Sometimes you don’t know how far and deep the pain goes. You may have thought that spanking your kid was only a moment that eventually disappears.
And then you find out that the Victims (the child) NEVER outgrow the pain and they try to ‘medicate’ it by doing the same thing or other illogical actions/behaviors over-and-over well into adulthood. Or they continually ‘punish’ themselves for the shame. Or they abuse substances or other people in their lives. It is one of the worst of Sins.
Think about that and then about having a cheating employer who you defend until you discover they cheat you just as they do their clients/customers.
Which is worse?
