i commend you for the assistance you gave that poor young lady. and i wish to point out that regardless of what faith inspired you to act, in the end, YOU acted. no one else. a human helped out another human being, not for profit but out of genuine compassion. i see that as reason to celebrate the human condition and leave the credit there.
i would call that a mental illness. not a serious one, but still an illness. its a shame to think someone as helpful as what you did could turn around and look at themselves like a bad guy because of something they did when they were 12. loosen up and let go. holding onto that shame and self-vilification is NOT a healthy response by any stretch of the imagination.
I told her, "Look wait right here, ( in front of the door) let me go
inside and get some more money. I'm going to take you to my wife".
