Do the Abused Need to Forgive Their Abuser? About Boundaries for the Traumatized - J.S. Park
Everyone loves the idea of love and forgiveness—but do the abused need to "love and forgive" their abuser?
Here's my quick take on boundaries and self-care for the abused and traumatized. Watch this on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTgtEu5InBo
A romanticized culture of hyper-compassion easily leads to fatigue, disillusionment, and secondhand trauma, especially when we attempt to love those beyond our limits. I also share on trying to help those with mental illness, and the ugly reality that many of us are in over our heads and need to refer to professional help.

I wish I had heard of this channel before.
I found out about his podcast while reading his blogs, and they haven't disappointed! They're engaging, entertaining and biblically based! I'm definitely recommending him to my friends.
No Baby Food Here!
Pastor Park's teachings are inspiring, encouraging, challenging, and fun to listen to. He serves meat and potatoes with every "meal."
Pull up a chair, and bring your utensils - your Bible and a notebook - and be prepared for a feast! Invite your friends, there's plenty to share. :)
Praising Jesus for excellent Bible teachers!
What can we learn from someone who actually is not afraid to tell us the absolute truth with no other motivation than love for the Living God and His children? Dare to open the bible with this man and find Your purpose in the Kingdom. Listen and Live it!
