A Listener

I wish I could fix everything, that's the problem. I act as a magician and try to fix everyone's problems and issues, but I can't. I'm not a magician. I'm not a doctor. I'm not a healer of any kind. I'm simply a listener. That's difficult to come to terms with, just being a listener. It feels so idle and pointless and rather useless. I need listeners, and I need them often. I need someone to rant to about something serious and someone to complain to about annoying little things that happened throughout my day. Listeners are extremely valuable, but I just personally wish I was more than that. 

It's so unfair that the people you care about have been dealt bad cards, and I would do anything in this world to deal them new better ones. But I can't. I'm not a card dealer. I'm just a listener. I see my loved ones falling and I want nothing more then to pick them back up, brush them off and send them on their way feeling better and happier. But I'm not strong enough to do that. 

I have to accept the fact that I'm am not a problem solver. I can't be. It's impossible. I can only listen to their problems and be there for them. That's all I can do. I'm simply a listener.
