Why can't I just sympathize? No. Instead, I must empathize. I hate it! It's so much easier to say "I'm sorry," to someone who's life is hell, and it's another thing empathizing with them and feeling the daily strain and stress of everything piling on at once. PLUS all the stuff going on in my own life.
There are a few ways to fix this, but they are all so hard...
I know what I can do, what I can't do, and what I don't want to do.
They all happen to be the same thing.
Until next time,
