“How many times will you crush your soul with the weight of other's sorrows? How many anxious days and sleepless nights before you learn you cannot help each and every person in your life?
I feel a person cannot be there for everyone at all times. Some crisis are for them to deal with on their own. Your struggles are no less. Work on keeping yourself happy first, your well being matters too.
There's nothing to feel guilty about, they aren't your responsibility. Sometimes people ought to take accountability for their actions and deal effectively with the consequences on their own. Let people take responsibility of winning some battles by themselves. You've been fighting for too long now, in all the possible situations for them. You need to cut yourself some slack too. “

My mind often drifts to strange places,
leaving behind a question,
'what it's like to stay gone.'
Then there are questions
i do actually have answers for,
with known pathways.
'How to stay away from sinful thoughts.'
Find peace. Take a long walk.
Draw with ink, write with chalk.
There isn't a correct way
but running only invites more chaos
than already existing.
Peace is a slow and lonesome destination.
Like working with paint knifes.
Building courage from scratch.
Scrapping honey from past.
It requires patience more
than it requires anything else,
So let your wings fly you to places
with clear blue sky,
more greens than fissure lands,
that carry the warmth of serenity.
