     Just realised recently, as a parent and partner, my absurd self-sacrificing heroics is what  has got my sense of self into trouble, trying to fix it for everyone in a transactional dynamic that leads to fantasy of return on investment  rather than being kind to myself and by extension others, Put down the boulder. Stop trying to please and simply be, it is not all my responsibility nor is it all my fault. So yes its n ot about doing the right thing it is about doing the kind thing.
