My Mood: Tonight everything hurts

Unhappy Tonight everything hurts

No matter what I think of, , it makes me sad. There's too much cruelty in the world. Animals, children helpless individuals are being abused. How can humans be so cruel? It hurts terribly to think of people or animals in need of help.I'm an empath, so it hits me very hard. I feel others pain as my own. I wish I could cry but it won't happen. I don't dare to let go enough to cry.

This is just silly feeling. It'll go away. I just had to write it here.

I'm so sorry you're hurting so much, Calla lily12 I completely agree with you. There's too much cruelty in this world. Unfortunate we can't change the world alone. We can do small things to help those who are around us, though. Just help the people who are near you. Just try to do your best. Have you tried volunteering? Perhaps that could be helpful to you. You would feel like you're doing something to help. Although perhaps it could get too overwhelming for you, if you're an empath. That's just my opinion, though. I may be completely wrong. The final decision is up to you. Do you see a therapist? Maybe that could help. You could learn new ways to deal with your emotions. I completely agree with HopefullyLost1211. She''s given you some great, thoughtful, wise and wonderful advice. I hope you'll follow it. I'd suggest to read the article if you can. Hopefully it will be able to help you a bit. I'm so sorry you're going through all of this. I think it's great that you care so much about other people, but don't let it become too overwhelming for you! You need to take care of yourself as well. You deserve to get better and to feel good. Treat yourself well. Try to do something nice for yourself. You're just as important as everyone else. Remember that you're stronger than you think. You've got this. Try to hang on. You can do this! You're strong, I know that. I believe in you. Stay strong, Calla lily12. Stay safe and take care of yourself. I'm here for you if you need to talk about it. Please don't give up. Remember that we're here for you if you need it. Feel free to PM me anytime. Let me know if I can do something to help you. I'm so sorry you have to deal with this

Don't worry, we can make it! We have ourselves (the abused individuals) and we can make hell of a living... We just need to believe in ourselves.

I agree with you. This is cruel world to anyone who is weak children, animals.
But, not all of us are cruel and that is what is giving me a hope.

I am social worker in making! My empathy level is high until I hear from my clients for severe abuse and than I want to be a murder and kill all abusers.

Please, try look for positive people

If I had more energy, I would volunteer. I don't want to make a promise I can't keep..
I'm not sad for myself. . I feel others hurt. I wish I could "make it all better" for everyone. I DO have many regrets...things I should have done differently. That makes me sad, but I can't change the past.
