Today I wanted to talk about something that I’ve been thinking about a lot recently.
Often when people have problems and worries they seem to come to me, whether that be to rant, to ask for advice or just to cry.
Sometimes I can find this a little frustrating as it can feel like people only want me when they have something wrong, and that they don’t really care about my own problems and issues.
I’ve also often been feeling rather emotionally drained with the burden of everyone else’s problems on my heart. I’m one of those people who can’t bear to see other people hurt or upset, and have spent several nights lately crying over other people’s problems, even if they have nothing to do with me!
I also find myself often feeling really, well, guilty I guess, when I feel upset over something small in my life when I know that someone else’s problem is so much bigger, if that makes sense?
Recently I’ve realised that actually being a comforter can be such a blessing to people when they need help, and it must show that they trust and love me, which has got to be a good thing, right?
Maybe being the person people always come to isn’t so bad, maybe it’s just my role, just who I am.
Maybe that’s who I’m meant to be.
Maybe not being the super popular and cool person is a good thing.
Maybe I’m meant to just be a helper behind the scenes, holding everything together, and not the main centre of attention.
Maybe that’s okay.
Maybe one day I could make a difference to someone in a big way.
Over to you…
Do you ever feel like this? Are you a comforter, or is there someone who you always go to when you have problems? It would be lovely if you could comment below, along with anything else you would like to say!
Also, I just wanted to let you know that if you ever have a problem or just something you want to get off of your chest, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact me through my Twitter or Facebook pages, the links for which should be in the sidebar >>>
