To carry the universe on your back is to break your own world down into pieces and shatter it because you will get rid of all that you are, everything that you have, before you put the weight of others down. You will drop from your own shoulders just to be able hold the weight for others.
Though you feel it is, taking the weight others off of you and putting it down so you can carry your own when you start to break is NOT the same as letting them down. Don’t be scared to do the best or you, so you don’t lose all of your pieces.
You do not deserve to be lost, nor do you deserve to lose yourself because you want to help others not have to do experience those exact things.
Whatever they are going through, it is not your obligation to push them through. You are not responsible for their inability to carry themselves, only for your own strength. They will find theirs. It first takes them being left with no choice but to carry themselves. Don’t worry about them.
If holding onto someone means you have to let go of yourself, it is important that you let go of them.
