There's a light shining at the end of a dark tunnel which gives you the upliftment you need to carry on a few more steps to safety. Drawing firm boundaries is essential, as people all too readily eat up all of your leisure time. You don't have to be at everybody's beck and call at all hours of the day and night. If somebody approaches you for help when you know they can help themselves, turn them away. Be cruel to be kind for both your sakes. You've earned the right to have some peace and quiet!
