I care about my friends. I know a lot of people, but don't have very many close friends. I've had some go and do things which I could see were destructive, but beyond giving the occasional advice or being there to help pick up the pieces, I can't do much about it.
Once I had a conversation with someone who lost sleep because of a friend, who was in trouble. I couldn't understand it. Until now. Its hard when you see those you love hurting. I wish I could pass on my "Pollyanna perspective" on life. I care about people even when they don't want me to. Its who I am and what I do.
