One of my best friends used to be depressed and suicidal, so I promised them I'd keep my phone on vibrate overnight and told them to call me if they were having an especially bad time. It worked x3 and although I don't really need to do that anymore, it just kinda became habit
I would totally be up for it,AS LONG AS THE OTHER PERSON WOULD DO THE SAME FOR ME. Because I know an incredibly low number of people who would behave in that way towards me. Maybe just one or two...or maybe even none (excluding my partner). I tend to get disappointed by how people call themselves your friends,despite they don't really behave as such. Like,idk...maybe it's me who has higher expectations,I don't even know.
Yeah,exactly! I have a very good friend here in Canada,and she keeps getting shocked by how much care I show for her,and she told me countless times that "she has never had friends who cared that much for her" but I mean,for me it's like,normal? Another friend I met here told me the same exact thing last semester. To me that's how a friend should be...I don't think I'm overdoing it. But eh,I always get disappointed by how other people treat me in return! That brings me down a lot sometimes...
I like being able to help people, but I mute my phone at night. But there is a limit, I mean I have a life of my own and I can't always help people and I have to care for myself. I love making people happy but sometimes and I often put others first but I'm not willing to do everything to please people, I just can't. I'll always be there for my friends though, but I need some time for myself as well
I chose yes. I want to be able to help people out, especially those that are close to me. However, it gets on my nerves a bit when people ask for help/complain and don't want to listen to what others have to say. I know some one like this who just wants to do things their way but then complains that they aren't getting the results they want. I still try to help, but it doesn't get anywhere :b
I do but at the same time I'm complete and utter shit at helping people who are upset lmao you probably couldn't pay someone to go to me I guess that'd explain why people aren't too keen on hearing me out when I have problems either. Suffer in silence and watch stephenplays
my goal in life is to make sure everyone I care about is happy. if having to stay up and take my own time to talk to someone to make them feel better, then I'll do it in a heartbeat. i care more about others than myself.
That's good, but you should care for yourself as well.
I used to want to please others too, but I cannot keep it up. I need to be able to retreat sometimes, to recover. The only person I am permanently available to is my girlfriend, but I can't do the same for others, especially with university being hard on me.
I do care for myself when I need it, I'm not someone to just 'waste my life away' if that makes sense. I just wanna make sure that the others around me are happy. as long as they're happy, I'm happy (:
and sorry about university being hard on you. school is annoying and makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes. >_> im only a freshman in high school, and people are saying it will only get harder. Nah it's hard enough I don't want it more complicated ;_;
I don't know what to choose. I usually like to help out or something when people I care needs me, but sometimes its just too much of that and I just want to disconnect for some time, to be with my self and my thoughts and just after some time to get back on track. So I guess I won't pick any of those answers, since none of them are wrong or right in my case.
