Getting Wrapped Up Into Things

I have a heart that aches for people that are hurting, that are in need, that need just a bit of help. I have a hard time saying no, because I never want to say no. I don't like denying people help. It just rubs me the wrong way.

 

But as a result, I can end up getting myself wrapping up in events that I have no clue where they started or where they will end. But that's who I am. It's what I am.

 

I help people.

 

And sometimes I find myself suffering for it.

I know what you mean. I feel terrible anytime I have to say no. Sometimes I feel that's one of the worst things you can do.

Huh, so I'm not the only one to feel like this. I remember when I used to help people all the time on the internet, such amount of stress and heartache exhausted me to no end and I wont be surprised if it took a year or two off my life. I eventually did one of the hardest things I've ever done, and had to just abandon it all for the sake of my sanity and health.

I think a lot of us are like that. I personally seem to have quite the "help the broken bird" streak, and I wish I could go back in time to smack my 15 year old self on the head and tell him to stop allowing himself to be used as an emotional crutch. That way I wouldn't have certain experiences inform who I am... but then I wouldn't have certain experiences that rather heavily inform who I am.

 

If I stopped helping people the way I do, it probably would do wonders for my stress and anxieties, but I couldn't do so in good conscience. Even if those people anger, frustrate, stress, and annoy me... I can't find it within myself to not stick my neck out for them. As I've said to multiple people: you really have to earn the moment I give up on you.

 

Probably not the most healthy lifestyle :P
