Please Explain

How do you feel when those who are evil suffer? Do you rejoice that justice is done? Are you sad when anyone suffers? Do you have mixed feelings? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 863).

I would like to ask a psychological therapist two questions. If I come to you and say that I am the president of the United States, you quickly assess that I am delusional. If I come to you with a full set of male genitalia and say that I’m really a woman, you adjudge  a very interesting and profound psychological phenomenon and say that I am quite rational to think that way. Please explain. If I come to you and say that I am suffering from deep mental depression and plan to commit suicide, you step back and say that I have a right to do so – to end my own suffering. If, on the other hand, I sit here with a razor blade and slash my arm, you quickly intervene and say that you have a professional responsibility to do so. Please explain.
