I need to read that book again. I really do need to free myself, as you have. I asked my best friend today why I was letting this bother me. Why do I even care two shits about this person who was so unkind.

I felt better when she reminded me that it’s out of genuine concern for his well-being. She reminded me that I’m a good and caring person and that’s why it hurts and why I give a shit.

I just need to work on the part where I detach myself from other peoples issues while still being able to care about those people.
