Simon of Cyrene Carries the Cross

At the sixth station Jesus cross is carried by Simone de Cyrene. The Gospel tells that he is forced by soldiers to carry it. My question today is: “Whose burden is laid upon me?” 


As an answer I have pulled the Fool from the Tarot of the Secret Forest. 


Since it is the carefree Fool I am tempted to say that I am not forced to carry a burden from someone. But I am afraid it is not me but the person(s) whose burden I carry are depicted here. I take upon me (I rephrase here, I know) the burden of them who do not take responsibility for their own lives.
