It’s been one of those days, a past couple of days, still wanting to save someone but knowing I can’t so I have to watch them go through so much pain. I can put opportunities out there but I can’t make the moves, the choices, the right decisions for them. I can’t save someone who doesn’t want to do the work to save themself.
I’ve done what I could and have to let go, again. It is so very hard to do. And it makes me angry, screaming, crying, wanting to pound the walls kind of angry.
As Forest Gump so wisely said, “Sometimes, I guess there’s just not enough rocks.”
Been there before. Sorry you’re going through that.
sending you big *HUGS*
Watching someone you care about go through pain, whatever the reason, is a hard thing. Just keep being there as much as you can. But take care of yourself.
I’m so sorry that you’re going through this. Be sure to take care of yourself.
Know just what you mean. Hope things improve and the one who needs the help figures it out- and gets it.
I’m sorry. 🙁
It’s the hardest situation to be in. My thoughts are with you and your troubled loved one. As
wrote, make sure you take care of yourself, too.
I’m so sorry, Susan. Hugs.
I know exactly what you mean . . . it’s just hard to have to watch when you want to reach in there and do what needs to be done.
Sending wishes of a hot bath, a great poem, white chocolate, and the drink of your choice to you. :>/
Letting go. Definitely the hardest thing. I looked for the quote, and now of course I can’t find it, but it’s in one of the Mrs. Pollifax mysteries, which is why I read them.
I forget who she’s been separated from, but that person’s in trouble and probably being hurt, and she is looking for them. And worrying. She reminds herself that she isn’t there yet, and she can’t take on their pain, but what she can do is keep going and keep herself as strong as possible so that when/if the time comes when she can do something, she’ll be able to.
Hang in there.
