Sharing Chris`s reaction on my dedication...

Sharing with you some lines from Christophers latest letter, his reaction and questions on my dedication to do this work...

"For me, I swim, but the hardships are wide and deep. It`s tough, but I keep turning the pages one at a time. I can only hope the end of this saga will come quick...This is a heavy book I`m carrying...old AND heavy

...You know I sit and think, what keeps you so dedicated to souls who`ve neglected themselves and wound up in a desperate situation? And you, neglect yourself to help those of us who in the MAJORITY; are helpless...beyond help, hopeless because their situation is set in concrete...Only time can ease our burdens.

So why do you neglect yourself? Of course, you wouldn`t say "neglect"...but do you think happiness in your personal life is worth the energy you spend in the aid of others? "Others" who are a tad bit better mentally, because of your sacrifice, but in NO way near to gaining the emotional happiness you give up? You would agree, you give more than you gain emotionally? Right?
How is this exchange effective emotionally?
Help me understand...if I remember correctly, your environment disapproved of all the time you spent sacrificing yourself, yet you let this encourage you to keep going on?...
