do u feel over whelmed by this site sometimes?

I have started to get a lil overwhelmed by the friends I have met here. I feel sometimes like I am spending more effort and time and energy "helping" others than I am in real life. I know, I know, I need to make some boundaries- I just really feel good when Iknow I am helping someone thru a crisis. does anyone else get overwhelmed and if so how do u step back w/o hurting someone who needs u?

  • helping is admirable but we have to teach them to help themselves so it's not so overwhelming

  • No, not really. It sounds like you might need a day or two off girl. As long as I manage to put this at the end of my "to do" list... all is well. I don't let anything interfer with real life.

  • I was overwhelmed when I first joined, now I have the groups that refresh ME, too. It's a great in/out energy process.
