Written about me in a public internet discussion:
Donny sounds like he’s got a savior complex.
My thoughts on the matter:
Dunno what you’d call it, but I can tell you it feels good to get it out and talk about it, telling people about reality and letting them choose what to do with the info.
It’s healing to have people tell you that your words influenced their life. Once in awhile, a marriage is saved. Sometimes a guy will talk about how his fascination with porn was taken away and he spends more time with his wife because of it. Women have cried into my shirt thanking me for taking responsibility and apologizing for producing something that ruined their marriage. Others have spewed a bit of hatred, which is fine too.
All of these things give me a sense that some good can come from the bad things I’ve done, and that is quite therapeutic.
Feel free to call it savior complex, if that’s how you perceive it. 🙂 Doesn’t hurt my feelings.
Most of all, it is very encouraging to know that God really can use all things for good, as he says.
