting hurt. I always try my best to make people happy, cheer them up and it disappoints me when I have no one around to listen to me. I remember every birthday, every anniversary and yet no one remembers mine. Every time one of my friends is...

    Why Do I Care?

    I care way too much about everyone around me. I am my elderly mother's carer and I put her needs and wants before my own, (I don't mind being her carer and wouldn't have it any other way really) but my brother's make it so difficult for me. They use my Mum and thus use me, and if...

    Caring is a good thing

    when you need to control your impulses and keep yourself from doing selfish, stupid actions... but that's not exactly my problem right now. I just wish that there was some sort of "I care" switch in my brain somewhere. Something that I could just flick off every once in a...

    I met this guy in a concert.

    He's from England, but has been living here a long time ago. This is carnival time, so things went a little bit faster that I thought. We were a little bit drunk, we had sex, it was good. Then we have sex the next day, again. Everything was fine until I lost my phone (and his...

    I Care About People.. Do You?

    I've always cared too much.

    I'm paranoid about what I say to people because I don't want to hurt them. I care too much about the way I look I care too much about how someone feels I care too much. Period. Which causes a lot of problems because I immediately try to fix other people's problems to...

    Said it wasn't for the sex,

    still dipped on me. Said you were really down for me, still dipped. Said you changed, still dipped. Said you really wanted this, still dipped. Could've made me your baby mom man, still dipped. Did this twice to me, and I still stayed.

    The problem with me is

    that I care to much. It doesn't matter if someone has hurt me, abused me, abandoned me, if I know that person, or if I don't know the person, I will always treat them the same way I treat those I love. If I see them hurting I will dedicate my time to hearing them out if that's...

    I don't know anymore.

    I find that there's always so much going on with me that I seem to neglect, all because I care more about others well-being than my own. "Are you okay?" seems to be my favourite question, one that I never seem to ask myself at times. I've been told to realize that I'm important...

    After a while it becomes exhausting

    and you just want to take some time for yourself. Always worrying about everyone else and taking care of their needs can take its toll. Wish someone would take care of me for a change.

    I'm always caring about others

    before myself. Whenever I see someone upset all I wanna do is help. Everyone deserves to be happy. If I can help one person and make them smile then that makes me happy. Even if I'm upset I'll go out of my way to help someone because everyone matters

    Always Your Way

    One of the people I love most in this world, is probably one of the most difficult person I've known. I would go out of my way to do anything for this person. I care for them and always take them into consideration in everything I do but the problem is, they are not as...
