    Hurt When I Know Others Are In Pain

    I Hurt When I Know Others Are In Pain because either I caused their pain or they don't deserve the pain even though they might be the worst person ever.Pain is by far the worst feeling and I've felt it for a long time and it's crazy to see someone else suffer too.

    My Brother Michael

    He was three years younger than me but we were in tune together more than we were with all the others. I don't know what it was, it just was. We were the only two with auburn hair, the others were all blondes. Maybe that was it.... No matter how far apart from each other we were...

    There are so many people

    who are suffering. I hate to see them suffer and often feel helpless for not being able to help them in anyway. I wish I could take everyone's pain so that no one has to suffer. I get emotional reading about people who are depressed,suicidal, severely ill, poverty stricken...

    Going through school to be a counsellor

    for Trans* people who have been abused or have addictions is something I really want to do. Though when people are in pain, I can't help but carry their burden with them.

    It Hurts Me More Than It Should.

    So I've realized that a very good friend of mine is having some issues. Then I noticed another good friend is also facing some difficulties. Then I notice someone else is facing adversities. It's just going on like this. Both online and off. I feel a strange ache when other...

    With Some Exceptions.

    If someone hurts me, I won't hurt when they do. When I say "hurt me" I don't mean saying something sort of mean. I mean when someone completely crushes you. I don't care if they get hurt. They had it coming. I wonder who I hurt to deserve to be in pain... Probably a lot of...

    It's Had To Detach Myself From The Suffering Of Others

    Sad And Helpless

    I feel so sad and helpless when I know my friends are suffering for what seems to be selfish motivations on the part of others. It saddens me that there is absolutely nothing I can do to help or change the situation. Why can't people just be kind to each other?

    What Point In A Person'S Life Where Need To End It?

    I often wonder when I read stories about depression and PTSD and other disorders. Its a highly complicated situation where the one who is trying to sort this out has so many layers of pain, memories of things that happened in the past. Depression is something that stems from...
