Recovery After Abuse with Self-Love, Release, But What is Forgiveness All About

with Dr. Carol Francis

After individuals escape from abusive situations, or after prolonged abuse as a child, the efforts of recovery include learning to have self-respect, self-forgiveness and sincere self-love. Dr. Carol Francis discusses the various confusions about self-love and reveals self-respect as a more easily practiced exercise for recovery. Then she discusses the very dangerous preoccupation with trying to forgive a chronic abuser who might be a con-artist, sociopath, narcissistic individual or chronic abuser with a long history. Dr. Carol Francis explains how forgiveness is often used as a lure or trap which often keeps people entangled in abusive relationships. Finally, she encourages each person to listen to a truly moving, helpful and warm podcast interview she had this week with Dr. Bernie Siegel
