Sometimes there is such a fine line between being concerned and being too involved. There's a fine line between caring, and overstepping bounds. There's a fine line between what's appropriate, and what's not.
Sometimes your brain tells you which side of the line to stay on. Sometimes your heart does the telling. And sometimes fear of doing the wrong thing does the telling.
And then there's that whole "You can't unring a bell" thing that keeps you from acting.
Sometimes it isn't enough to consider just the here and now, but the future, one year, 5, 10, 15 years, if not longer, down the road needs to be considered.
And in the end, I have to remind myself that it really isn't my place to get involved. And that's hard, because quite obviously somebody does need to get involved. And here I am back to balancing on the thin line again.
