It pains me to see those I’m close to hurting or having problems, especially when I can’t do much beyond comfort them. I’d take on all their problems; I will suffer - even if it meant losing my own sanity - just so life would be easier for them, if but for a moment. It’s wishful thinking, but if it were possible, my wishful thoughts would just as well become operational actions. Be it family or friend, we are all tied together.
"But God has so constructed the body as to give greater honor to a part that is without it, so that there may be no division in the body, but that the parts may have the same concern for one another. If [one] part suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if one part is honored, all the parts share its joy."

As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.
There’s a difference between somebody who wants you and somebody who would do anything to keep you.
