emotionally-invested in problems that aren’t my own.
i feel so unquestionably attached -
so irrevocably connected -
that my stress-levels increase and my rationale shuts down.
these feelings don’t discriminate based on creed, gender, sex, race, or interest.
they are constant and unyielding.
they come in waves that drown and revive.
and in the most painful moments of this recurring realization i learn - over and over a-fucking-gain - that I am unable to save anyone.
i am only human.
that’s my problem.
