    ok so i was talking to a friend tonight shes been in a really bad place she told me that she nearly attempted tonight. i told her that if she felt like this again then she should text me. i worry alot about her shes a very dear friend. her reply to this was that she doesnt want to upset or bring me down and that she noes i have my own stuff to fight, i told her that she wasnt going to bring me down and her not talking to me because i have my own proplems is just going to make things worse because its like ok so because i have my own proplems i cant help others, i dint no how it is for the rest of the people on here but for me its helping others that keeps me going i would have given up along time ago if there wernt people who needed me. even at my worst im still there for others its what holds me together i was just wondering are there others like this like my other friend the other day was asking me how i could keep it so together for everyone else when i was falling apart she said that when she was at her worst all she wanted to to was hide from the world not be out there helping others. what is it that makes our responces to our hard times so diffrent why is it that i deal with my own stuff by helping others and she hides?
    idk what the point of this was i just got to thinking and yea idk...
    sorry for wasting peoples time.
