Today, I am pleased to share with you a talk by Aaron J, speaking in 2012.
I identified with his certainty that it was his “job” in life to take care of everyone around him. I share his frustration when those same people didn’t do what he knew was best for them. He got in deep much more quickly than I did, but that may be more about opportunity than inclination.
