Figured we needed one.
I volunteer on a Crisis Line where people will call in and often share things that may be bothering them. In some cases, these stories are incredibly morbid and are beyond what you'd read in any book, or could possibly imagine in a nightmare.
Now, I'm a very hopeful individual and I pride myself on trying to inspire others. However, in the case of some of these callers, call it intuition, call it cynicism, you name it... but deep down you truly empathize with them on a level that -knows- there is just too much to bare. Still, I throw blind faith and hope for the best, but I really just think I'm prolonging their suffering... part of me wants to say that they're better off dead.
