I don't want to fix you. I'd love to be able to hug you hard enough to make all your broken pieces fit back together, but you're shattered and I don't like being touched. So, when you need me, call. At three in the morning, while I'm at work or school, or in the middle of a holiday. It doesn't matter who you are. Reach out, if not to me then to someone else. If you look hard enough, if you really want to be heard, we'll listen. Always.

I love helping broken people also by sharing my own story and the things I've learned over the years through all my many, many life experiences. Some people want help - some don't want it or think they don't need it. It has always been a mystery to me how 2 people can go through the same experiences, yet their perspectives or so different - one sees their cup as full while the other sees it as empty. It's very rewarding when you feel like you've truly touched someone and helped them. It sort of makes all you've been through in your own life worth it - sort of like redeeming your sorrows. But most of the time it's just frustrating and they throw up barriers such as ridicule, silly banter, etc because they are afraid to connect with others in a serious manner.

I've both been at the receiving end of these things, and often have been the one with my guard up. And you're very right, unfortunately, that many people don't have any desire for help. You can't save anyone. But sometimes being there is the best thing you can do. Of course, there are also times when you have to simply walk away. Giving up is sometimes the strongest thing you can do. That said, everyone deserves a chance to heal.
