Too Much Sympathy

Sometimes it's hard to stand so much empathy. I love animals very much. And immediately when I see some ad from Greenpeace or WWF or Peta on TV or the internet where it says that some animals are treated badly and they even show some of them... I start to cry. I sign everything these organisations give me just cause I can't bear the thought of me being able to make a change and not using it... sometimes though I wish I could just look away and not cry all the time...

Just remember that those organisations have lots of subscribers, and that they don't necessarily need your money as much as they make out, or spend it as well as they could. Charities are businesses after all; I worked as a door-to-door subscription "salesman" over the summer and the sales agency I was working for took just over 6 months' worth of each donation as payment!

You sound like you have a very sensitive soul, which is a wonderful and precious thing to have. It's a hard thing to live in this world sometimes though. Part of thhe reason I became a vegetarian is connected to that.
