"If he had broken his leg and couldn't get in for that reason, there would clearly be nothing to be ashamed or guilty about. It's a rotten position to be in, but not an issue for blame. The fact that it's his feelings that are sometimes in the wrong arrangement for him to get to work, rather than his leg bones, makes little difference to us.
"Perhaps because our feelings are so much part of us, it may sometimes feel as though they are something we must be responsible for, and if they are out of control, that must be a failing on our part. But while I am not immune to that same feeling, it's not a conclusion I agree with."
