Unwanted Help - Jessie T. Wolf — LiveJournal
Do not stop being nice, no matter what!
You know Jessie, it seems less and less people today try to be nice just because it makes them feel good when other people don't have to suffer from something. Unfortunately it isn't possible to always help out someone either for multiple reasons. People are not always completely open about all of their problems. You may see only the tip of the iceberg, while under the surface is a massive amount of stress from multiple sources that may be unable to be changed anytime soon, or if at all. I'm sure you remember where I'm coming from there, no, my problems have not been entirely physical either. Now I'm trying to pull myself back together psychologically. Sometimes you might have to find a way to dig deeper into a person's problems to try to help them, but also you don't want to completely piss them off. I remember well some of our past conversations. And at some of my moments of being rather weak, and your remarks, I never thought you were evil or anything like that. You actually can't hold a person's hand all the time. Being more openly honest about myself for once, I believe being a friend of you is a major reason I'm still alive today. I have a few other friends I should thank, just for being a friend, if nothing else. If you think that you were never helpful to me, that's wrong, and I'm sorry if I acted in a manner that made you feel that way. Don't give up, there's an answer, even if not a very good one, for every problem (OK, maybe I've just been watching "Trigun" too much lately....).
Sorry if it seems like I'm suddenly barging in here, and I hope all this doesn't sound too corny. And sorry for sounding hypocritical, I rarely discuss the full extent of myself, and here I am saying you should do this to people.
