It all boils down to this.
yeahmicah: Most people won’t admit it, or don’t even realize it, but caring for people takes energy out of you. Investing your time and attention making sure somebody knows that you love them and that you want to ensure their well-being can drain you: mentally emotionally spiritually even physically. Love people, but take care of yourself. Don’t burn yourself out.
