This is my first time posting on any forum.. i’m 20 and this feeling started when i was way younger but has become more intense. I really need help understanding why I love fixing people’s problem,it’s like an addiction(I guess it makes me feel needed) coz when I don’t have any problem to fix,I feel empty inside and I don’t really know what to do with myself, anyone feel this way? and how can I stop feeling like this plssss?
I read somewhere that at some level those that become therapists do so in the hopes of fixing and understanding their own issues. If you were helping someone with this empty feeling how would you say to them?
Everyone needs to feel needed and appreciated however you want to be careful it doesn’t become a compulsion and or means to distract yourself from your own becoming.
