Well said. In my own limited world of experience, I can say that every psychologist I have known has been a little (or a lot) unstable, neurotic or just downright strange.
I don’t think deserving has anything to do with it
I wonder when the divorce was because of domestic violence or addiction problems (for example)whether early exposure to these factors remains a significant influence on the child even after the divorce?
I don’t think there is any such thing as a non traumatic divorce for children. So there better be damn good cause to tear apart their life. Daddy needing his space or Mommy wanting to find herself ain’t it.
all that easier to TWIST, m’dear (cue evil laugh with lots of reverb)
Forgiving really means passing the burden on to God. It doesn’t mean excusing and it doesn’t mean taking foolish chances.
I have not read the report, do you know if the results were the same regardless of income?
Because of the example their supposedly responsible adult parents set (and get away with).
We are to forgive but we are not required to keep the abuser in our midst or ever trust them again. Sometimes forgiveness requires healing from the past first and they may still be living it or simply haven’t healed yet.
An adult cannot control another adult and if she wants to be abusive 24/7 then at some point a father would want to get some distance between his kids and his psycho wife.
I agree with you but it is very hard to forgive someone who has caused such emotional turmoil. I had a friend who caused me great pain. I finally cut things off with her, then felt guilty for treating her that way. I asked for forgiveness for my treatment of her but I still do not need her in my life. It also took some time before I asked the forgiveness, even though she was clearly the one who needed intervention.
