    I Want to Fix Something That I Can't

    I can fix almost anything if it's electric or made of wood or in the plumbing or in the computer or in a moter. But I can't fix extreme emotions/feelings when they get messed up. Especially if it's my fault to start with.  I wish I could fix everyone who's ...
