I have to believe that there is nothing wrong with caring about people, for me I care about complete strangers, loved ones, children and everyone. I have a big heart but when that big heart gets torn out I find that I am a little confused on when I should stop caring and stop giving. I swear it doesn’t matter how many times someone has wronged me or hurt me, I am still here for them always.
I like being that kind of person but at the same time it backfires in a way that I don’t know when to just say goodbye I am done. I love helping people but there are people out there who know the personality type I have and take without realizing how much they are taking from me. My energy level gets drained, my emotions fly low and I find it hard to focus.
I know that my sister is great at telling people how it is and walking away from situations but I can’t seem to find that skill. I have the skill of giving and giving till I have nearly drained myself and it’s then that I step back and realize that maybe I gave too much and have to stop. I think I am going to go to Jenni bootcamp … it’s what my sister and I joke about when I keep being way too nice to people or someone I know is being way to naive about life. Jenni always says “give me a few weeks with them, give them Jenni bootcamp” although I am not sure she refers to herself as Jenni … I am just about the only person who can get away with calling her that!
So there you have it … is there such a thing as caring too much? Does there come a point when you say goodbye and just live for you without worrying about that other person or people?! If yes, how do you do it without feeling horrible?!
