I was kinda leaning on the 'helping a caterpillar get out of its cocoon' analogy.

Sometimes what seems like a case where one needs saving, is really only one's ego attempting to relieve their own discomfort watching someone suffer.

For an example..parents whose children end up getting cancer and have to watch them suffer for months, sometimes years. Sometimes they still die. Point is, I think most would tear their heart from their chest and give it willingly in the place of watching their child suffer like that..but there is nothing you can do. You just have to keep hoping and praying.

Of course I have faith in you.

Ah, yes. I see what you mean. We were just talking about that very thing in family therapy yesterday. How parents in addict families are desperate to save their children and in that desperation tend to enable them. That is a thing that must be considered.

My question was more of a hypothetical, though. I mean, if you were literally the only one who could help. In a case where a person inostensibly did need saving.

One the greatest quotes I ever read about parenthood mentioned how 'having a child, is like having your heart walking around outside your body..'

I thought that very keen.

It is my capacity to do the saving and what would be the consequence?
