I wonder if it has something to do with the messages we grew up with. Did your parents make you earn your misery, or tell you that you had nothing to be miserable about?

I think my mother might have done a good job with that. She sympathized over my stubbed toe, even if someone else had a broken arm. (Unless it was someone who had just broken an arm and needed immediate medical care.)

It's our job in life to be the best people we can be. If pain is getting in the way of that, it's important. In this particular case, dealing with your own pain can help you deal more effectively with the pain of others.

You do deserve help with your issues. They deserve help with their issues. Unless you're denying them help by getting it yourself, they are two very separate things and needn't be compared.
