Some believe that in order to deal with current issues, one must be enough in tune with the past abuse that they can make a mental connection between current problems and the abuse roots. In other words, if I’m having a difficult time with life, it might help me to see how past abuse may be influencing my behavior today.
In order for any of this to work, we have to be willing to learn. I find that the most change-resistant personality is the one who operates in his world with inflexibility. I don’t think that the quote about insanity is accurate. I think it is more accurate to say that the definition of stubbornness is always doing the same thing the same way and expecting God to alter the universe to accommodate what you insist on repeating.
