It seems lately i have taken on the problems of my friends, i am the constantly available counselor to them always willing to help because i know how important it is that i be there for them.
I am noticing however my problems are taking a significantly less important role in my life, setting me back in trying to fix all my internal problems (self confidence, self image, etc just to name a few)
I just don't know what to do, i can't not be there for my friends especially when they are certainly in need of my attention, but i can't neglect myself entirely .....i don't know what to do anymore, just being spread so thin....trying to be the pillar of strength for everyone with problems who are close to me and finding myself crumbling
Any insight into what I can do would be appreciated.

You won't make any money; it's the most difficult sport on Earth, I don't care what anybody says. You bust your ass in the gym for a lousy trophy that falls apart by the time you get it home, but it's a sport of love. You do it because you love it."
