I feel worthless. When people who i call friends are feeling sad i can’t cheer them up. I can’t help them and find myself avoiding them cause i feel guilty.
Just showing you care is really good. I don’t have the answer for how to help 80% of the time, but just giving time can be super helpful and speak to someone more than you know.
Your feelings are valid, however it’s important to remember that you don’t have to burn out your fire to keep others warm. When I’m in this situation, I just let my unhappy friends know that I’m always there for them and that I love them. Sometimes that’s all they need.
