How do you not let someone else's (someone you're extremely close to) pain not affect you so much?
You know that they’re struggling terribly, but, there is only a small amount that you can do? Also, doing/taking on and on thinking about it too much is affecting your life in a negative way?
How do you stop feeling guilty and go about your life knowing that they are suffering?
