My need to be needed

We yearn to heal, at the same time, healing scares us like hell.

“My Identity as a caregiver is bound up in the sickness of others.

Indeed, who would I be without the sick? Without the wrong thinking that promotes illness and evil, how could I ever be a healer and a saint?…This is all bound up in my need to be needed. It is a shock to think that I would prefer you ill so I can see myself as the special one come to save you.

It is actually my need to be special that supports your need to be ill.

It is very sobering to understand our dependence on the necessity of evil. Oh… how we need our enemies.”
