That felt very good.
One of the results of my ability to get things done was that one of the members of my family they were sent by another family member for help. I was told that much into my adult life. In a way I liked being in that position.
It becme a problem later because I had a Messiah complex,That gave me the feeling that I had to solve all problems’. One night I stayed up all night devising a plan to end the homelessness problem. My Good an faithful big brother said you can not solve your own proplems so I do not think you can get rid of the homeless problem.
