Caring people often feel responsible for other people's feelings and actions. Today, to the best of your ability, do not carry responsibilities that belong to another--do not do another's work, do not accept blame when it is not yours, do not feel guilt for another's actions. Do not feel a burden that you do not know how to fix another person's problems, but instead rest in Love's great and trustworthy arms that hold you both.
