What is a Burden?

But here‘s how I try to think about it. I think it might help others, so I am sharing it here.


If someone you cared about deeply (could be a anyone, a partner, child, parent, etc.) has the same needs you do and you have the ability to help, would you want them to feel like a burden? Would you see them as a burden?


If not, try turning some of that care onto yourself.


Sorry, my energy has been really bad this past week, so this post isn’t very good. But try putting yourself in their shoes.
