What have I done to deserve this?

It’s a sentiment we’ve all felt at times. And one we hear from clients from time to time, not to mention family and friends too(!). It’s underpinned by the feeling that they’ve been singled out for some special – and unwarranted – treatment. As though some higher force – whoever or whatever that may be – thinks they deserve particular punishment for some unspecified act or crime.
Perhaps it’s another person’s behaviour, an illness, society as a whole, government or something else completely different. Whatever the source, the message coming over loud and clear is that IT’S NOT FAIR AND they feel powerless to do anything about it. Just imagine a small child sulking and you get the picture.
