I know I've already pinned this but it is describing me so well right now. All my friend's lives are falling apart and I'm so busy helping them , I can't help myself. Often times I forget how broken I am until I go to bed because I'm so busy taking care of others. The worst part is, is that I can't talk to anyone about it.
A lot of people can be very draining to be around and will suck you into their world of crazy by playing the victim role all the time. Be wary, often this is an excellent form of control because you aren't even aware that they are pulling your strings and making you dance.
Margaret Fuller was a very responsible person. Transcendentalists do not deny what they do, they do what is right. When her dad died, her family didn't have much money so she took responsibility and was a teacher to help the education of her family.
