Awe, thank you <3
I know what you mean about caring so much can take a toll on you, and I went through a phase not too long ago where I had actually told myself that I would stop caring so much. Because I’ve honestly been this way my whole life. It’s just in my nature to be such a sympathetic and caring person for other people, as I put myself in their shoes as much as I can when trying to help people. And when I told myself I would stop caring so much, I realized that I was robbing myself of who I really was. Not to mention, the feeling I get knowing that I’ve helped someone to feel better makes me feel… Well, it’s an indescribable high moment for me. The fact that I can make a difference in someone’s life is payment and thanks enough for me, and I can’t believe I ever tried to convince myself to stop caring. It’s tiring, but the end result is worth it.
There’s too much hatred, pain, and depression in the world, and if I’m in the position to try and do something about it, even if little by little, then I’ll do it. And I appreciate you sending such a sweet message, my dear. Just know I’m only doing what I can, and I only ask for you all to pass it on. No thanks, no awards, just keep being strong and showing others that there’s always hope <3
