I can't help feeling this way but...

I am! I really really am. I just can't take the pressure anymore! I can't help but wonder though, does this make me a bad person?

How can you be a bad person because you don't want to save people? Who ever told you that was your job in the first place?

I think we all need to serve eachother and love others. But to save others? I just don't think we are equipped to do that. I mean even parents aren't able to save their kids. Some try, but c'mon, the kids are a mess if the parents never get out of the way.

Each person should take responsability for themselves. I mean sometimes we all need a little help but that's just to help us stand and move on. Not to do it all for us.

If you feel you gotta save others you're hanging out with a bunch of people that can't take responsibility for themselves, or you really need to be needed.

I wanna be needed sometimes, it feels great. But I'm not gonna make a career out of it. Then I'd be posting what you're posting right now. :)

Hate to sound patronizing, but I think I know what you're one about SM.

I got sick of 'saving someone' for a while. They crashed and burned.

That's something you need to decide for yourself. You can be sick of it, but are you sure you want to stop saving people?

I don't know ya Hellme. I feel guilty if i don't help, but on the other hand the pressure is weighing down on me. What's even worse is that some people will fight your attempts to save them every step of the way, even when they are the ones coming to you for help. Currently there is this case, that has asked for my help to stop them from doing something, and i am wary of it because even though i want the person to get better, i know that the moment that they are tempted they will do it again. I am contemplating not caring at this point, just letting them slide into oblivion and walk away, telling my self it's not my problem and that they should take responsbility for themselves and their actions. But, somehow i feel that it would be the equivelant of selling your friend out. Of not being there for them. And i am not the kind of friend that's like that. u know?

Oh well!

There's no easy answer really. I know how you feel, and I don't know the answer either - I switch moods on a daily basis.

I feel for you bro.
