My doctor/counsellor, is a church person.
I have integrity to my beliefs about child abuse, including physical discipline – being child abuse. And that it is not excusable, or condonable and shows darkness to me, I cannot have in my life.
So, I’ve asked the question, as to whether she agrees with, promotes, enables and encourages hitting children, as okay.
I have to ask it.
I am completely committed to removing anyone who promotes child abuse………. out of my life, immediately.
I will not have that darkness, in my life.
If people are capable of planned intent child abuse (sociopathy) ……. they are capable of any darkness.
I will not allow that in my life.
If she says yes – she hit her kids, or allowed her husband to, and thinks it’s okay – I will no longer be going to counselling.
And I care about her, far more than I should, so this will be very hard to deal with and there will be intense emotions and grieving.
And a deep sense of feeling very disappointed yet again, by another person I wanted to trust. And it will be my own fault I know. I made the choice to go to counselling, I made the choice, to not ask the question a lot sooner…
Preparing myself for the answer.
