There is a term for helping others without becoming emotionally wrapped up in it. That is called "empathy". It is a good thing to practice. You just have to tell yourself that you did the best that you could and every little bit helps. But try not to get emotionally involved to the point that it depresses you. Know that you did the best that you could.
This time of the year is so difficult, I think of it as the depression time of the year. I don't know why it is like that. I know that the days are starting to get longer, but it is like there is a lull after the holidays that we get sucked into and it makes us feel down. Try to remember that spring is just around the corner and things will get better. The sun is shining here today. I am thinking about going for a walk. That would help me to feel better. I have the sun shining on my face right now. I try not to complain about it being in my eyes. We see it so seldom right now.
I hope that you are feeling well, I am glad that you are having a better day today.
