Sometimes, we place ourselves in a position to care “too much” about others. We deal with the inevitable circumstance where we carry their burdens because we want to feel what they’re feeling. It’s a part of falling in love or developing deep feelings for someone who we’re uncertain feels the same way. It may seem strange, but it’s common, believe it or not. As a result, we lend our hearts, our kind words of encouragement, and hope that they see our hearts and words as the “pillow” to lay on when they’re emotionally tired.

 

 

Unfortunately, we as people pleasers will get tired of loaning our pillows to those who appear to not be appreciative. I’ve learned that if that becomes the outcome, I will choose not to feel helpless, hurt, or disappointed. Ppl don’t always respond the way we want for various reasons. It’s okay to pray for them. Ultimately, we’ll have to decide to not give up and continue to offer emotional support or let go. Not giving up is okay but sometimes, it takes letting go for them to see what you’ve wanted them to see all along.
In the end, always protect your heart.
