Nobody talks about how draining it is to be the friend with a good listening ear. Everyone comes to me with their problems because I have a way to make them feel better but it’s draining me. I have dark issues I’m dealing with myself but I don’t share them with anyone because it’s not my style. I can hardly say no to someone in need so they just keep coming. I have had to avoid texting some because a simple hello can lead to a three day rant about their problems. Therapist must have one of the hardest jobs.
