What do you do if they do what hurts you anyway?

Well you know, that’s their decision. It isn’t my place to hold everyone’s hand and pretend like everything is okay, and will be okay later on. Because it’s not. Things are going to get rough, there’s absolutely no way around that, and to deny it is foolish.

If people can’t handle the hardships that come with what’s been given to them, then God forbid they’re faced with situations much worse.

I’m not saying that certain things are more or less painful to deal with than others, but to an extent, everyone needs to learn how to be able to be resilient. Resiliency is a tough concept to gain. I myself have struggled with it, but like I said before, I try my hardest. 

If they decide to ignore my support, then so be it. 

I’m not really that important of a person in people’s lives. I tend to care more about others than they ever care about me. Granted, I don’t show it as often as I probably should, but I do. I care so much.

What hurts you the most?

Seeing the few that I truly care about give up on themselves so easily.

It breaks my heart to see them throw away their talents or the inexplicably amazing person I see in each of them. 

I myself am one of those people, but I try. I try my damn hardest every day. If I didn’t have these people, I wouldn’t hesitate to just end it all. I would in a second.

But I don’t. I think of them and how much they impact my life, and how hard it would be for me to have them gone. That’s what keeps me here, alive. That’s what keeps me on track. So to see them going through hardships and taking such things out on themselves hurts me so much.
