Helpful insights for us rubes

This podcast covers topics that we usually don't talk about, unless we have to. Up to now, I have not been confronted with anything close to what any of these folk talk about here. Perhaps this ministry was set up to help people who confront terrible misfortunes in life. However, it is also helpful to us rubes (here, people who have been fortunate enough not to know what this is like as the victim or those close to the victim). After reading "Everything Happens for a Reason and other lies I have loved", I realized that I would probably say some things out of ignorance that would not be all that constructive. The interaction here helps me understand how I might do better, were I to find myself in the middle of these situations. I also think these insights can be extrapolated to other misfortunes (not quite as tragic) that we might face. As an aspiring teacher, I may end up needing to apply this, whether it be for myself or some of the souls that come under my care.
