Such martyrs keep foolish people dependent upon martyrs' services by over-responsible martyrs' never learning from the consequences of their compulsive service. Compulsive martyrs teach others to be dependent in unhealthy ways. Martyrs need to learn how to express their feelings of compassion without teaching others to depend upon compulsive martyrs to rescue them from their mistakes. Martyrs need to learn to feel compassion for themselves and the mistakes they themselves have made; and to take care of their own health, to protect their own integrity. If they lack integrity, they cannot help others to enjoy integrity. Disintegrating people cannot protect the integrity of others who fail to work to protect their own integrity. Integrity is not served by compulsively sacrificing your own integrity again and again to rescue people who refuse to protect their own integrity. Such martyrdom only teaches others to take advantage of martyrs. People are not well served when they are heavily protected from the consequences of their own mistakes. It is foolish to make great sacrifices of one's own integrity in attempting to keep such people from disintegrating themselves. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
