I'm not really sure what to say. You know you're a great poet. I tell you often enough. You're a great psychologist and found your calling in helping others. You endured great pain and licked your wounds, now seeking out those with similar wounds and helping them up. That's all admirable and speaks for your great character.
As odd as this may sound (but you'd understand as we discussed free will and determinism), I think the hardships you had to endure were meant to come. Through them, you've become who you are now. They were the tools to build your strength and prepare you for your calling.
I always enjoy your writing. You're a good friend and a great human being. Thank you for being you. I know it wasn't easy. 😊
