Am I Heartless?

It's not that I'm selfish. I care so much about people, and I try my best to express that. I'd do anything for the people I care about.

It's just that I'm the one everyone turns to for advice, counselling and sympathy. And now sometimes when people are talking to me I find myself thinking about my weight, instead of focusing on them 100%.

I don't mean it, and I certainly don't want to become self absorbed.  I am trying to think of other people and stop obsessing about myself and how much I weigh today and how many calories are in that meal... etc.

I think I'm just tired of everyone else now, because all they do is complain to me about their lives. It depresses me. I'm tired of listening to that. That's awful, isn't it?

while i don't share your concern about your weight, my own concerns are what distract me from listening 100% to my friends. but i think people like you and i just have to work through some of our own things, and when we do we'll have it all squared away.<br />

my dad once told me this nautical qoute: "you keep one hand for your self, and the other for your ship" <br />

you'll find that balance, we all do eventually.

if they are your friends you should listen to them but if you need to talk like about your weight your friends should listen to you too, i think that is why you have friends.......right ;)
