Thanks so much, Mike. I agree that there are those who are salvageable- yet the journey to discover what does and doesn’t work is as individual as fingerprints. At times I think that it is as much about self-discovery as it is about doing our best to save someone else. I’m not smart enough to know the difference. But I do know that at some point, we absolutely have to take care of ourselves, or we become worthless not only to those we love, but even more so to ourselves.
