SSA Souls as Victim Souls

This is the first time I have ever seen anything quite so clear as this explanation of the possible purpose of SSA. The author also seems to have a pretty real understanding of the lonliness and pain of a Christian with SSA. He explains it well and admits his explanation is entirely from a Catholic point of view. But it makes sense to me that all this suffering has a great purpose. Nothing is wasted, right? At least, and so long as it is accepted as a cross and offered for others. So are we Victim Souls?

Will it make the pain less - the ache and lonliness, the intense longing? A Christian would have to answer yes if he believed Jesus promise, "Take up your cross daily and follow Me." Matt 16:24 My yoke is easy, my burden light." Matt 11:28

I for one feel better just knowing someone understands that we are in pain.
