I would never hate taking on that role, and I find that I'm very good at shifting through a persons emotional trouble and helping them realize how to deal with it. With that being said its up to the person to limit or otherwise contain themselves as to the amount they wish to divulge.
Currently though I'm not accepting any withdrawals, but in the future I see myself being weary about how much I allow someone to unload on me. But knowing me I would still allow it because I'm such a nice person.
Thats brutal honesty in a nutshell I should think. =)
