    Is there a way to set limits so that you are not giving what you do not have? It is exhausting to assist someone who is very upset, and yet, as you said, you cannot walk away...hope you find ways of taking care of yourself...big hugs, J

    I guess by limits Sadeyes means knowing when to back down a little bit.Learn your own limits by recognising when you need to help yourself before somebody else.It sounds selfish to put it into words but you cant give somebody 100% when you are running on empty yourself.

    Only today I learnt this lesson.:i'm sorry:

    Only you know how much emotional energy you have at any given time...never give more than you have or it will cost you...if someone is in crisis and requires that much attention, his/her problems may exceed what you can do...maybe this person needs professional help as well...also, it is very important that s/he takes responsibility where it is warranted...we cannot help anyone until s/he decides s/he will accept help...whoever s/he is, this person is fortunate to have a friend like you...again, big hugs, J
