Our expert says:
Shaun, nobody who has read any of your posings can have any doubt that you are one of life's good guys, whether or not that satisfies you. You have empathy, understanding, and are prepared to go to quite a bit of trouble to be helpful to others. And your advice is practical, realistic, and well-expressed. Straycat's comments make a lot of sense-- you lead with the heart, though you also have much intelligence. SO you're probably very vulnerable to being hurt as well, rather than being one of those heavily armoured guys with bullet-proof souls.
None of us ever finds a good answer to the "why me?" question. A patient I had back in my years in London, showed me his journal, in which in the middle of one page, he'd written : "WHY ME ? 'Cause it's my turn"
Now be as patient, understanding, gentle, compassionate and supportive to yourself, as you are to everyone else in need.
