I would have to say that 3 hits the closest to home for me. I am
suicidal and my friends were worried, so I went to see a counselor. I
said some stuff to which she replied something along the lines of "you
give great care towards others and not enough towards yourself. You
feel guilty for helping yourself so you choose to help others." So I
guess I am a natual giver...

I do make a difference, a small one. But it's not enough. And I
would rather not see the consequences of the fact that I cannot help
enough people.
