other people's stress

I wish that I could put up a wall and not take on other people stress. Other people's challenges. Problems. Issues. But no, I embrace them and make them my own. Why else would I take on scanning a monumental stack of original art when it's someone else's job. Fix a friend's logo. With multiple edits. For free. Volunteer to design a project for an elementary school and take it as seriously as if it was an annual report. I angst over other people's jobs/homework/doctor's appointments. Babysitters/relationships/emotional well-being. Who's doing that for me?

There's a great big "L" on my forehead. Neon.
