I know this is really really going to sound bad but sometimes I get friend requests that I just have to turn down. There are people I know are hurting and I want to help but I just can't relate to what they are going through. I have no words to say other than "I am sorry", "Hope your day gets better"... etc., etc.. All of that sounds so fake and trite! There are also some people whose lives are so unfathomly painful that when I read what is going on I internalize the pain. Selfishly I just can't do that. I am trying to heal too (and not doing such a great job). Anyone else feel like this when you get the requests? Hate "ignoring" someone that is hurting... but sometimes it's just too much.
