I always pride myself in being a strong, independent woman who doesn’t need anyone else to keep my chin up. It’s difficult to really upset me personally in a way that makes me upset about myself. However, more often than not I find myself being easily upset by those around me getting hurt. I somehow become so much weaker when it come to seeing my friends upset. Is it because I can’t do anything about it? Maybe it’s because it hurts to see that they can’t keep themselves strong the way I have taught myself, and that somehow seems unfair.
Recently I found a couple of my close friends are coming to the realization that one thing they invested a large chunk of their time and life into does not offer the brotherhood and friendship that they had assumed. Instead, they feel betrayed and disrespected. I hate seeing them so upset, and it makes me upset that I can’t really do anything about it.
I don’t like this. I don’t like this at all.
